2nd March. The Nutcracker ballet, De Montfort Hall

10 people had booked to see the Siberian State Ballet perform 'Nutcracker' but due to the threat of snow, only 6 of us decided to travel to Leicester. Getting there was easy. The show was excellent, although it was a very different version to the one we are most familiar with as performed annually by the Royal Ballet. This production had a slightly different version of the story, different choreography and no set changes, but relied on a back-projected screen to change the scenery. The dancers were all superb, the orchestra excellent and the set-piece tunes all very familiar. Well worth seeing. Getting home was the problem. whilst we were inside, it had snowed leaving a very slippery layer of snow over ice. The two cars slipped and slithered they way home in about 90 mins instead of the usual 30, but everyone got home safely
