I was pretty excited when coming to London
that i'm going to get a chance to see some amazing ballets here.
I enthusiastically booked a ticket to
see the Royal Ballets production of Mayerling
with Alina Cojocaru dancing.
A dancer who i have watched on youtube a lot
but never actually seen live.
Turns out that they (alina and her partner johan) announced a couple of days
before the performance that they were leaving the company.
I was so excited to be there for that special evening.
even though my seat was the cheapest in the theatre which meant i could only
actually see half the performance because of the restricted viewing.
(it made it a bit tricky to follow the plot!)
this article describes their last performance pretty well
i've never seen so many flowers on a stage in my life!!!
