Ahmadi Singers, Orchestra and Pirates of Penzance

Woooo Hooooooooo Al Ahmadi Singers and Orchestra! I love Gilbert and Sullivan so much, I might have to buy tickets for all three nights! The Gala includes a dinner, and the following two nights do not, but the singing will be great all three evenings, I have been promised.

The last time I saw Pirates of Penzance was at the Qatar Academy, and the Emir’s son was the hero. 😉 He did it with a lot of panache.

Pirates of Penzance! See you there!

  3. Fun to peruse your blog, Xpat! (I did a couple xpat stints with my dh too… but w/o nearly your panache, I’m afraid.)

    I found you first via your August posting of the essay, “The Invisible Mother”, which everywhere online is attributed to an invisible author. Someone sent this piece to me today too and I am so interested in both the piece, the author, and all that “invisibleness” that I blogged about it myself today. (I think I may have found out the author’s name, too) Anyway, I would be very grateful if you would visit and comment!

    God Bless,

    (would love to know your whole story someday. I’ll have to bookmark and come back…)

  4. Baroque, Pirates of Penzance is one of several musical – theatre pieces written by Gilbert and Sullivan. The words are often sung so fast that it is hard to even understand them, but they are very very funny. Gilbert and Sullivan make fun of “poo-bahs” people with grand illusions about themselves.

    Give it a try. It should be a delightful evening. Hope to see you there!

    DiiGMaaa! Are you back? Woooo Hooooo, DiiGMaa!

    I’ve also bookmarked your blog, Almostgotit. We DO seem to have a lot in common, including fundraising.

  5. I wonder if a dishdasha would be appropriate for the black tie gala.

  6. Dishdasha would be de rigeur, GE&B! And if the evening is cool, one of those gilt trimmed bisht that look so elegant. There were many dishdasha(s) (is the plural of dishdadha “dishdasha” or “dishdashas?”) present at the last concert.

  8. Are you from here, NerdyNomad? Have you been here before? Are you expat? All those factors make a difference. If you are returning from college, you may find it both wonderful to be back, and suffocating not to be on your own anymore. There are many nationalities in the Ahmadi Singers and Orchestra, and no matter who you are, you will have a good time there.

  10. You just heard, Kaileena! / Olorin! You can still buy the tickets – call the number above. You might even be able to buy them at the door, I don’t know. It is going to be a very fun evening.
