Virginia Woolf in Sadler's Wells - 19 January, 1933
from The diary of Virginia Woolf, page 144:
Then came Plomer & Marjorie [Strachey] to dine; & we went to Sadler's Wells & saw Pomona with Nessa's designs - dresses, scenery - all very pale & bright - I mean Fra Angelico against a background of Cassis - but dear (said to be from dieu) knows I can't keep my wits at ballet; can't throw a ring round so many wild horses - music, dancing, decoration: & so hop on my perch, & merely make parrot noises of appreciation.
