One of the best parts of the wedding day was the waltz,&nbsp; Brudevalsen or Bridal Waltz, at the dinner ceremony. It was written by Niels Gade for the 1854 Ballet,&nbsp; A Folk Tale, which is about a nobleman who falls in love with a girl who was brought&nbsp; up by trolls. Anyway, it is a well-known waltz. And af this wedding as at the wedding of Joachim and Alexandra, the guests are placed into a heart around the dance floor. Then the bride and groom come out and while they are dancing, the guests slowly move closer and closer to the couple until they mess up or can not dance.


To hear a sample of this waltz, go to

I love that waltz! Thanks for the link Dennism! :flower: [/b][/quote]
You´re welcome. I am glad you like it.

Saudi Imans perhaps but they are only a small part of the 1 billion strong that makes up the Muslim world community. And in sheer numbers, a minor one. Most Muslims and non-Muslims realize the gem that was Al-Andalus, Granada, Cordoba in world history and we´d be not too wrong to have such a time when the 3 monotheistic religions co-mingled and lived in relative harmony and created wonderful works of art, philosophy and architecture in this world again.
That has to be the most percipient post I have had the pleasure of reading. Thank you very much Dennism, you just made my day.

That&#39;s a pretty ugly history, and Saudi Imams have not been shy in preaching their desire for Andalusia to return to Muslim control.

Agreed.
I did quite a bit of research on Islamic Spain for a paper I wrote about two years ago, couldn&#39;t believe that a society like that could exist at a time when the rest of Europe was languishing in the dark ages.
It was no utopia but in many ways more civilized and tolerant than many of the societies that exist today, both in the west and the east.

But thats beside the point, I am looking forward to seeing the members of middle eastern royalty at the Spanish wedding next week.
I wonder who&#39;ll be attending from the Jordanian royal family. It is a pretty high profile wedding so Im hoping to see Rania there, as well as Lalla Salma

Can anyone give me as much information about the composer, the piece, the play, or even another clip of it? I positively fell in love with it.
A little bit about the ballet.

http://www.kgl-teater.dk/dkt2002/bournonvi...n/folkesagn.htm

http://www.danceinsider.com/vignettes/v0926.html

To see photos from the production go to

http://www.kgl-teater.dk/dkt2002/Presserum...d_folkesagn.htm

The photos when maximized are huge. I saved one to my hard drive and it was 2 mgs.

"Queen´s Margrethe next major artistic project was the scenography for the production of August Bournonville&#39;s 1854 ballet Et Folkesagn (A Folk Tale) performed at The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen in 1991."

She also did the scenography for the production mentioned above in the links.

Some short bios on these pages of Niels Gade

http://www.dacapo-records.dk/?page=artist&id=1413&k=1

http://www.wqxr.com/cgi-bin/iowa/cla/learn...tml?record=3465

Also he was appointed kapellmeister to the Danish Royal court in 1876 and was eventually made Commander of the Order of Daneborg.



A full recording of the ballet can be bought

does anyone know the address where they will be living or the address of the grooms parents?
They will be living in Frederik d. VIII&#39;s Palæ, Amalienborg, Copenhagen and Kancelli huset, Fredensborg Slot, Fredensborg. And Gråsten Slot in the south of Jutland where the late Queen Ingrid used to gather the entire family for summer holidays has been given to the Crown Prince, so they might spend their summers there. The grooms parents (HM the Queen and HRH the Prince Consort) live in Christian d. IX&#39;s Palæ, Amalienborg, Copenhagen and Fredensborg Slot, Fredensborg. (+ Chateau Caix in France and Marselisborg Slot in Århus)

I thought she looked stunning. I thought her wedding dress was elegant but I didn&#39;t especially like the skirt. I would&#39;ve liked to see a bit of a simpler skirt. My jaw dropped when I saw the train. I absolutely loved it. It was of a perfect length for a princess&#39; dress.

I loved her veil and especially her earrings. I also liked the fact that she didn&#39;t go overboard with the makeup.

So two thumbs up for Mary and her dress&#33; :woot:

Maryland... I was thinking you were talking about Australia there for a minute (one newspaper here said that some Danes are calling Australia Maryland).

Its really surprising reading the opinions about the dress. I absolutely loved the folds of the skirt and the veil over her hair (big bun and all&#33... and I thought the top half was nice but not as nice as the bottom half. I also thought that the train was nice, but not as nice as the veil.

But wow&#33; the colour&#33;&#33; Is everyone at least agreed that the colour was very very nice?

I liked the dress very much, it was just such a sight to see her walk down the aisle, she looked so beautiful in it.

Just thought I would point something I came across by coincidence. I noticed that Mary started waving her bouquet after she left the church, and I thought this was a mistake, and that maybe she forgot that she should wave with her free hand. But it seems that Queen Ingrid also did the same on her wedding day&#33; You can see this in the following images.

Also note that the lace veil that Queen Ingrid is wearing is the exact same one that Mary wore on her wedding day.

Prince Nikolai was in the wedding with his cousin Richard von Pfeil, son of Frederik&#39;s cousin Alexandra of Berleberg and her husband Friedrich von Pfeil. There are some Polfoto pictures of this in this thread.

Not sure where Felix was. Probably at home since he&#39;s too young to have participated in the wedding and may have been fussy and restless to attend the wedding.

That picture of the detail of the tiara captured Mary at one of her many lovely moments. What a nice picture of her profile&#33; :flower:

That really is a coincidence, because it really looked as if she forgot to "change hands" :P

Tassie&#39;s Danes Party On

Members of Tasmania&#39;s Danish community and others gathered yesterday for Hobart&#39;s last big celebration of the Danish royal wedding. About 100 guests gathered in the Hotel Grand Chancellor&#39;s Cove Restaurant for a buffet lunch. Hotel executive sous chef Roger Ryder said the food yesterday included pickled herrings, traditional salads, frikadeller (a pork and beef dish), traditional Danish wedding cake and apple cider cake, cherry cake and, naturally, Danish pastries.

Erna Eskildsen, of Bagdad, said the wedding had lived up to expectations and it was nice to see Crown Prince Frederik show the first tear in the church. "I think he looked really nervous," she said. Ms Eskildsen expected more business, particularly tourism, to flow to Tasmania as a result of the wedding. "I know there is a lot of interest from the Danish people to come down," she said. "Everybody wants to know about Tasmania." Her husband, Tommy, said the Tasmanian Government had not done enough to mark the wedding. "She [Crown Princess Mary] is Tasmanian and so why didn&#39;t the Government do more?" Mr Eskildsen said.

Svend Madsen, of New Town, said the wedding met his expectations and he also thought it was good to see Frederik show the first tear. Erik Madsen, of Blackmans Bay, described the wedding as fantastic for the Danish and for Tasmanians but was also disappointed by the State Government&#39;s efforts to mark the wedding. Michele Forsberg, of West Hobart, said Crown Princess Mary looked very elegant. Meanwhile, Liberal senator Guy Barnett urged the Hobart City Council and the State Government to explore sister city status with Copenhagen because of the natural development of a close relationship between Tasmania and the Danish city.

Senator Barnett said: "There is no reason why this international relationship can&#39;t be extended to other centres such as Launceston, Devonport and Burnie with regional centres in Denmark. "We should grasp with both hands this rare opportunity to further cement our emotional, historic and economic ties with Europe." Hobart Lord Mayor Rob Valentine said that at the suggestion of Ald Eric Hayes, the council had asked for a report considering what opportunities there may be for a sister city relationship. Local Government Minister Jim Cox said the Government would not tell councils what to do about sister cities.

It&#39;s quite amazing to think that people in Australia with ties to Denmark mark the occasion with a celebration of their own. I think it is when you see something special from your homeland, you get a little homesick and would like to participate. Very nice of them
