One of the things we love doing in London is to go to some kind of event like a play, live jazz, a concert, an opera etc. The last time we were in London we decided not to go to any of them because the situation with Covid was still bad enough to make us worry, but we felt we can now as things seem to be almost back to normal (there are still people infected but the number of people seriously ill and killed by Covid is significantly smaller). So we booked tickets for Madam Butterfly tomorrow and were looking forward to going to such an event for the first time since the start of the Pandemic. However, we received an email from the Royal Opera House this afternoon saying the event was cancelled due to the railway strike as their staff cannot reach there. So sad….
