My Birthday pressie from Wendy and Martin was a visit to the Ballet. It was tonight at the Hawkes Bay Opera House in Hastings. Wendy drove and we met a friend there. I had not been in the building before. I can truthfully say that I have never enjoyed a ballet performance more than this one (and I've seen a few in my time). The emotions and interpretation of the music was absolutely breathtaking. I could have openly wept during the representation of Arvo Pärt's Spiegel im Spieiel. The fun, enthusiasm and electricity between the dancers was a joy to behold. What an absolutely fabulous present.
