shame we lost the last thread! anyway, time to resurrect it.
Last weekend we were back at the Nova to see one of The Met "Winter Highlights" performances. This one was 'La Traviata'. Stunning modern take, with a very minimalistic set - basically a big light grey semi circle, with a vivid red couch in the middle, and a huge clock on one side. Was an excellent production. We're trying to find time to see La Trav again in a couple of weeks at the Anthenaeum - Antoinette Halloran is singing Violetta.
Saw 'King Kong' today. Wow. The way they're created him - it's incredible. Had some good singing and dancing as well, but I was just captivated at how they could make him so lifelike. It was genuinely scary at times!
Coming up in the next couple of weeks, the MSO production of Verdi's 'Requiem', and then some ballet - Matthew Bourne's 'Sleeping Beauty'. Very much looking forward to both.
