Beautiful Evelyn Lear is dead

I remember, I remember, a concert performance of The Trojans At Carthage at the Albert Hall. Evelyn Lear was stunning in a blue dress as Dido. Ronald Dowd was inspired as Aeneas. Magically the middle-aged balding Australian seemed to be transformed into the classic hero before my eyes in their love duet hymning the night of intoxication and infinite ecstasy. Something prompted me to turn to my companion and I could see that there were tears in her eyes. Affection turned to love in that moment.
