I think the Sydney Opera House should stick to Opera rather than to Cole Porter for after a bloody lovely meal of barramundi at the Oyster Bar we sat through a rather slapstick and unfortunate first half of " Anything Goes" .
Now people may forget that in his prime The Professor was a first class tap dancer so it wasn't long before he picked up that the Opera house choreography was somewhat under par even though the musical's leading lady Caroline O'Connor looked as though she was carrying the company on her more than capable shoulders!
We left at half time with a dramatic swish, which was a shame, but the disappointment was made up by a wonderful show of acrobatics by the huge flying fox fruit bats that swooped around the towering trees of the nearby botanical gardens!
Even the Prof's Roger Moore Eyebrow was elevated at the spectacle!
We have a brunch organised with some family, who have lived out here for a year or so then some shopping and cocktails at the bloody Shangri-la hotel cocktail lounge no less with our friends Nia and George.........no wonder I think I have put on, what is commonly referred to, as the " Sydney Stone" since being here!
The view from Shagri la!
Oh tomorrow night, ( our last one in the city) we have tickets to a Schumann concerto at the Opera House which will be a fitting end to a wonderful, wonderful experience
