Madam Butterfly in Woolwich

General Gordon Square is THE cultural centre of Woolwich. Following on from Les Girafes on Saturday evening, tonight we have a live broadcast of Madam Butterfly direct from the Royal Opera House. Yes folks, we can watch a live performance from one of the top opera companies in the World and we don't have to pay £200 for the privilege.

Madam Butterfly is one of the most popular operas around, and would you believe it, you WILL know some tunes from it, so come along and hum along.

Monday 4th July. 7.30pm. General Gordon Square, Woolwich.

Shame it's so late as this is easily my fave opera. Did you go?

We went along but only stayed about 10minutes as (like you say), it was too late and we had to get the halflings to bed.

There was a really good turn-out and the square looked great being used for a cultural event. Let's hope such events will flourish.

My criticism is that the sound quality was pretty poor, especially as music is key to opera. Anyhow, I'd say it was a big success.
