The show was amazing! Yskynna, the aerial dance company and the singers combined to tell the story of a Cornish Bal maiden and the audience loved it. Click on any photo in the gallery for a closer look.

We spent a delightful evening with the Prideaux Angels last night, a gentle promenade performance with dance, music and narration where the last scene outdoors was the beautiful Snow Globe. It runs until 28th December so if you can get to Padstow, there is a treat in store. You can get a delicious meal in the marquee afterwards too.
I love the Penryn River in all its moods and love that I sing every week with the river in view.
We can all adjust our sails!
We have been to see Ballet Rambert tonight – three wonderful dances but Ghost Dances is the best ever. We first saw the dance sometime in the 1980s and loved it then. It is a most powerful piece that didn’t disappoint tonight. If you ever get the chance to see it, please do.
From the programme.
What a splendid evening in Truro. First a wander, then dinner and the Birmingham Royal Ballet who were just wonderful, especially Frederick Ashton’s piece Momentum 11 set to Eric Satie’s Gymnopedies and then the Cathedral lit up against the dark sky.
A whole day singing and watching dance – what more could one want? And before you say ‘cake’ there was cake too! It is the launch weekend of a fabulous project called Shoreline and you will be hearing more about it! Here are just two shots of the amazing dancers followed by the poster for the weekend launch. Our singing was pretty good too! Everything we learned was an original composition by Jon Hughes and accompanied the dancers. There were many breathtaking moments and I can hardly wait for tomorrow’s session.
There seemed only one poem for today, John Masefield’s ‘ Sea Fever’, another that I learned as a child and which I had as a poster in my office for years before I retired.
