In the capital, every Munchener seemed to have downed tools and taken up positions at the pavement cafés and gardens . Nothing quite so cheerful as drinking beer to the sound of waltzes and polkas played by a live oompah band. It wasn't all sunshine and smiles though. There were some grim violent scenes too. Not on the streets I hasten to add but on the set of the Bavarian State Opera production of Mussorgsky's Boris Gudonov updated to a contemporary setting. We caught up with cast member Clare tenor , Dean Power now in his second year as a member of the Staatsoper Ensemble.
