WHEN Islander Ania Zwolinska arrived at the ballet being staged at Jersey Opera House on Saturday she had expected an afternoon of pirouettes, plies and pas de chats.

But, the 33-year-old management account got all that and more when her boyfriend of four years Nuno Dionisio proposed in front of the stage to the sound of the production's 30-piece orchestra.

To add to the moment - which took place after the matinee performance of Sleeping Beauty by the Russian State Ballet & Opera House - the 45 ballet dancers secretly hidden in the wings then joined the happy couple on stage to celebrate their engagement.
