What to do when somebody steals your opera champagne?main
From a Slipped Disc reader:
While I was buying drinks at the bar in the first interval of Götterdämmerung yesterday at Covent Garden, two distressed audience members came up to complain. They had pre-ordered champagne and sandwiches before start-up, but when they reached the appointed place the goodies had been nicked
The bar staff didn’t appear at all surprised and gave them replacements. Was this a Nibelung raid, or do ROH patrons paying £250 or so a seat not scruple at scoffing other peoples’ nosh?
Any more first world problems?
