Ballet at the Staatsoper

I really like the architecture in Vienna, it’s so different to anything we have at home or even in London. It’s all so grand looking. I like that I get to see the Staatsoper every day when I come to the German language course in Vienna at Deutsch Akademie. It reminds me of when my grandparents came to visit me just before Christmas. They’re the only family thus far to visit me, and they treated me to ballet as a Christmas present. We saw ‘Sylvia’ which none of us had heard of before despite being keen on ballet. It had a very complicated story line but was still breath taking, as it had a lot of pure ballet in it. In the interval we enjoyed drinks in a very beautiful grand room with chandeliers and huge windows. It was interesting to look out of them and see the street from this perspective. I hope that they visit again and hopefully treat me to more ballet!
