Baby Proms – The night before Christmas

On Saturday we went to the Sydney Opera House for Baby Proms: The Night Before Christmas. It was a super show for kids. Xavier was absolutely enthralled the entire time. Especially when they asked him to stand up and dance.

The performance mixed a dramatic telling of the classic story, with actions for the kids, and a wide array of Christmas carols. The songs ranged quite a bit, but mostly stuck to the standard song book: Up on the rooftop, Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer, Jingle Bells, Silent Night, and so on. They did, however, localize the 12 days of Christmas for the australian audience.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Twelve koalas napping,
Eleven brolgas dancing,
Ten lizards leaping,
Nine emus running,
Eight possums climbing,
Seven dingos digging,
Six crocs a snapping,
Five kangaroos,
Four lyrebirds,
Three hissing snakes,
