Opera is voice of the peo­ple

The Rugby Paper - - News -

LAST week’s col­umn on the strik­ing dif­fer­ence in ticket prices be­tween rugby and foot­ball in­ter­na­tion­als in Cardiff prompted a ver­i­ta­ble flood of re­ac­tion on so­cial me­dia, mainly from rugby fans who say they can no longer af­ford to watch their team.

Jo Wil­liams, who lists her loves as rugby, theatre, food and drink, made a telling point: “Re­mem­ber when Wales ar­gued for a rugby sta­dium in­stead of an ‘elit­ist’ opera house? Got both in the end but opera’s more ac­ces­si­ble now.”
