An eve with Burt Bacharach

It was a magnificent eve spent at Sydney Opera house last night.
We caught the act by "An evening with Burt Bacharach & The Sydney Symphony".

It was one of the best performance I have attended for a long time now! We had a box office seat and so we had a really unobstructed view of the whole performance too.

Most people in Singapore (assuming here) are probably not familiar with the name "Burt Bacharach" but I am pretty certain we all know his best hits such as those by Dusty Spring field and Dionne Warwick. Without doubt, he is one of the best composer of modern times and hence last night had been an absolute blast! The 2 hours whizzed past like nothing and with the magnificent Sydney Symphony and the 3 singers belting out the hits, the audience was totally captivated and transported back to times for some.

Although there were a couple of hits I havent heard off, but most of the times, it was like having someone playing my fav songs LIVE in concert such as his greatest hits like "Alfie", "The look of Love", "I say a little Prayer" "Raindrops keep falling on my head", "That's what friends are for", "I'll never fall in love again" etc etc...

There were simply too many great songs to list them all! The male singer that he had was especially sensational!!! All is all, a A$160 well spent! Oh what a night to rem!
