As you all know after weeks of intense preparation, learning steps, costume fittings and stage rehearsals, last night we premiered our new ballet ''Rosalinde' choreographed by Ronald Hynd.
The show went down a storm, with a fabulous audience who clearly seemed to appreciate the whole piece.
Always after a premiere, the whole theatre gathers for a champagne buffet. It's an opportunity for the dancers, orchestra, ballet staff, choreographers, costume designers and stage technicians to come together after the weeks of all the hard work that goes into staging a ballet.
I, unusually, left my choosing of an outfit until the very last minute...... I always feel at such an occasion that I would like something a bit special to wear.
Having not had the time to shop of late, in my break before the performance I dashed to Zara to buy something. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted, but of course like always when I have an idea of what I want I can never find it! So returning home empty handed, I raided my wardrobe and found this dress that I last remember wearing three years ago (this is when I'm happy that I hold on to things!) With my black dinner jacket and my beloved Chanel bag, I was happy with the outcome and so was my bank balance!!!!!
