When asked what my favourite event was this year it was hard to make a decision as I have had so many highlights and met so many wonderful interesting people in the 9 months since joining Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. But one that stands out is our recent Behind the Scenes tour of Scottish Ballet at their home in the Tramway.
Hosted by our Commercial Director Susan Mckay we heard from Christopher Hampson, CEO and Artistic Director over canapés and a glass of wine. We were then treated to a sneak peek of the live rehearsal of Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker. We then proceeded to be taken on a tour with Scottish Ballet’s Kirsten and Yvonne who showed us the wardrobe store room, the ballet shoe room, which was a personal favourite, and the fitting room. We ended the evening with a chance to network with other attendees who I think would I agree were in awe of what we had just seen.
This event beautifully tied in with our breakfast networking event Behind the Scenes at Theatre Royal the following week. I am really excited to marry the two and see the performance at the Theatre Royal in January.
