(Yes, we are still 'thinking purple'}

Tonight I'm taking my son and his girlfriend to see The Shining, the opera based on the book by Stephen King. Just enjoying - not working.


Incredibly well-done production, beautifully performed. All seats, all standing room - sold out, every performance.

These two got the wildest applause from the 'audience' at Dress. Halloran (Arthur Woodley) and Danny (Alejandro Vega) in working rehearsal (Nov 2015)
