Going to the ballet


And be sure to accent the first syllable … it’s BA-llet, folks.  Yes, tonight we went to go see La Fille mal gardée at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.  I was so excited!  The facility is gorgeous, with a lovely deck overlooking Covent Garden. The theatre itself is luxurious. I was hoping the Queen would come (it is her birthday today, after all), but no such luck. The Royal Box was empty.  But the dancing was delightful. This is described as one of the best ballets to take newbies too, so I was hoping that Alex might enjoy it also.
