I finished the day at the Rambert Dance Company's spectacular performance at the Leeds Grand Theatre...

"People with goals succeed because they know where they're going."

The evening was part of the Eternal Light Tour 2009 and involved three short works; Eternal Light, Hush and Infinity and it was a brilliant evening of outstanding modern ballet. Eternal Light was danced to Howard Goodall's 'Eternal Light: A Requiem' which was sung by the Leeds University Liturgical Choir accompanied by the London Musici Orchestra and the whole thing was simply fantastic! Hush was a quirky fun ballet danced to some wonderful music by Bobby McFerrin and Yo-Yo Ma. Infinity was accompanied by a more modern score but showed the real strength and precision needed to dance modern ballet.

It was an evening to remember demonstrating the very best of modern ballet with a superb cast supported by a brilliant young choir and orchestra. If you get a chance go and see it!
