I have been going to ballet performances since I was a child growing up in France and have many memories of amazing events. This memory does stick though, it was my first experience of a Royal Albert Hall show in the round and it blew me away. The whole evening was made even more special as I shared it with a couple of friends: one who had never been to the ballet. She absolutely loved it. The other friend was one of my best friends with whom I shared many such a cultural experience. She also loved it. She sadly passed away in April last year after catching Covid and I am now so glad to have this happy memory of a very special evening.
