Serenade/Sweet Violets/DGV: danse a grande vitesse at the Royal Opera House

Last Monday it was raining non stop in London so it was not ideal to spend much time out in the open. My shelter for the day was the beautiful Royal Opera House. I was there to see the Royal Ballet's Mixed Programme: Serenade/Sweet Violets/DGV: Danse a grande vitesse. And what a programme that was!

Serenade: The Music of Tchaikovsky partnered with sublime choreography in one of George Balanchine's earliest and best-loved works. 

Sweets Violets: Murder, sexuality and art are the potent themes of Liam Scarlett's ballet inspired by Walter Sickert's paintings.

DGV: Danse a grande vitesse. Christopher Wheeldon channels the hurtling momentum of Michael Nyman's music in choreography of thrilling propulsion. 

I had an absolutely sensational day at the ballet. Captivating music and great dancing skills added up to a perfect experience of ballet beauty. 

The Restaurant area. I love the little glass box that feels like it is floating in the air
