Fantastic Show

Yesterday was a gorgeous winters day in the river city. DD and I had tickets to a matinee performance of the fabulous Ballet Revolucion all the way from Cuba at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex.
It was absolutely fantastic.. so vibrant and full of energy. A mix of modern and West Indian themes with exquisite balletic technique and it was wonderful to see healthy and very fit looking young women rather than thin waif like creatures that were the preferred body shape (and I can say that because DD was a tiny little thing) when my daughter was dancing. The men were also amazing. There was a live band with live singers behind them while they danced not to mention the fantastic guy who did a solo on the huge hand drums (not sure what they are called) So to cut the waffle we adored it.
DD and I decided we needed sustenance before we settled in to watch all those gorgeous bare chested men.
So hot chocolate and cake were definitely needed.
I got the blame for this decadence but DD looks so unhappy about tucking in to it.
Walking back by the river at Southbank with the city in the background.
Love my hometown....
So apparently did the sea of red shirted Brits that were teeming along the river walks and in the bars and cafe's here for the Rugby Series against the Wallabies....believe they won the first game.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend....I think a little quiet sewing might be in order.
