  • The ROH could also take a critical look at its shop. We went to Mahagonny last week which, incidentally, we enjoyed. We thought that the shop might have books, CDs, or something relating to Brecht/Weill – a tee shirt even. There was nothing, not a book nor a CD. Most of the stock seemed to be focused on ballet rather than opera. Contrast this with the National Portrait Gallery’s Wellington exhibition and the associated materials available in their shops, and it isn’t a large exhibition (also recommended by the way.) The programme for Mahagonny was excellent but it mentioned titles one might have expected to find in the shop.
