Me? Listen to Audio?! #43
I really enjoyed this one. It is an adaptation. And I am fairly sure they didn’t stick too closely to the actual book when it comes to minor characters and minor plot points. But it was a FUN listen. It is always a treat to revisit this series. I’ve now listened to The Warden, Barchester Towers, Doctor Thorne, and Framley Parsonage.
The Opera Companion. Bryony Lavery. Originally aired 2004 on BBC Radio. 45 minutes.
Stars Derek Jacobi as Albie and Nichola McAuliffe as Marguerite.
Will two shy opera-lovers bond over opera? Is this the beginning of a fine romance? Or is their “love” doomed from the start since these two will be battling it out over an arm rest.
I accidentally listened to this one. It automatically started playing after The Small House At Allington. It was a happy accident. It was a hoot. Well, it was a hoot until it wasn’t.
