Russian Balllet

Yesterday evening my friend Prue and I travelled to Hamilton to see the Russian Ballet Company dance Swan Lake
It was wonderful the costumes were amazing and the dancers and music were fantastic.
It is just such a shame that more of these type of performances don't make it down to New Zealand, I guess if there is one thing that is lacking here it is culture of the arts in all sorts of forms.
Of course we get smattering of shows and performers of all arts...but just not enough... but with only 4 million people in the whole country it is difficult for these companies to come here, as they do not make the big money that they would in a larger populated country.

So I am thankful to get the chance, and took it with no questions asked.
