  1. Judging by the headline I thought this was going to be about who is singing the Bugs Bunny role.

    Not really breaking news – the inclusion of Terfel in the Walküre cast was on the Proms website as soon as the programme went live, or at least by the time I looked at it shortly thereafter. Now, when do we find out how Barenboim’s recovery is going?
