"Nobody had ever heard of a mouse and a rat creating a show and performing infront of an audience. Yet I was obsessed with the idea. In the following months, I continued towork on my dancing... all the while watching the various trades that participate in creating a show..."
"Luca thought he was being discreet, but I knew very well that he attended as many singing classes and rehearsals as possible to work on his beautiful voice. Even better hidden than he was, I was watching him observing the class...and taking part in it!"
"I had been dancing late into the night, while Luca sang the melody for me. Afterwards, exhausted, we had both hidden inside the piano to rest for a bit, except we had fallen asleep and the dance class was about to start!"
"If the magician Rothbart can turn a Princess into a swan, he must be able to turn a mouse like me into a ballerina... I absolutely must find this Rothbart! Mister magician, are you there?"
"At night, in my dreams, I do perfect pirouettes and also, I jump so high that it looks like I’m flying away, so the whole room applauds me. I'm really very pretty in my tutu. And I dance so well that it makes people want to smile and cry at the same time. What about you, do you ever dream?"
"Everyone always talks of the “little rats” of the Opera; the pupils of the Paris Opera Ballet school. But I had decided that for the first time, there would be a “little mouse” of the Opera... and it would be me!"
