Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar 2017
The window at 44 Whitlam Street is a colourful homage to The Nutcracker ballet, much-loved and performed at this festive time of year.
My daughter and I had a delightful evening out together recently, when there was a live screening of the ballet, performed by the Royal Ballet Company from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden (see HERE for a glimpse of it) . We sat in the cosy surroundings of Hebden Bridge's Picture House, with a drink, and enjoyed the spectacle as much as if we'd actually been there. I love the Tchaikovsky score, and know it well enough from the past that my brain can supplement the little that my poor hearing these days picks up. It was wonderful.
