What a fantastic show!
14 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

We watched this concert version of the Hunting of the Snark on TV, and wish we had taped it. The music is very singable and the lyrics effortlessly capture the essence of the poem.

I remember it, 20 years later, as being a very colourful event and have been looking for a recording of it for a long time.

The haunting "Children of the Sky" sets the scene beautifully. The ensemble song "The Escapade" is full of puns and introduces each of the cast members. "The Pig Must Die" will resonate with anyone annoyed by bureaucracy! "A Delicate Combination" is musically very interesting, and nicely sets up the touching "Beaver's Lesson" of the poem. All in all, a fantastic show - I also can't believe it's never come out on DVD. I think it's time to start a petition!
