We asked her a few questions
- After you finish a concert, what is the first drink you want to have in your hand? Definitely champagne! Best when on the Mornington Peninsula at my festival 🙂
- If there weren’t external factors involved, how long do you think a concert should go for? Between 50mins (without an interval) & 2hours (with an interval) – and preferably some food & wine nearby 😉
- When should we clap? Anywhere you feel you should – 18th & 19th century audiences also booed, whistled, ate, threw food, played cards, had sex, and drank during concerts. Bring back the opera-concert room mosh pits of early Sydney, Melbourne & Hobart we say – The Tap Room & Theatre Royal Concerts live on where the audience came back even rowdier after interval!!
