On Tuesday evening we set off in heavy rain for the Birmingham Hippodrome to see Connie Fisher in The ‘Sound of Music’.
It was absolutely delightful.. right from the opening scene which were the nuns singing to the very last ‘Goodnight’ song sung by the Von Trapp family before they left to escape the Nazis. It was so beautiful and the singing so wonderful I felt quite emotional. The children were fantastic and sang with real enthusiasm.
And Connie Fisher was wow!
Of course now we would like to see another live show.... it is so different to seeing films or TV.. we are booked for 'Chicago' in November, but that seems ages away. As we will be in Essex for a few days in August we are looking to see what else we could book in London. The Proms are on so perhaps an evening in the Albert Hall, a live symphony can be amazing or even an opera at the ENO. My grand daughter has never seen Phantom of the Opera so I would like to try and book this and take her.. with my house in Essex available for us we can stay there and travel to London to see it. I said she must see it as her second name is Christine!!
