The Doll Song

What a delightful production is this 1951 version of Jacques Offenbach's opera Les Contes d'Hoffmann by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger - it is as much about dancing as it is about music.

Dorothy Bond sings Les Oiseaux Dans La Charmille (in English) while the gorgeous Moira Shearer dances.



City of Dunedin Choir will provide the choral support in the Southern Sinfonia's production of this song at the 2010 AMI Last Night of the Proms on 19 February in the Dunedin Town Hall.

Any chance of getting the Selwyn Ballet to dance at the Proms?

Good idea! Where would we find room on stage for them? I'm amazed at how the troupe has grown...
