The Paris Opera Ballet...

Our young lady is a very lucky one! She was given the most wonderful opportunity by her Aunt and Uncle, to go and see the Paris Opera Ballet! Today. As far as I know, this ballet company is the oldest and longest running Ballet company in the world and they only choose one city, in the world, outside Paris, to visit, once a year. Brisbane, Queensland, is this years recipient! Yay!!

The tickets are very hard to come by (and really, REALLY, expensive!) with 30% of ticket sales going to those flying into Brissy from overseas and around the country. Tahlia's gift was for her ninth birthday, in May.


She has been excited about this amazing event since the beginning of May...planning everything from how her hair will look, to what she might like to wear! Also as part of her birthday gift, Mark and I decided she could choose a new outfit. She had decided on the colours pink/purple and black well before we found the dress.... (Do you know how hard that combination was to come by! LOL!!)....



.... and it had to be suitable for such a momentous occasion! This is what we found. She loved the detail of the tulle over the pink satin.

And what could be better than wearing little ballet flats to go to the ballet! Now all she had to do was wait and try not to get too overwhelmed.

I will update and post more photos later. Hopefully they will be from outside the theatre.
