    Just wondering if any of you enjoy musicals and have a favourite (or if you can't pick just one, a shortlist)?

    Singin' In The Rain.

    I love that and all its quotable lines.^_^ Dignity, always dignity!

    Ha ha ha...sorry Phil :smile:

    I'm a great fan of Wagner's Ring Cycle and Die Walkure (the second one of four) is probably my favourite. It's about all the important things in life: love, betrayal, honour, courage, loyalty and redemption. I first saw it when I was in the middle of a major argument with my late father and the stand-off between Brunhilde and Wotan rather mirrors that situation.

    I'm afraid I'm not an opera buff and have only ever been to see a handful. The Merry Widow pleases me.

    Edit: Technically an operetta rather than opera.

    Not a big fan of musicals however Chicago was very impressive. We saw The Book Of Mormon earlier this year and it was shocking but also hilarious. Some may find it offensive but it did a fantastic job of exposing bigotry and ignorance amongst many.

    Oh yes, Spamalot :laugh:

    By far the silliest musical ever, and lovingly ripped off from the original film. Spamalot.
