Dark Heart, La Traviata, Parks and concerts

TV drama Dark Heart by Unforgotten writer Chris Lang reviewed; Chris Addison and Flora Willson discuss Verdi's opera La Traviata; and local parks as concert venues.

Actor, comedian and opera fan Chris Addison discusses his role in La Traviata: Behind the Curtain, a new series of talks exploring the historical and social context of Verdi’s opera La Traviata for this year’s Glyndebourne Tour. He’s joined by musicologist Flora Willson, who explains why this 19th century work is the most-performed opera in the world.

Dark Heart is the new ITV police procedural by Unforgotten writer Chris Lang, in which troubled detective DI Wagstaff takes on a case involving a series of gruesome vigilante murders. TV critic David Butcher considers if the series brings anything fresh to the genre.
