BLACKING UP AT THE OPERA

One thing that seriously pissed me off recently,was hearing that the Royal Opera house were still blacking up performers for parts in Opera's.Along with this nuisance was the realisation all through my recent forays into the classical world that some things are still blatantly being upheld that should be shut down.So it was a pleasure to see these articles in the Guardian and Independent newspaper were someone had complained about the blacking up of a performer,resulting in the opera house quickly rethinking their practice and stopping this foolishness. OTHELLO "foresooth Protesting doth work" McBlair "lets tax it then"? check out the articles http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,1646799,00.html and also here http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/music/news/article328292.ece
