I am in London again... it has been one of those weeks.

Our visit had been planned for ages and we were going to see Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake... it was at Sadler's Wells for six weeks and it finished this weekend. We've seen it twice before but everytime we go it is a revelation... partly because new dancers bring something special to the main parts but largely because it is probably the best piece of dance theatre I have ever seen.... and of course the music is incredible! The production is best known for the little bit at the end of the 'Billy Elliott' film where Billy plays the lead role in the ballet or more commonly for the male swans. It's a funny, moving and incredibly powerful ballet and everytime I see it I simply want to see it again. This time the Prince was fantastic but the whole thing was magic. If you ever get the chance to go, go.
