My mother-in-law Mary invited my hubby and I to the NYC ballet today. It was my first "real" ballet. I've seen little local productions with children etc . . . But never an official ballet.
I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.
The Ballet was at Lincoln Center - what an amazing theater. Our seats were on the 2nd tier but it felt like we were looking out of an airplane and there were 3 tiers over our heads. hah
This is the write up about the ballet. They can explain it far better than I could
Beginning with a curtain welcome marking the occasion, this program will feature two of Balanchine’s most popular ballets. Mirroring Gershwin’s brassy melodies, Who Cares? is full of jazzy, syncopated rhythms and balmy, romantic duets. Union Jack concludes the performance with a spectacle of 74 dancers— a dazzling tour de force including sailors, music-hall humor, kilts, and clans.
It was really beautiful. I loved the beautiful colorful ballet outfits. I could not believe the size of the female dancers. They all looked like clones. So tiny, so graceful, so petite, so precise.
I would go again, it truly was enjoyable. Hubby liked the second 1/2 better than the first which was much more marching and performing than dancing.
I just love the ballet slippers. So beautiful . . .
Hubby said he'd buy me a tutu if I really want one - some how on this 52 year old full figured women I don't think it would have the same affect hah
But I could sport me a pair of those pink ballet slippers ! We'll just have to see . . .
