just a preemptive strike in case anyone wants to give me any grief.
last saturday night i put on my suit, squeezed by bad foot into my dress shoes and went to the ballet – the royal new zealand ballet at the st james theater – and it was great.
i’ve never been to the ballet before so i have nothing to compare it to, but everything about it was fabulous. the dancing and choreography were impressive and the story was told very well. by far the standout was the set and costume design by tracy grant lord.
it really is too bad that no one else will get to see this – it was stunning.
yet another benefit of living in the city and having it so easy to get out to events like this.
the only issue was that there seemed to be a problem with the audio – i couldn’t hear a word of the dialog…
