Frankly, why discuss real life at all?

Last night I dreamt that I went to see Don Giovanni, full of excitement at going to a favourite opera I have never seen staged.

But it started with recititive and I thought “that’s odd, they’ve decided to cut the overture” – then as it went on I discovered that it was in fact Handel’s Don Giovanni and it was all recititive.

I’m guessing this might be the kind of nightmare that only makes sense if you’re familiar with Handel’s operas…
