Another reason to love Edinburgh – Ballet

Just back from seeing Cinderella, by the Scottish Ballet. Lovely performance: 50 people on stage, well choroegraphed, and Prince Charming was excellent: Not Nureyev, but still a very fit prince! And good performances by many of the backing cast. Plus a 30 piece orchestra to deliver Prokofiev’s delightful score. And all of that 100 yards from our restaurant! Magnificent.

Add to that the performance by Germany’s “Theater Titanik” in George St on the night before new Year’s eve, the pagan fires on Calton hill the night before, and the history boys live before that… well. It is just very pleasant. And that’s not to mention lectures by Joseph Stiglitz, Tom Devine, Antonin Scalia… hard to beat.
