I usually try to take in a Ballet once a year. Not always during the christmas season of course but my favourite memory by far was watching The Nutcracker performed by the NewYork City ballet.
Leaving Lincoln Center and coming out into the dark after the show to find fine falling petals of snow was truly unforgettable.
It made everyone so happy! The quiet, combined joy of a crowd after a flawless, soaringly beautiful evening.
It was nature's encore and the best way to end the night.
Strolling back to bed enveloped by light, cold kisses of snowflakes and the evocative music still playing its track in my mind.
