Have you ever watched The Princess Bride? Well let me tell you about it. While homesick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him the story of a farmboy-turned-pirate who encounters numerous obstacles, enemies and allies in his quest to be reunited with his true love.
It’s been two years and it was time to leave the house.
If you have time on Saturday March 5th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., get into the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and watch the Princess Bride in Concert. It was glorious, relaxing, funny and just what my body, mind and soul needed after a tough work week. The symphony orchestra performs Mark Knopfler’s unforgettable score live to picture!
Tonight’s performance wasn’t too busy, all the health and safety precautions were adhered too and we were even able to grab a drink or two and snacks while watching The Princess Bride. It was time to get off the Netflix train for the weekend and get stuck into some wonderful music.
The film is timeless and a perfect respite from the heaviness of the last few years. The Toronto Symphony Orchestra makes us feel at home and cared for whenever we catch performances at the wonderful Roy Thomson Hall.
Grab your tickets fast as tomorrow are the last two performances and they are sure to sell out. Tell me what you think!
