Good morning everyone!
So I know this is a little delayed, but I had such a lovely night last night I thought it deserved its own post.
As you know, we were lucky enough to get tickets to see Swan Lake at the Sydney Opera House for last night. It was 100% just as incredible as you are undoubtedly imagining.
We got all dressed up, and I got to wear one of the dresses I had bought in Melbourne! I really love it.
The ballet itself was incredible!! The costumes were amazing, and all of the dancers were so talented. The crowd cheered as the black swan did many, many perfectly executed pirouettes in Act III. It made me miss ballet so much.
My other favourite part was all the swan maidens in Act II. They were so graceful, and swift on their toes!
They did the traditional ending, which is the kind of sad one, where the Prince and Odette are together in death.
Afterwards we went to a restaurant up the road called Meat and Wine Co, which was Australian style. We shared bruschetta to start:
For dessert I had house made hazelnut ice cream, and it was so creamy and amazing. The perfect finish to a wonderful last day in Oz!
I’ll talk to you when I’m there.
