Storms fail to stop PIAF ballet event

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Your Favourite Things -

STORMS lead­ing up to the open­ing night of Ballet at the Quarry meant tech­ni­cal re­hearsals were can­celled but the open­ing event for the Perth In­ter­na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val went off with­out a hitch – as far as the au­di­ence could see – last Fri­day.

WA Ballet artis­tic direc­tor Aure­lien Scan­nella said the team had a tough week in the “Aussie weather”.

He said it was also im­por­tant to see his wife Sandy Delasalle on stage dur­ing the evening.

“Two years ago she left ev­ery­thing for me, so this was a present for you and to thank you,” he said.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Steven Roth also promised guests that Zip Zap Zoom would be as big as The Gi­ants PIAF event.
