Nutcracker – a Christmas ballet

My first real ballet! How perfect to start with the Nutcracker by the Australian Ballet at the Opera House.

And in the lead up to Christmas, could it be anymore Christmassy?

I’ve watched it several times as a child on the TV. Now I have seen it in real life.

Beautiful bodies and amazing dancing with fantastic music.

Before the performance, we had a light lunch and engaged in people watching at the Quay. Crowds of people enjoying the warm, but not stifling, weather. Summer passionfruit cocktail of course.

And an interval cocktail – a special brew just for the Nutcracker. Sugar plum cocktail with Persian fairy floss.
