Hello everyone! Here’s just to share the audition of Lea Salonga for Miss Saigon. We saw Miss Saigon in the West End, London when it was first shown in 1989/1990. My sister was with us, we came to London from Munich and we had a memorable time. It was nice to see them, the original casts, mostly Filipino artists – Lea, Monique Wilson, Victor Laurel, etc. We saw Jonathan Pryce as he stepped out of his car before the show. We were queueing for the tickets. There was a standing ovation after the show and the stars were at the lobby afterwards. That was the time when I really felt proud of being a Filipino.
The Jantar Mantar, in Jaipur, is an astronomical observation site built in the early 18th century. It includes a set of some 20 main fixed instruments. They are monumental examples in masonry of known instruments but which in many cases have specific characteristics of their own. Designed for the observation of astronomical positions with the naked eye, they embody several architectural and instrumental innovations. This is the most significant, most comprehensive, and the best preserved of India’s historic observatories. It is an expression of the astronomical skills and cosmological concepts of the court of a scholarly prince at the end of the Mughal period.
