Auld Lang Syne: 2016!

On New Years Eve we went to see ‘Phantom of the Opera’ at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Did you know that the theatre changes its name to be reflective of the gender of the current monarch? When Charles takes the throne the theatre will change its name to His Majesty’s Theatre!

What can I say about Phantom? It’s my first theatre love and was just as breathtaking as always.

I love seeing different actors take on the iconic roles and how they interpret the characters (though nothing will beat this).

We celebrated with champagne of course!

Intermission essentials.

After the bows the cast sang Auld Lang Syne with the audience (you know, the folk song that is traditionally used to bid farewell to the old year). It was really touching end to the show!

We met up with Steve and Lindsey after the show and rang in the New Year watching the fireworks on TV at my flat!

What a start to 2016!
