As you’ve probably guessed by now, we’re huge fans of this ballet. We’ve posted on it numerous times, and there is going to be a live stream of it this December (see this post for details). BUT, if you live in New York City and act quickly you can see it live Sept 9-14, 2014 at the Lincoln Center. Don’t be late!
I can’t believe we’re going to miss this, hopefully some of our DC-area Carrollians will get to go. The Arts Council of Fairfax County and Virginia Friend is hosting a performance of the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra. As their website puts it “A family-friendly evening in Strawberry Park combining orchestra and film, based on the 1915 silent movie adaptation, this hour-long program includes musical interludes between sections of the film as well as underscoring of the entire film with new arrangements of familiar children’s songs. Bring your own blanket and picnic.”
Sep 6, 2014 – 6:00 PM – Strawberry Park
For all US citizens who are travelling to Toronto for our fabulous meeting the first weekend in October, this is a reminder that despite certain similarities of speech, Canada is a foreign land and you will be required to possess a valid passport to board a plane or cross the border. If yours is not valid, better hurry to get one. “Routine” applications take 4 to 6 weeks; the pricier “Expedited” 3 weeks, and “Expedited at Agency” (based on need; restrictions apply) 8 business days.
The full plans for our upcoming Fall 2014 meeting in the lovely city of Toronto are now online. Read a summary on the Events page or go directly to the announcement. Check out the fun, plan your travel and lodging, and pay for things, all at one convenient location!
A series of beautiful postal covers with lovely Alice themed illustrations has recently been auctioned off by Robert A Siegel Auction Galleries.
As we mentioned back in April, the brilliant Alice ballet by Christopher Wheeldon will be streamed to movie theaters around the world on December 16. American theater locations are now available here. I urge you to see this if you can.
Otherwise known as a glass tray, these three attractive catchalls are currently available from Red Envelope, and they’re even on sale.
It certainly has been the week for t-shirts, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one this cool. An actual disappearing Cheshire Cat! Isn’t technology cool? Get yours at the Unemployed Philosophers Guild today!
Get ‘em while you can. Only 6 hours remain to get these two very nice t-shirts from qwertee.com.
