Lest it be lost to history, this event did happen ..... Just a single tutu on display, lots of committed dancing from some 65 dancers in a very mixed bill.
Apologies to all having issues with the stream. OMG, Mayara Magri and Matthew Ball in Carousel. Steaming. 💐 💐 💐 Am loving the gala format which shows us pieces like this that I hadn't seen before. Also reminds me of the incredible talent of the RB, who don't all get the attention they deserve, like Sarah Lamb and Ryoichi Hirano (gorgeous in Diamonds) and Akane Takada and Federico Bonelli (so moving in Swan Lake). So grateful to be watching them all.
The Gala was meticulously planned and brilliantly executed. Stunning, sumptuous, ravishing, scintillating and exhilarating from start to finish. A veritable celebration of dance. It deserved a standing ovation and I among others gave it one. I hope that it was recorded for wider viewing.
