Last month I went to the Coliseum to see the English National Opera's production of Rigoletto, set in 1950s Little Italy in Jonathan Miller's iconic New York staging.  Giuseppe Verdi's three-act opera is one of the best-loved in the repertoire and tells a tragic story of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice.

Like most girls my age, I grew up loving the 90s classic Beauty and the Beast, singing along (I still seem to know all the words to Belle) and dreaming of living in an enchanted chateau, swishing around a grand ballroom in a beautiful ballgown.  Hell, I still do.  Of all the Disney remakes, this is the one I was most excited about, so I was thrilled to go to the London premiere last week.  The film is SO good and my Emma Watson girl crush has soared to new heights.  There are lots of exciting collaborations to promote the new film, but this is my favourite...
