The best of the pieces I have read so far about this story:

Ballet now has Becks appeal . .
By Liam Rudden for The Scotsman

WHEN Posh and Becks graced a box at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden for the Royal Ballet’s latest triple bill - Scenes de Ballet, Winter Dreams and Sinfonietta with music by Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and Janacek - more than a few highbrow eyebrows were raised.

Then when they were followed the week after by Sven-Goran Eriksson and girlfriend Nancy Dell’Olio, it appeared as if a new trend had been born. Could ballet be the new football?

While the answer to that is a definite no - according to the dancers, anyway, as footballers just aren’t fit enough - something strange is definitely happening in British culture. For along with sportsmen attending classical dance events, the roughest bit of East End rough, Phil Mitchell has been seen having a quiet night in with his girlfriend listening to Madame Butterfly. It was no wonder the director chose this moment to cut to the familiar drums of the soap opera tune. Mitchell in cultured moment shocker? Cue credits.
