Sunflora Musicals, Operas and Choirs

... or the singing thread I guess?

I figure there's enough of us to use this and I couldn't see a dedicated thread in my cursory early morning look through.

Basically if they sing in it and it's performed either live or on the screen it's probably ok.

And I mostly created it just to put this up. It's Sweeney Todd live from the Lincoln Theatre with ridiculously epic people like Emma Thompson in it. You absolutely must watch this if you have two and a half hours to have something on in the background. It's actually done properly as opposed to the Johnny Depp film.

If we mated, the mix of English and Irish would be too volatile, we'd risk creating some Welsh hybrid monster.

Their arrangements are occasionally a touch too slow for my tastes.

This is the point in time when I gush about bare: a pop opera. Set in a Catholic boarding schooll, bare follows Jason and Peter, two young boys who are in love. This is probably my favourite musical, even over Wicked and Legally Blonde and I want everyone to know about it.

Yeah, it is safe for work. Though I would really suggest watching one of the versions of the musical uploaded to youtube.

Meh? It's fine, not quite as generic as Wicked but getting there. Good message tackles some important issues but so do most musicals. I can see why it's appealing but it has nothing to make it stand out for me.

Just caught the end of the "100 Great Musicals" on some shitty Freeview Channel. Their number one? Grease. Fucking GREASE. I am fucking DONE.

It is objectively certain that Grease is a better musical than anything Rodgers & Hammerstein or Andrew Lloyd Webber were able to come up with. And don't even get me started on the Les Miserables renaissance. With such timeless tunes as "Grease Lightning" and "You're The One That I Want" and a story that is as significant to teenage girls' transition to womanhood as it is inspirational, Grease really can't be touched by anything that has come since.

I genuinely cannot tell if you are being serious here.

"Always be willing to change who you are for the sake of the one you love." The film's message has been foundational in the transition from girlhood to womanhood for over three decades' worth of young American women.

I have been putting This in the background a lot lately. It's the concert edition of Les miserables. Basically I really like the singing in this.

It might also help Loki understand what I meant with prisoner 24601 when doing that bounty hunt in Guild wars.

The other night, Valentines Day to be exact, I went to see Wicked with my best gal pals. It was amazing, Jemma Rix and Suzie Mathers absolutely killed it as Elpheba and Glinda and the set design was just phenomenal.
