ON June 15 we attended the Odissi Dance Recital at the Opera House – an absolutely brilliant performance by both the local dance school (Geetanjali) and the international dance group from India. It is wonderful to be treated and exposed to this kind of performance and of such a high standard – our local women did us proud and I will treasure this memory for a long time.
The applause was deafening and the standing ovation at the end was truly well deserved.
Roland Williams, who at short notice stood in for the mayor, did a good job of delivering the vote of thanks and reinforcing the message of unity and social cohesion as espoused by Rabindranath Tagore.
We are grateful that Port Elizabeth is not being bypassed for such inspiring cultural events. We look forward to attending and supporting many more events in the future.
