Fun in the Festival Club
After each performance in the G&S Festival, the evening's entertainment continues in the Festival Club with a couple of cabaret performances. As is usual, the group who performed that night in the opera house took the second cabaret today; but after all that was finished, and nearly everyone had gone home, the few of us who hung around were treated to another bit of fun - well, just a bit of fiddling around, really... okay, awful pun. One man and his violin entertained us practically until we were all kicked out at the end of the day. He's amazing - plays all sorts of pieces, weaves bits together (there was one long section where he kept slipping into "Tie me kangaroo down, sport" - fun stuff!), and can make the violin do extraordinary things. I hope he's there again tomorrow, this was a good evening's crazily ridiculous fun!
