As very regular readers will be aware we like to produce very old fashioned pictures features -  so popular long ago (and we are reliable informed becoming popular once again in certain "celebrity" magazines). So, for those that missed the performance in Dublin on Sunday - either in the theater or at home - or who are getting ready to go tonight or Sunday, or simply would like to see parts of the production again - in high resolution - then we present the following (If you click on any of the images it will bring up a full screen, sideways scrolling gallery.  We have also included an audio documentary from 2007 about the "extreme" effects that Tristan seems to have on some people.
