Dress to unim­press

BBC Music Magazine - - The Full Score -

It was Anna Pat­a­long’s out­fit as much as her singing that grabbed the at­ten­tion at a re­cent con­cert at the Royal Al­bert Hall. On the same day as anti-brexit pro­test­ers took to the streets of London, the opera so­prano ap­peared on stage in a yel­low and blue dress adorned with yel­low stars – a show of proeu­rope sen­ti­ment that brought com­plaints from some au­di­ence mem­bers. Pat­a­long was asked by the venue to wear a dif­fer­ent dress for the fol­low­ing evening’s per­for­mance.
