A Royal Opera House envelope sailed through our letter box yesterday morning with my name on it. Inside were two Stalls Circle tickets for the matinée performance of Swan Lake on Saturday 13 October 2012. I now have nearly four months to look forward to seeing my favourite ballet performed at Covent Garden.The lead roles will be danced by Marianela Núñez and her husband Thiago Soares – you can see them perform the Black Swan Coda on You Tube here.
Growing up in Italy I fell in love with this ballet and the magic of ballet in general, when I first saw the DVD performance of Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle performing at La Scala in Milan. Here is another YouTube link if you are a fan of the fouettes. Prisca
