Frivolity, Performance

There’s an air of excitement Amongst most cultured of Spain Centred around a little hamlet On the Andalusian Plain. They are arriving by the plane load, Helicopter, and even limousine For the opening performance of An event never ever before seen. It’d the Ballerina, late of Barnsley And her dance partner the Toreador Who, after months of rehearsal Are now ready to take the floor. Every seat has been pre-sold, Every planned performance full, For the much awaited Ballet Sugar Plum Fairy Meets the Bull The costumes are a mixture Of Tutus and Suits of Light, The music is traditional except During the Finale Bull Fight, When the orchestra fades down As though heard from afar To be quickly replaced by Massed Flamenco guitar. The reviews have been amazing From the international press Invited to a short preview In full costume and dress. Charles the Third and His Consort Have just entered through the doors, We leave as the curtain rises to Thunderous, rapturous applause.

So glad you invited us to their latest performance. Was really excited to see them dance again and surprised to see the king and his lady attend in Spain. Loved it Terry. Thank you.

Thanks Wendy - it was obviously a biog risk for them but thankfully it paid off.
