Dear Sara, I was just about to send an email off to you to tell you how very much we all appreciated your wonderful programme on Saturday – it certainly made this a party that no one will forget! Colin’s only regret is that he didn’t get to dance with you more, and everyone praised both your singing and your wonderful rapport with your audience.
We would love to see you on the stage, and would be happy to help. I’m copying this to Sir John Baker, who, you will recall, was Chairman of ENO. However, both he and Colin, who was on the board of WNO, are not currently involved, so do not have a direct line to a casting director. We would be happy to write an endorsement, if you think that would help.
