A Cracking ballet December 08th 2011

It just wouldn’t be Christmas without seeing a ballet and what better event to go to than the Gala First Night of the English National Ballet’s amazing production of The Nutcracker…

Finding myself sitting in between John Talbot who does a terrific job as Chairman of the Ballet and Natasha Kaplinski, their Ambassador I couldn’t have been happier - John was suave and dashing and Natasha looked simply gorgeous…we had a good chance to chat about future charity projects together. The Nutcracker was sublime, completely exquisite!  The Grande Pas de Deux was amazing…. The “lifts” were fabulous and everyone cheered and whooped as these two magnificent dancers took their well earned calls.It was a perfect, contemporary and stunning version of the classical ballet!
