1457703_705648616113421_1395050244_nWonderful anniversary party last night with the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, g celebrating fifteen years with old friends and new, artists from all over the province and supporters of every stripe. Thanks  so much to all who attended for celebrating with us.

 

Still tickets available for tonight’s Unspun Theatre’s The Tin Drum – reviews are coming in confirming it is a solid piece of theatre, so get your coat and hat and off you go. If you were thinking of going next week – you can’t. It closes the 14th so best get on that.

 

On the topic of art, this is a great video –  The Science of Opera with Stephen Fry and Alan Davies. 
What does great art do to our bodies?
In an exciting world first, The Science of Opera with Stephen Fry and Alan Davies saw a team of medical scientists from UCL discovering what happens inside us when we go to the opera.

Opera lover Stephen Fry took his friend, Royal Opera virgin and QI panellist Alan Davies, to the Royal Opera House. They were hooked up with the latest medical gadgetry to record the physical effects on their bodies of watching Verdi’s political masterpiece Simon Boccanegra.

It’s long – 44 minutes so you may have to watch in pieces, or find 44 minutes, but it’s wonderful.
