Happy New Year from Hatstand

New Year, new chocolate

New Year, new chocolate

No sooner has the last scrap of Christmas pud finally departed from the fridge, than New Year is upon us! Time for more eating, partying – and work!

Actually, Hatstand Opera are having a break this year from our usual job of performing either on New Year’s Eve (and battling the traffic pouring into London afterwards), or singing on New Year’s Day (when, shall we say, not every head is as clear as it might be!). Instead, we’re busy preparing Vocal Vices for its 2009 tour.

Kirsty is finalising the script, aided by a very welcome Xmas present of Russell T Davies’ book “The Writer’s Tale”. (If you want more info, here’s the blurb from Amazon.)

Toni is designing and making the additional costumes and props for the show, including some rather surprising sources for non-perishable food. (More on that in a later blog.)

Baritone Bryan is busy creating special arrangements of some key items, including a rather natty version of “Busy Doin’ Nothing” , which clearly, he isn’t, if you see what I mean!

We hope to entertain you all with performances of Vocal Vices in 2009!
