My first visit was reluctant. I thought the orchestra wouldn’t be loud enough and well, there’d be men wearing tights — but I was in tears by the end of the first act…
… Music from the big ballets has only endured because it is brilliant pop music. Amazing tunes — my three-year old daughter gets them. And she loves the dancing. Orchestras are huge engines capable of wringing intense emotions from an audience but ballet adds a visual dimension to the music.
Of course, the dancers are the stars of the show. They are like Premier League footballers, the best of the best of the best…
… At the ballet you get to leave life behind and step into something magical for the evening — and it’s cheaper than watching Bon Jovi hacking through Livin’ On A Prayer at the O2.
The only times I cry are at weddings and the ballet.
