Message from one of our artist friends in a major opera house:
Rehearsal day one, with a stinker of a cold. I want to be a good colleague and respect that they might fear I’m still contagious, which I’m certainly not, and if I just sit quietly at the back and join in the bits I feel I can sing, they’ll tolerate me.
But what do you, oh good singer friends, think is the right thing to do? Stay away, or turn up? I have about an hour to decide.
