Aladdin

Birthday treat yesterday evening...at my request! Just a kid at heart you see! So much noise, loud music, dancing and laughter ... and plenty of opportunity to join in! A local production involving talented local people of all ages. Performing arts are highly valued in Welsh culture. There was an uproar from parents of 13 year olds a few years ago. The schools (under pressure to offer a balanced curriculum by the relevant authorities) wouldn't allow children to choose music AND art AND dance (ETC, you get the idea?) for the final years of study.
What a vibrant shot - so much joy and motion!
Really like this.

Looks like a grand performance

Looks like fun. Unfortunately the arts and music seem to be being squeezed out for academic subjects! It’s a shame for you if you aren’t academic but very artistic

Looks to be a fine way to celebrate and a great picture of the scene to remember it by. Came out really well.

And contravening the "NO PHOTO" injunction is priceless!

@domenicododaro It is that modern irritating 'public yet private' space. As it is owned by the University I guess they are entitled to prohibit photography. But it is motivated by money.. There are the professionals in there and they don't want competition (As If!!) If you are in a public space it is OK to photograph you. In a private space I need the permission of the owners. No where do I need your permission, apparently. The problems/dilemmas thrown up by the democratisation of photography! In this case I knew I woukld want to publicise this among my freinds... and I had paid for a couple of tickets, so I had no trouble with my conscience. Let them send me to prison, if they dare!! :-)

Haha, if the rules were all made to be abode by, then those who applied the Fascist and Nazi Race Laws should be examples of moral rectitude... I'm on the other side of the barricade.

Good counter example. Re barricades, me too. I'll be disappointed if I don't fall at a barricade!

It looks like performers have a great time. I think you too.
