The Nutcracker

So last week I took Orla to see “The Nutcracker“, at The New York City Ballet.This is getting to be an annual event for us, as I had taken her last year too. This year’s show was equally spectacular, and Orla enjoyed it just as much, her favourite scene being the fight against the mice in the first half.

The second half was even more gorgeously breathtaking, and we just loved it. I must confess that I was taken by surprise when, watching the mesmerising ‘Arabian Coffee’ (danced by Teresa Reichlen), Orla turned to me and whispered

Dad, you should have married her instead of Mommy. I have no idea where that came from !
