I just watched the Allegro production of "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe."
It is really more of an Easter theme than Christmas, but it is set in the Bleak Mid Winter. I don't know much about the origin of the music but it was perfect. Some sounded like Donovan, some like Holst's Planets and, yes, some like the African jungle music of the Lion King.
The real stars were the dancers. The White Witch was awesome, much in the spirit of Maleficent.
Aslan was a stunningly talented young woman. I love the idea of a female deity.
Mr. Tumnus was also a young lady much like Mary Martin as Peter Pan.
Lucy, Susan Edmund and Peter were brilliant.
It had a cast of many dancers from very young to sorta young.
To live is to dance.
