Before beginning the performance, the director announced, in a quavery voice, that Mme Alonso was present at the opera house. All the audience rose with a great cheer, and gave her a long standing ovation. She looked even more beautiful than June, wearing a black spangled outfit with the black sparkling headscarf, and two long strands of pearls. Everything shined beautifully and brightly under a light in the dark opera house, just like her herself in the ballet history. And, after seeing T&V, I think her sparkling outfit which seemed quite fit for T&V, a work created for her and the last program of tonight, might be her kind response to tonight's celebration - simply, my imagination, but, anyway, was in good harmony with other dancers' glittering tiaras/outfits on stage.
I was so happy to be able to see and give a standing ovation to her again when I came to know her more.
