Films & Shows

As for music, I have a varied and unashamed taste for films and shows. I prefer science fiction, and I am probably happier watching “young adult” films like Hunger Games or Maze Runner than the deep challenging films like “I am still Alice”. I also like comedies and I really do not find vampires interesting as a theme and stay away from all that. Horror films bore me.

I have been going to musicals, mainly in London, since the early 80’s and I do not think I have ever walked home feeling disappointed. The song and dance standard in the West-end is incredible, and even though not all stories can stand alone as masterpieces, the performances can typically carry themselves. I am easily moved to tears, and have cried to shows like “Chess” (my all-time favourite), “Tell me on a Sunday” and Les Miserables.

We occasionally attend opera in Copenhagen with a preference for Mozart, Wagner and Verdi but never ballet. Every year as a family tradition, we attend the Crazy Christmas Cabaret in Tivoli, an English language Danish version of a British pantomime show.
