Sydney Opera House Babies Proms: Music For Tutus
We just had the most lovely morning playing ballerinas at the Sydney Opera House. We joined a throng of be-tutu'd little girls to listen to the Babies Proms Orchestra and dance along with two ballet dancers (male and female) as part of the Babies Proms: Music for Tutus program.
The dancers were young and lovely and performed excerpts from The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake. The kids (including a few little boys) just adored it all. Miraculously they all watched patiently during the three performances, and then sprang to their feet afterwards for a mini dance lesson, and then lined up for photos with the ballet dancers.
The Mums loved it too. I had tears in my eyes. A really lovely experience.
