Good night out at “3 Musketeers” by Northern Ballet at Theatre Royal. Some beautiful and excellent dancing, fast paced action and romance story, stunningly beautiful costumes and great sets. Orchestra was great too and truly complemented the choreography.
Next week’s plan is Puccini’s Tosca.

Recent reading has been a biography on the first female cabinet minister of a European (excluding russia) country: Constance Markievicz of Ireland who played a big part in the Easter uprising and in subsequent events. A wonderful colourful dynamic rebel personally and politically.
Also enjoyed was “Ramayana” by Daljit Nagra. a delightful warm story from ancient India and “Secret Scriptures” by Sebastian Barry which is a magical woven tale from ireland over several generations of past lives being remembered: rare for me to find a book that refuses to be put down.
