      Coppelia Ballet

      April 22, 2018 in Russia ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

      We stopped at the supermarket on the way back to get some cream to go with our blackberries and toilet paper (apparently this isn’t provided with the ‘serviced apartment’?!).

      After gobbling down some blackberries and cream (though it tasted more like Greek yoghurt to me) Eli and I set off for the ballet, leaving Heidi to the tender mercies of Uncle Mike and Auntie Kyri. Turns out she went straight to bed and slept for nearly the whole time - and they didn’t even get a dirty nappy. Some people get it easy! 😂

      The ballet was really good - probably the best we’ve seen. I liked seeing Swan Lake because it is so traditional and classical but Coppelia was much more lively and even humorous in parts. The music was really nice too.

      We messaged Mike and Kyria when we were done and they met us on the way back to the apartment. We had dinner together and then Eli, Mike and Kyria went to see the Anna Karenina musical and Heidi and I went home. I wasn’t that fussed about seeing it as I figure it would all be in Russian and I wouldn’t understand it anyhow, even knowing the story line. They had only booked this yesterday as Eli had noticed it advertised when we were walking past and was really keen to go.

      Heidi and I pottered around the apartment and now she’s snuggled in bed - she goes out like a light when she’s tired, it’s great!
