carnival of the animals

We had a sublime afternoon yesterday at the Sydney Opera House, watching and listening to Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, along with cartoonist and poet Michael Leunig, perform the Carnival of the Animals. [We have the Ogden Nash version read by Nonie Hazlehurst on tape and often play it in the car - the Leunig poems are completely different, focusing on environmental destruction of and by animals in Australia.]

A big audience full of children (many of them, by the looks of it, on Christmas outings with grandparents) was astonishingly quiet during the concert. Olle and our five year old friend were very good too. Despite all adult attempts to direct their attention to the various musical instruments, it was the on-stage cartooning which really grabbed their attention. But it was Tognetti's playing which held me spellbound.

I found I there's real strawberries on the bottom these so and they have different flavors to you if you don't like strawberry there’s only a hundred calories dear games at bat 15 grams of crabs and 12 grams of protein sorry out in then these are little worse but they're not horrible their cinnamon roll Greek yogurt to pursue its ad for the 150 calories 2.5 grams of fat 20 10 grams of crabs in 11 games are pretty so it's a little worst.
