We are about to head off home.

After ten lovely days in Lisbon we came back to Germany for ten days in Berlin, via a short diversion to Rotterdam to catch up with friends. A lot has happened and there's heaps of stories and snaps for later.

We're just back from a hugely emotional night at the Philharmonie. The orchestra is simply in a class of its own and the love that was poured out for Barenboim with a genuine and sustained standing ovation was very affecting.

Earlier in the week any apprehensions about The Love for Three Oranges at Deutsche Oper were quickly dispelled with a witty Carsen production brilliantly delivered (Steven Sloane), sung in the original French with German and English subtitles. It was stunning.
