Saw Swan Lake tonight at the Capitol Theatre with the Australian Ballet and Orchestra Victoria. First time I think I’ve heard an unamplified orchestra at the Capitol. (Assuming it actually was.) Wonderful stuff. The Graeme Murphy production it was, which makes an asylum and crazed dreams of the magic of the original.
Afterparty was a delight, with a huge buffet of chocolate among other things, including some chocolate miniature teacups with a white chocolate mousse inside that. Plus a showbag on the way out, although the only things of interest were a calendar and a keyring with a ballet slipper. (Which brought a smile, so I can’t complain.)
And now, to bed, to sleep quite some time.
