"Imagine: Alan Yentob" is what people say to me when they want to ruin my day.
'Imagine: Alan Yentob'. It's only a matter of time.
Re La Boheme - in spite of our wonderful day yesterday, with my critic's hat on, I put it to Daniel Skelton last night that I've always thought the opera has a narrative flaw - a clumsy jump from the scene at Cafe Momus in Act 3 to Act 4 - as though there's a whole, and very obvious, chunk of story missing. Well, that's because, for some reason, Puccini took out an act from the libretto - (only discovered when the wife of one of the librettists, Illica, died some time in the '50s.) No-one knows for sure where it would've been placed but I think it's clear it would've gone between the existing Act 3 and Act 4 because it centres around a party, after Musetta's jealous, rich lover causes her eviction, during which she introduces Mimi to a Viscount. If this had been included we wouldn't have needed all of Musetta's retrospective explanation in Act 4 about where Mimi has been and there would've been more basis for Rodolfo's jealousy etc so why doesn't someone put this Act back in, eh? It's an obvious gap - and ...

There is a man laying flat on the floor with his head under one of my tables when I arrive at the stand this morning. i'm told that he is admiring my joints. He WAS wearing hush puppies but didn't have a beard, which is probably why I was surprised. The day got better with some solid leads to follow up; set of chairs perhaps, a desk and some garden furniture. Lots of praise and admiring comments, which is always nice. The sunny weather, and Bank holiday did mean lots of people visiting the stand today. Ther seems to be a lack of celeb sighting s this year. Alan Yentob, Lloyd Grossman, Korky Paul and Sandi Tostvig were the few spotted today. Insult of the day:- ( on my sideboard of Spalted Beech, probably the star of my stand so far) "THAT is just rotten to me. i wouldn' t be happy using anything that interesting" - followed by lots of questions on how I sharpen my chisels.
