Tomorrow is the first of December and I am looking forward to open the first little pocket from Denmark...
Demain est le premier décembre et je suis pressée d'ouvrir la première petite pochette en provenance du Danemark...

...warm thanks to you, my Dear Choup', for this beautiful Christmas calendar!
...un grand merci à toi, ma chère Choup', pour ce mangnifique calendrier de l'Avent!

Paris sera toujours Paris

When Lux meets Cph in Paris

Nous avons arpenté les pavés de Paris, découvert Uniqlo...

...même DJ Pepelz était à Paris ce week-end là (paraît-il qu'il est à Lux de temps à autre)... quoi attaquer la semaine avec le sourire.

Vitrine surprise

(vu rue Adolphe Fischer, à Luxembourg)
L'affichette m'a fait sourire.
La première fois, j'ai été un peu rapide et ai cru lire "ce ne sont pas des G.S.M.", un peu à la façon de "ceci n'est pas une pipe", de Magritte.

3xBoléro, by the Göteborg Ballet, this is what I attended to, last Saturday, at the Grand Théâtre of Luxembourg.

But let's come back a bit before that...

In September, when the cultural calendar was finally launched, I browsed through it with delight and curiousity.
I put 3xBoléro on my list of things to attend to. Be aware, guys: when there is only one perfomance night, you'd better book your ticket in advance...which I had not done...

And that's how you find yourself queuing, on the very day. Worse, you are told to come back10 minutes before the show "just in case". You tell yourself that being on a third position on the waiting list is not so, there were 45 minutes to kill before the show...

Hopefully, there is the "Brasserie Théâtre" which may soften your waiting. After one glass of white Porto or white wine, it felt a lot easier to beg for a last minute ticket. Standing back, the uncertainty added to the excitation of the evening. When, at last, some places were finally sold to the last minutes spectators, electricity was in the air...and that's how I got tickets, in a burst of enthusiasm!

As states the website, 3xBoléro "is a collection of three dance and musical variations based on Maurice Ravel's classic work Boléro". "Walking mad", "Orelob" and "Episod17" are three distinct pieces, though all with a similar nucleus that is the Boléro. Each could have its own qualification; "Walking mad": philosophical, "Orelob": hypnotic (and also maybe the most impenatrable), and "Episod17": definitely amusing. The first and the third were my favorite.

That was an interesting evening and am sure there'll be some other, at the Grand Théâtre...
