A Good Night In

dark queen
I normally despair over much of the programming on telly in Australia, but last night was a beauty.

The ABC put on a screening of Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty, and what a feast for the eyes and ears it was!

If you got to see it live, I'm positively green with envy, if you saw it at the cinema, I'm still rather greenish... and if you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favour and do so! I thoroughly enjoyed this in every way and am still hoping it will come to our local arthouse cinema soon, as, if I can't see it live, watching this on the big screen will still be a treat, given by how impressed I was watching it on TV.

The whole production is superb.

To give you a little taste, here's the trailer for it.



Seriously, even if you're not a fan of the ballet, give this a go - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for that.
Think I'll have to find the full version.
And Merry Christmas from the Land of the Long White Cloud.

Ahhhh! Couldn't keep away from the atipodes, eh? (being Aussie, I have a compulsion to state the bleeding obvious...sorry!)

Merry Christmas to you, my friend and please pass on Chrissy wishes and love to you know who(s)!

If you get a chance to see this production, do please grab it - I thought it was wonderful!
