Good news. I have scheduled some special events into my calendar. I'm going to go out and do things...yay!! So tired of sitting around the house and doing nothing in particular (except work, of course). Tickets are now in my hands for the following two events:
First of all, A Game of Thrones exhibition. This exhibit will be at TIFF Bell Lightbox - March 9-18. It is a ticketed event but tickets are free and I've reserved mine already. Here is a snippet of what they will have on display...
Game of Thrones: The Exhibition showcases a wealth of material from HBO’s global production, including: six costumes; props symbolic of major plot twists; an assortment of weaponry, tableware and banners that illustrate the series’ distinctive Houses; gorgeous still photography from Seasons 1 and 2; and behind-the-scenes videos of the designers and craftspeople who bring Westeros to life. Among the many highlights are: the never-before-seen costume of Melisandre, a major character new to Season 2; a dragon egg; the “Hand of the King” badge and the stag crown of Robert Baratheon.
The anchor to the exhibition is the infamous Iron Throne itself. Located in the RBC Lobby at TIFF Bell Lightbox, fans and passers-by alike will have the chance to be King or Queen for a day and be photographed with the Throne.
Mel's costume...O_O...well I'm certain it will be a lovely shade of ruby red. I may literally start bawling if they have "Oathkeeper" on display. For some reason I knew they would have the Baratheon crown there. I wonder if they will have replica merchandise for sale. I am so on it.
The second event, is the Toronto Consort's production of Carmina Burana...ahhh that will be so good. Here is the excerpt from their website:
Discovered in a monastery in Austria, the original Carmina Burana is one of the most beautiful collections of medieval song, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. Songs of love, songs of springtime, drinking songs, spiritual songs and lively dance tunes all grace this anthology, attributed to the wandering scholars of the day. The Toronto Consort brings alive these fabulous glimpses of an earlier era, with voices, hurdy-gurdy, fiddle, recorder, lute and harp.
I'll let you know how both events turn out and I'll post pics of the GoT exhibit, that is, if they allow pics to be taken (aside of course from the obligatory Iron Throne pic).
