Swan Lake...

Last night - as part of my 65th birthday celebrations - Linda and I visited the Theatre Royal, Norwich for the Northern Ballet's production of Swan Lake.

Set at the start of the 20th Century, the NB's version of this timeless classic differed considerably from the traditional version, particularly in its introduction of a homo-erotic theme: but it was a marvellous retelling of the old Russian fairy tale which Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed. The full orchestra were incredible as was the entire corps de ballet. With supper at the Cote Brasserie, what a fantastic climax to my birthday celebrations!

Today begins a two-day birding-fest: watch this space!
