Last night Helen’s choir – Some Voices – performed Romeo and Juliet at the Troxy in Limehouse. It was a superb show – really atmospheric and the music was excellent!
The show was based on Baz Luhrmann’s version of Romeo and Juliet. The audience was divided into the Montagues and the Capulets. The Montagues were wearing Hawaiian shirts – surf-casual dress. The Capulets were wearing red and black, with a more formal Spanish gangster look. We filed in to the Troxy in different queues depending on whether we were Capulets or Montagues.
The choir sung songs based on the movie and there were actors and dancers performing key scenes. It was a true spectacle!
