Good list - I'd add Constellation's "Marriage of Figaro" because I absolutely adored it. Freaking amazing.
Thanks Jack! I'll definitely get in touch with you when I figure out when I can come. I don't want to miss H6 part two. We are all big fans of ASC here. I try to take a trip down at least once a year, indoctrinating friends along the way.

I thought Blind Beggar suited the strengths of the company so well; I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard.
