First night

What an amazing first night at the Royal Opera House! We've worked so hard on the show over the last few months and to get such a warm and wonderful audience reaction was thrilling. Thanks to everyone who worked on the show, particularly Es,Lynne, Stuart Price, Pete Gleadall, Andy Crookston, Affie, Christina, Simon, the 50 dancers, our crew and everyone at the ROH. I can't wait for tomorrow night! Love, Neil xx
