a few years ago, i had a chance to visit sydney, australia. while i was there, i had the amazing experience of seeing the australian ballet perform “madame butterfly” at the sydney opera house. the most prominent feature in the sydney harbour, the building is a true piece of art in itself.
i spent many hours there, soaking in the sun and watching people pass by.
but i’ll never forget the performance i saw that night. the talent was amazing! i have season tickets to the SF Ballet and, that night, i was sitting around season ticket holders to the australian ballet. one woman told me that she had a chance to see the SF ballet once and that was an experience of a lifetime. i turned to her and said “ditto, fellow ballet friend, ditto.”
