Rating. *** (out of 5)

Credits. Various composers and artists performing their work.

Hodge-podge fundraising production. A little of it was great. Most of it was boring. Shame as these things can be excellent. Favourite numbers were the ballet dances by: Soares and Nunez (“Diamonds”), Lamb and Acosta (from Carousel), Macrae and Osipova and the number for Elisir D’Amore with Bryn Terfel in it. A nice way to give money to charity. Actually, had forgotten I had gone to this till I found the programme a couple of weeks later. That sums up what I thought of it lol – forgettable!

Maybe I’d go again if I knew in advance what the programme contained. If you didn’t go, you didn’t miss anything!

It should aim to be more like The Russian Ballet Icons at the English National Opera that happens every year. [Actually I missed it this year due to little advertising – it was amazing – I am heartbroken! *sigh*]
