A couple of weeks ago, one of my favorite jewelry stores, Lagos, located in Rittenhouse Square, was promoting the last series performance by the Pennsylvania Ballet, Jewels. They were sponsoring the ballet preformance. Customers could meet and greet with ballerina, Yuka Iseda, and browse the wonderful selection of jewelry offered by Lagos. There was a contest as well and two lucky winners would receive free tickets to Jewels and be VIP guests of Lagos opening night. As luck would have it, I won the tickets!
Opening night of Jewels finally arrived and I couldn’t have been more excited. My fiancé and I arrived at the Academy of Music an hour or so before the performance and made our way to the Ormandy Room for prosecco and macarons. The Ormandy room used to be the dressing room of legendary conductor, Eugene Ormandy. It was beautiful and so elegant. There was a fireplace and on either side, there were bookcases filled with incredible memorabilia of the Pennsylvania Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra. There were old photographs, autographed conductor batons, autographed ballerina slippers and so forth.
Other VIP guests and members of the Lagos staff soon arrived as well. It was a very enjoyable meeting and talking with everyone. What a wonderful way to spend some time before the ballet. Soon it was time to make our way to our seats to enjoy the incredible performance. Jewels was only being preformed from May 10-13. I hope you were able to see it. It was wonderful! The dancing and costumes were simply breathtaking.
I want to thank Lagos again for hosting such an incredible evening. I can’t think of a more perfect sponsor for this ballet. I’ve said this before but please make sure you stop by their store and check out the incredible and beautiful jewelry they have on display. And please go to the ballet! The Pennsylvania Ballet is one of the best in the country. You won’t regret visiting either one!
