Are there going to be future shows on the themes "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash" or "Rum, Bum and Concertina"?

You must be thinking of Peter Grimes - that's opera!

Haven't Aldburgh Festival just done it? And on the shingle shore too.

sigh... would love to attend, but no chance this year. Maybe they'll make some CDs or DVDs for future fundraising.

Did make it to the relaunching of the Charles W Morgan, so 2013 isn't a complete washout... LOL

How about Topic releasing Valiant Sailor on CD!?! It is waaaay overdue.
