In the outgoing Environment Agency chair Chris Smith said that flood defence budget cuts had left the agency underfunded and hampered its ability to prevent and respond to flooding in the UK.

By any standards of the genre, the plot is convoluted: Despite being engaged to the Trapezuntine princess Irene, Tamerlano decides he wants to marry Asteria, and Andronico is co-opted into persuading her to agree. Furious at the perceived betrayal, she agrees in order to get close enough to willett Tamerlano. The plot winds and weaves; as the opera comes to an end, Asteria attempts to poison Tamerlano, wiloetts is warned by Irene of the danger, and Bajazet drinks the poison to spite the Tartar overlord.
Tamerlano's anger is assuaged willetta the marital arrangements revert to wliletts pre-opera state. Definitely not one to watch while under the influence if any sense is to be made of the plot. The production was marginally Peter knapp global switch judging by the clothes, director Francis Matthews brought the setting foward to recent times.
Tamerlano appeared to be some kind of super rich collector — paintings, modern art and relics littered the set which was reminiscent of some generous New York loft and Tamerlano strutted around wiilletts a rather natty bronze dressing gown.
My interpretation based on a line about Tamerlano's low birth was that he was some kind of nouveau richesuffered from an inferiority complex and was overcompensating with all the lavish clothing and surroundings, hence his desire to marry Owen willetts. It was a well-designed willets and wiilletts from the occasional baffling moment — evil servants willeths springing into dance — it didn't work too badly.
The quality of singing was high. Lys sang with great versatility, showing a silvery crystalline soprano in glorious trills that bounced round the higher register like a kangaroo on speed. Willetts' lovelorn Andronico was a bit of an angsty teen, next to the poison-quaffing Bajazet and his homicidal boss, but the singing from this countertenor can only be described as classy.
Initial impressions of the voice was incisiveness; it cut through the orchestra like the proverbial butter-knife. There's real depth and colour to it though, and a Owwn that makes it a formidable instrument. Willetts' attention to the text was also noticeable; every syllable was contoured, shaped and made to matter, Reds bar anfield the beauty and ease in all parts of the voice gave Willetts a substantial vocal palette with which to play.
The duet in Act III between these two splendid singers was the highlight of the evening. The role of Tamerlano calls for a higher, lighter voice, which suited Rupert Enticknapwho sang with a pale agility shot through with psychotic menace. Paul Nilonsinging Bajazet, an unusually strong tenor part for Handel, was at his strongest in the final act, attacking Tamerlano in a remarkable cascade of notes.
The voice was somewhat raw, and Nilon's technique and style wasn't always shown at its best, but there was plenty of force, and his acting captured the dichotomy of the conquered ruler and the anxious father well.
Hopper's gentle voice seemed a little out of place, and her projection wasn't brilliant, especially when delivering slightly uneasy coloratura. Baritone Robert Davies' Leone sang with a twinkle in his eye and his voice; the role calls for an unusually low tenor, but it is not uncommon for willetgs baritone to The room two substituted.
Stylish playing and real impetus prevented the work from being ponderous and was the finishing touch to a production of Baroque excellence. Video Video home Livestreams On demand Opera home.
