Love Lies Bleeding
I suppose Calgary is too far to go to see a ballet? Canadian choreographer, Jean Grande-Maitre, has created an epic of Elton John's life titled after Elton's song Love Lies Bleeding. You can see a video at http://www.calgarysun.com/entertainment/2010/05/06/13856051.html#/entertainment/2010/05/04/pf-13823991.html
I have been a fan of Elton John since I was 12. I'm in awe of his talent, I find his showmanship highly entertaining and I believe that much of what he has written will be considered classical music a century from now.
Apparently, the first run was a smashing success, but I'm still afraid to wait to see it; you just never know how long new productions will be around. Hmmm, I've never been to Alberta . . .
