Well Holly is doing it, Hugo is doing it, Imogen is doing it and even my boss is doing it so I thought I’d try blogging it. Even though in fact I can kind of blog anyway via the groovy interface my server provides me…
This weekend I worked both days so it doesn’t feel like I’ve had much of a weekend. I did go and see Carmina Burana with Abi on Saturday night while everyone else in the world appeared to have been at the Rugby. Yes I did have the chance to go but didn’t fancy it… well unless one is in a box dear…
Carmina Burana was beautiful. The dancing expressive, the music uplifting, the choral work divine. There were only three performances of this work by Carl Orff. It was a sold-out season and we didn’t have tickets but we thought that maybe there might be some returns and if not we’d just go to a movie or something… so we went. And got tickets in the stalls for $25 each. Bargain! I think we might do it again!
I didn’t know anything about the production – philistine – but immediately recognised the first piece of music O Fortuna from the Old Spice ad and I’m pretty sure The Omen movies too.
Lyrics – Music and Story
This week Imogen and I go to see Sleeping Beauty on Ice.
Dad completed the Archetrek Foundation Mapping Course this weekend and enjoyed it he says. I was excited to hear what he has on his map. Many of these won’t be a surprise to you: Mars, Saturn and Zeus, Master~Slave~Addict, Manager~Director, Pioneer~Adventurer, Designer, Engineer, Lion~Coward (was a bit of a surprise), Historian~Scribe, and oh bugger! I can’t remember the last two! I’ll have to come back to them. Anyway he enjoyed meeting Katie and he said the food was delicious. Its all good.
