This week has seen some crazy weather, and both Nicky and Stuart had transport disruption. Nic flew to Australia on Tues 30/11 - the plane to Doha was delayed and she missed her connection. She was treated to a day in Doha. On the same day Stuart drove to Leeds to work with Opera North, on an all Russian programme including Stravinskys The Firebird. Yorkshire had some of the worst of the recent cold snap, only second to the Scots. The photo shows the view from the car going to work on Wed 1/12. As Stuart watched a huge snow dump thro the rehearsal, Nicky was watching the desert in Doha. Odd indeed!
