The legendary Shelley von Strunckel started following me on Twitter today.

And somehow her awesome prediculatory powers have flowed my way across the internets. Suddenly I can see stuff even Shelley can't see. Like what's in the stars for Covent Garden next season. Or rather, what stars are will be in Covent Garden.

So here are my ~mystical~ predictions:
