Swan Lake with the English National Ballet

Swan Lake Performed by English National Ballet at Royal Albert Hall LondonGot my culture fill on with a beautiful performance of the classic Swan Lake performed by the English National Ballet at Royal Albert Hall. Although I’ve seen numerous performances of Swan Lake by other ballet companies I just can’t seem to get enough of Tchaikovsky’s enchanting music and the flouncy white tutus (I want one!).

Carmen at the Royal Albert Hall

Royal Albert Hall LondonToday took a turn for the better when I unexpectedly received a golden ticket to attend a dress rehearsal for a performance of Carmen at the Royal Albert Hall.

I absolutely adore the music by Georges Bizet that’s featured in Carmen with my favorite being from act 2, La Fleur Que Tu M’Avais Jetée. The performance included everything from opera, murder, a bit of acrobats, stilts, and even live fire. It was all so exciting and especially to get a bit of a sneak preview! Don’t miss the opportunity to catch it while it’s on!
