Just out of curiosity--are any of you Brits planning on attending in person or via cinema simulcast the Royal Ballet's production of Alice in Wonderland?

From Tony's link it looks like the live broadcasts to cinemas were last month so no I won't be seeing it :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Only reason I'm mentioning it is because my brother is the orchestra conductor for this production.

Really? I'm impressed. I hope the production is going well. :D

Joby Talbot, the composer, was Composer in Residence at Classic FM radio station a few years ago
