After dinner we go to Falstaff at the opera, & I am more thrilled than I have been for ages - & so was the audience. 1st perf. at opera and the applause lasted for nearly 1/4 hr. Clemens Krauss conducts splendidly, & the orch. was simply a miracle of perfection - Falstaff was played by Jaro Prohaska, who was a great singer, & gave a delightful character study. The whole cast sang & acted splendidly, esp. Mrs Quickly (Fr. Anday). The scenery & ballet at the end were enchanting. But the greatest honours go to great old Verdi - for his glorious score - humour, tenderness abounding, & the glorious fugue to end. Hats off, Genlemen!!
