For the second edition of International we are at locations as far apart as Bruges and Beijing. We have reviews of two major opera productions – Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg in Vienna and we talk to the director of Tosca in Munich. We have a profile of a Scottish clown who is equally at home in the circus ring or playing Shakespeare. It’s 150 years since the first impressionists showed their work and we have a report from Paris on an exhibition to celebrate the fact. Nadya Tolokonnikova, of the notorious Russian feminist/anarchist group Pussy Riot, is exhibiting in Austria and we visit the excellent Ludwig Museum in Koblenz. There’s a wonderful new book on the Jerusalem Chapel in Bruges and we report on an arts festival in China.
