"Dance-Along Nutcracker"
   No, I'm not making this up. There's an article in Today's (15th December) Wall Street Journal about a `Dance-Along Nutcracker' , `the annual production of the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band'. Unfortunately, the Wall Street Journal can't be read on the internet unless you have a subscription, which I don't, because it costs money. So I can't tell you if this article is even available on the internet...but if you dash out to your newsagent...
Apparently, you don't have to be gay or lesbian to dance; anyone can take part, and ages range from toddlers up. And I personally was thrilled to read that you can hire an out-sized tutu for the occasion (at a reasonal cost).
There don't seem to be any `real' dancers on stage, however, and I don't think they do the whole ballet, either. Shame.
Is this an idea for the new Royal Opera House?

   What a brilliant idea. A bit like the Portsmouth Sinfonia (anyone remember them? - it was an orchestra composed along the same lines, which was as funny to listen to as it was no doubt enjoyable to play in).
