oh yeah...could have told you about this myself!<P>somehow when it happens on your doorstep, it doesn't so much seem like news, as just a good funny story...<P>anyway, read all about it. 2 nights ago in perth, western australia, american music director for the australian ballet, charles barker, proposed marriage to AB principal dancer, west australian miranda coney, ONSTAGE, out loud!, right there in public, after the final curtain call - the audience rose to its feet applauding. coney was dumbstruck - but accepted later.....<BR> <A HREF="http://www.smh.com.au:80/news/0010/26/text/national4.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.smh.com.au:80/news/0010/26/text/national4.html</A>

I think the cutest part about this whole thing is the line - all the ballet girls were crying and the guys were asking "what's going on?" Men are the same all over the world, it seems..........

This has to be an epic under-statement:<P>"I guess I have a bit of a theatrical bone in my body," Barker said. <P>The article continues:<P>'Barker had talked to Coney at interval about her pointe shoes, her pirouettes and the tempo for her solo, but she had no idea of what was to come.'<P>Well! I would have guessed what he meant straight away.<P>Basheva said:<P>'Men are the same all over the world, it seems..........'<P>Hell, it's true - and it makes me so proud!
