Mary, a bitter young orphan girl from India, is brought to England to live with her uncle on the Yorkshire Moors.
Nice response in return of this query with genuine arguments and describing the whole thing concerning that.

It’d be fair to say that a living in The Secret Garden has been incubating in my brain ever since I was 9. I saw the secateur pair at Brook Farm General Store last month, but didn’t feel like spending $50 for the set when I only wanted one. This is crazy … I just talked about Mary Lennox and gardening and The Secret Garden yesterday on my blog.
I had a thing for France Hodgson Burnett books growing up (and I admit I still do) and I was thrilled to discover that one of her homes in the States was in Knoxville, TN, only an hour from where I spent my teenage years.
My daughters and I have been completely obsessed with the secret garden since we watched it in 1993 we designed a board game for a school project, we bought the soundtrack, my oldest daughter pick some of the lovely music for her short program for a figure skating competition I could go on and on.
When I was a little girl, one day I was at my grandmothers when had just bought the 93 version of the movie.

The mosaics by local school children were lovely and all artists had a successful day one way or another. A PERFECT CHILDREN’S STORY FOR OPERA, BEAUTIFULLY STAGED…BUT IS IT READY FOR CHILDREN? The condensed storytelling is beautifully complemented by Nolan Gasser’s fluid score, which still needs work in the arena of melodic invention, but eventually bursts forth with a lush bouquet of harmonies in the final scenes in the blooming garden.
Directed by Jose Maria Condemi, the story came to life on a spacious stage below a soaring set which towered over the actors – an effective device in underscoring how Mary must have felt to find herself so tragically transported into a dark old mansion filled with mystery. The Secret Garden fits beautifully into the format and style of opera and I greatly enjoyed seeing it as such.
Upon encountering numerous problems in adjusting to the rigid, lonely, and unfamiliar life of her uncle’s mansion, she gradually befriends Dicken and her cousin Colin. It was the first book I ever read that I absolutely couldn’t put down, devouring every word, and then, a bizarre taped from the tv version that came out in the late 1980s.
My fire escape is a tangle of terra cotta pots and I’ve developed a serious house plant habit. No matter how many times I read the book, I still wanted to cry when I heard how Colin’s mother died and his father locked up her favorite place. I have just been through the whole back catalogue of Living Ins and it’s amazing how many of my favourite films are there that I have obsessed about at one time or other. I love to write and have always wanted to start a blog as an outlet to do so, but was always a bit timid as I’m sure many are feeling like too many people are into rap music videos and whatever else people are obsessed with these days to relate to what I find such pleasure in.
Our goal is to create a safe space where everyone (commenters, subjects of posts and moderators) feels comfortable to speak. Through a commission by the San Francisco Opera (co-presented by Cal Performances), it did, and while the opera itself still needs some tinkering for it to appeal to younger audiences, overall I was quite taken with the stunning and impressive production, which opened last weekend in its world premiere at UC Berkeley’s elegant Zellerbach Hall. Shafer shifts effortlessly from a petulant pampered child in India to an English girl filled with insatiable curiosity about the enigmatic garden, and deep compassion towards Archibald’s sickly son Colin, played by Michael Kepler Meo, who at only 14 astonishes with his ringing tenor and powerful performance. While this production proved that it is a beautiful fit for opera lovers, I wondered if the younger viewers, beautifully dressed for an afternoon at the opera along with their parents and grandparents, were offered the best vehicle for this children’s story. Together, they venture to restore the Secret Garden, into which entry had been forbidden by Mary’s uncle. The Secret Garden’s rustic charm had a radical impact on my early childhood development- the ivy stone walls, vintage seed packets, padlocks and skeleton keys.

To this day I still wear the locket, and still love watching the movie:) has anyone else found a locket?
So to stumble across this and see so many comments from girls who are as love with the Secret Garden as I am encouraged me and refreshed my soul. Please treat others the way you would like to be treated and be willing to take responsibility for the impact your words may have on others.
Ultimately, Shafer has an irrepressible spirit that embodies the life in the garden itself. A backdrop of austere walls alternates with a garden scene, at first neglected and weedy and then, under Mary’s compassionate touch, taking on hues of green and eventually bursting into bloom.
The score (confidently conducted by Sara Jobin) is not yet as magical as the trappings and the full-bodied vocals of some of the principals, with the exceptions of Sly and Harris, posed some aural challenges.
I dreamed of mail-order seeds, secret passages, tamed foxes and lost skeleton keys and unsurprisingly, I still do. When I was younger I used to see a film and daydream about it, trying to dress like characters or do my hair like them!
Disagreement, differences of opinion and heated discussion are welcome, but comments that do not seek to have a mature and constructive dialogue will not be published. Supertitles certainly helped, but I worried for children who may not have been adept at visually flicking from supertitles to stage. The Secret Garden conveys a message of hope–a message based on the powerful role of friendship in bringing about a change for the better. The set showcases the considerable creative talent of Naomie Kremer, who overlays canvas and paint with video to make a beautifully shaded, detailed, ever-shifting, shimmering landscape – aided by Christopher Maravich’s lighting design. Fortunately, the youngsters left with smiles because they were accompanied by adults eager to explain what was going on.
Please note that our team (writers, moderators and guests) deserve the same right to speak and respond as you do, and your comments may be responded to or disagreed with. These guidelines help us maintain a safe space and work toward our goal of connecting with and learning from each other.
That effect underlines and reinforces what I think of as a touching and inarguable message of the play: that life pulses even in the darkest of circumstances, just waiting for a touch of awareness to spring it forth into full health.
