Would you like to vote in our Short Story Competition final?
Couldn't have been me, I'm afraid - I guess I have a doppelganger with better eyesight! I haven't been to Wiltshire in donkey's years, and I haven't even been in Britain for the last 2.5 weeks.

Hello, whats up and what are you reading these days?
Hey! Short Story thread!
Would you like to vote in our Short Story Competition?
? Why did you ask about the film 'Stand By Me'.
Sorry, Patrick, I didn't see your reply in the main Forum until later! I'm a Friend of WNO so I'm always glad to hear of people supporting them. Have you ever got over to Cardiff, the new Millennium Centre (NOT the Sports Stadium!)? - it's a magnificent venue, WNO sometimes do big productions there that they don't/can't take out on tour. I saw Queen of Spades there last year and Meistersingers von Nuremburg last June - both amazing.
I'm changing art form next week however - I'm going to see Swan Lake danced by the Mariinsky company in St Petersburg. They are the old Kirov ballet co - the Bolshoi's big rivals. I've never seen a live ballet on stage before, lots of operas but never a ballet. I nearly bit their hand off when the tour company wrote with the offer of a ticket! I shall be in St Petersburg for a week, seeing the palaces and galleries, my first trip to Russia leaving Thursday. I'm getting really excited now!
Swansea Grand - my 'local' - where are you seeing it? It's a new opera for me, can't say I know anything from it, except the overture.
