I’m a 50+ balletomane – or should that be Australian Balletomane? I was in the Palais Theatre on the night the company went on strike in 1981 – and I’ve still not seen The Hunchback of Notre Dame!
I do, of course, watch other companies when the opportunity presents itself. Of recent times that includes Royal New Zealand Ballet, Ballet Nacional de Cuba, the Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Staatsballett Berlin, Stuttgarter Ballett, Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris, Hamburg Ballet, and the Dancers’ Company.
My ballet-watching adventures are covered on my Instagram account, Sophoife.
Oh yes, I read French as well as English.
