we had great seats that reuben secured through work; only 5 rows form the field and right next to the aisle where coaches and players walked through to get down on to the field and up to their boxes. the most unexpected part of the evening was seeing ethan stiefel and gillian murphy only a couple rows away from us! amongst the rugbyheads, i would be surprised if anyone recognised them.

now that ethan has officially taken over the royal nz ballet, i'm looking forward to seeing sleeping beauty in november to see if the company looks any different. watch an entertaining interview of ethan on the tvnz1 show sunday.
