    I saw the ballet streamed live tonight from Paris. I thought it was amazing — superb in every way possible–the dancers, costumes, sets, lighting and the score was truly wonderful. I live in Norwich England and to be able to see this wonderful production at Cinema City tonight was a real privelege.
