‘What then was Queen Melian like,’ quoth Eriol, if thou hast seen her, O Veanne?’
‘Slender and very dark of hair,’ said she, ‘and her skin most lovely of the hue of night. If ever she sang or if ever she danced, dreams were nigh, heavy as with a strong wine, in the wild places of the world and in every lonely wood.
As she went ‘twas swift-footed, full of all solace, more beautiful than a moment in the dark trees.’
An American In Paris opens officially tonight at the Palace Theatre!
The new musical, with music and lyrics by George & Ira Gershwin and book by Craig Lucas is directed and choreographed by Chirstopher Wheeldon. The cast includes Robert Fairchild, Jill Paice, Leanne Cope, Veanne Cox, Brandon Uranowitz & Max von Essen.
