Music to my ears

09Jun06

Culturally, there's probably no place in the world that comes close to London. Musicals, plays, museums, galleries, concerts.. the list goes on and on. The street performers themselves are brilliant enough to front any set in Singapore. Diversity is the name of the game, with acts like Guns n' Roses (at the Hammersmith Apollo) to the London Symphony Orchestra (at the Barbican) all playing just last night.

I've been trying my best to soak in all the art and architecture that surrounds me – just a few shots of the places i've been to so far:

The beautiful British Museum (colonising bastards!)

A grand trilogy of musicals

Since work beckons tomorrow, i'll save my musical reviews for next time. Suffice to say Les Miserables never ever fails to disappoint, and the Producers was pleasantly good. The Phantom of the Opera was mediocre, largely due to an inept lead Christine (the understudy was playing the role when I caught it!).

Total amount spent on musicals so far: £80, and worth every single cent.

I'll be trying to grab last minute cheap tickets for Billy Elliot tomorrow, so i'll be crossing my fingers!
