Tomorrow at 7pm on BBC2, there’s a new Opera being screened: The Little Prince.
So what, I hear you say?
It’s only that the lead role is being taken by Joseph McManners, a fantastically talented 11 year old that I’ve had the pleasure of shouting at and threatening to kill on a couple of occasions this year…
Joe was the lead Oliver! in the production where I understudied Bumble, and played Isaac to my Abraham in the Mystery plays… I taught him everything, you know.
He’s far too bloody talented, and I resent him with every fibre of my body.
To those over the pond, the production will be on PBS in March, apparently, but on CD & DVD from Monday
