Go Gothic!

Gothic in all it's entirety is currently trending in Northern Ireland. I know, not the place that immediately comes to mind when you think Gothic, but seriously keep an eye on our little country.

Sleeping Beauty Ballet, currently touring the UK, choreographed and directed by Matthew Bourne is presently performing at the majestic Grand Opera House in Belfast City.
It is a Gothic phantasmal, rich in sumptuous costumes, dramatic stage sets and eerie storyline. The performance is riveting, humorous, dark and romantic.
The colour palette and decorative surfaces are truly stimulating. Inspiration is everywhere.

 *Further Evidence:
Announced today in the press, $100 million Hollywood movie based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, will be shot in Northern Ireland. Filming begins early May. Ruggedly handsome Javier Bardem takes the lead in this Gothic production.....
