Ballet, music and NIGHT OWLS…

I’M BACK! And with me comes my first Night Owls show for the year.
There’s a great line-up for tomorrow night (not that I’m biased or anything), so tune in if you can!

So when is it? MIDNIGHT, JAN 29/30th (i.e. tomorrow), 3MBS 103.5 FM Classically Melbourne See the bottom of this post for a list of pieces to be aired.

If you’re a ballet-lover, mark FEBRUARY 12th, 8pm in your diary right now. I’m hosting a 2-hour dance special on ‘The Ballets Russes’ on 3MBS, which marks the beginning of a monthly series on dance on the channel. It’s the only one I know of currently gracing the air waves in Victoria, so it’s worth checking out. See this post in Dance Informa Magazine for more info. Go on. Do it. You know you want to. Oh yeah, and tell your friends! 🙂

Speaking of Dance Informa, the next edition is coming out soon, so look out for interviews by yours truly with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Artistic Director Gary Harris, RNZB choreographer Andrew Simmons and our own Lucy Guerin.
Hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
