Letters, Riddles and Writs
Letters, Riddles and Writs is a one act opera for television by Michael Nyman. The story is devised by Nyman, with a libretto by Jeremy Newson and Pat Gavin that incorporates Emily Anderson's English translations of correspondence and other texts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the subject of the opera.
The opera premiered on the BBC television miniseries, Not Mozart, directed by Newson and Gavin. Ute Lemper played the role of Mozart. Nyman appears as a court pianist instructed to play an "offending extract" of the String Quart in E flat major, K. 428 when Joseph Haydn (Julian Glover) accuses Mozart of musical plagiarism in court, and Mozart complains that Nyman has slowed down his chords. This section of the opera is an opera buffa-style interlude. The majority of the opera is more serious. Extracts of the opera are featured on The Michael Nyman Songbook and Mozart 252.
The film also features David Thomas (bass-baritone) as Leopold Mozart and Tony Rohr as Ludwig van Beethoven.

A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma | Roger Ebert's Journal | Roger Ebert
I'm posting this review of "Cloud Atlas" both on my web site and as a blog entry, because the blog software accepts comments and I want to share yours. At the end, I have added the post-screening press conference at Toronto. Even as I was watching "Cloud Atlas" the first time, I knew I would need to see it again. Now that I've seen it the second time, I know I'd like to see it a third time--but I no longer believe repeated viewings will solve anything. To borrow Churchill's description of Russia, "it is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma." It fascinates in the moment. It's getting from one moment to the next that is tricky.

Zelo Street: Panorama – There May Be Writs
[Update at end of post} This evening, the BBC’s long awaited Panorama on the affairs of Frederick and David Barclay (aka The Fabulous Bingo Brothers) is set to be broadcast, after acting Director General Tim Davie gave the nod. The Bingos are notoriously sensitive about anything that looks remotely like criticism, and this, coupled with their legendary humourlessness and willingness to sue, means their lawyers will be watching.
