I went back to see the ENO "Tosca" again last night. I'm really glad I did - I think I appreciated more of the subtleties for seeing it twice. Also the cast had settled more fully into their rôles, which meant two of them were even better than the first time (yum!) and the one I thought a little duff before was in much better form. My gods, Amanda Echalaz is stunning. The only problem about going a second time was being left once again with a vague and slightly kinky crush on Scarpia. Yes, I know, he's the bad guy. But I do like my baritones.
