It’s been a whirlwind week at Emirates Woman HQ. Between organising shoots for our incredible December issue, preparing for the Emirates Woman Woman of the Year Awards, and searching for a suitable ball gown, we’re ready to let off some steam. And there’s plenty of opportunity to do so this weekend…
WATCHING RUSSIA’S FINEST BALLET DANCERS
We love going to the ballet, so when we heard that the famous Mariinsky Ballet Company were making their debut in Dubai this weekend, we were first in line for tickets. Originally called Kirov Ballet, the St Petersburg based company was set up in the 1740s, and are renowned for their quality dancers. A medley of famous dances from some of the best loved productions will be showcased, including our all time favourite, Swan Lake.
