As some of you may have gleened from my profile, I love ballet and opera, and indeed all stage and theatre in general. Ballet though is top of my list. The highlight so far for me was to see the Royal Ballet perform Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House, and in the best seats, well if you are going to do it, do it, as my grandmother used to say!
Tonight, the suit and evening coat will be dusted off once more, mother of pearl cufflinks polished, and hip flask charged, for I am taking Amanda and her mother to see the English National Ballet perform Rudolph Nureyev's version of Romeo & Juliet at the Mayflower Theatre. It's 8am in the morning and I am already getting buzzy and excited. More tea I think. And not an easy task to perform when one is leaping across the kitchen to the cd player blaring out Sergei Prokofievs 'Montagues and Capulets' I can tell you!
