We had a wonderful time at the ballet last night. There were four small ballets by different choreographers, with the first three being more classical, very delightful and flirty. The dancers are well-trained with gorgeous lines and lively leaps. My five year old really loved the costumes and beautiful ballerinas.
The last one, "Earth" was one I will never forget........very dynamite and explosive...........all men, with the stage covered in rust colored sand or dirt, with the music by Apocalypitca (cello rock music covering Metallica) I literally kept saying "Wow" outloud........very different from the first three ballets, but very worthy of time on this stage.
