Looking behind before looking ahead
Only intermittent updates as we are on the road at the moment.
We managed to get in a festive show before heading North, in this case it was the version of Cinderella set in World War II London, culminating in a train ride exit via Paddington. Prokofiev's score and Matthew Bourne's choreography. Creatively staged and lit, with evocative staging, but somehow in a world between the Prokofiev romance and a possible blitz spirit from the setting.
We all wondered if a more popular music forties score could have created more of a consistent atmosphere.
Then on to the Thai place around the corner.
