The Week in Entertainment

Live: The Joffrey Ballet - a mixed bag, all wonderfully done, though not all equally appealing to me at least. The Enchanted Island, a delightful pastiche of "The Tempest" plus "A Midsummer Night's Dream", thoroughly entertaining. I do love Baroque music anyway, and this had a terrific cast and amusing story attached. Sweeney Todd with Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson, in "concert" with the New York Philharmonic - wonderful.

DVD: A few episodes of a cute Australian series called Mr & Mrs Murder, about a crime-scene cleaning duo who solve the crimes they clean up after. Lots of fun.

TV: Grimm - caught up on last week's (who didn't know Monroe's dad would help them out?) and things are boding ill all around.

Read: Two collections of (mostly) Gervase Fen mystery shorts - Fen Country and Beware of the Trains.
