NUTCRACKER BALLET BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME

jenna-roberts-as-the-snow-fairy-in-birmingham-royal-ballets-the-nutcracker-credit-roy-smiljanic-smal

Went to the ballet last night. Absolutely beautiful production, amazing set changes, orchestra perfect, and the dancing excellent. Two and a half hours is about an hour too long… but that’s down to Tchaikovsky. Modern life requires less rather than more. I would recommend everyone to see at least one ballet in your lifetime. This is my third.

BOWIE THE LONG VIEW:

This playlist not only provided the soundtrack to my life but also the narrative.

It’s not a list of favourite Bowie songs, just a selection of tracks from each studio album, not always the ones you might know…

My heart broke the day Bowie died… took a long time to get beyond it, same as with John Lennon, and all the irreplaceable hero that have dropped off the planet… but as you get older, you realise that death though inevitable is not the end. The story lives on.

Love is the answer, music is the key to understanding that.

love to all
