Mike Batt's The Hunting Of The Snark is a brilliant piece of work
28 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Mike Batt's Hunting Of The Snark is a brilliant piece of work and this version which was performed for charity has Justin Hayward in the role of the "butcher" and Billy Connolly as the "bellman". I saw this when it was televised many years ago now,and I can't believe it's never come out on video or DVD, I'm just glad I taped it at the time although the copy I have is rather the worse for wear now. The Hunting of The Snark is a nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll which has been turned into an operetta by Mike Batt, The Albert Hall was used for the venue and the rest of the cast included Julian Lenon, Dennise Williams, Roger Daltry, Midge Ure and Captain Sensible.
