Friday February 7, 2014 / 7:30pmHamburg Ballett: Liliom
Orchestra Terrace Rows F-R -- Price C
How was your experience?
I have no words. Or, I have a lot of words that don't do any justice. The whole production was hauntingly beautiful. It never ceases to amaze me how ballet, a largely silent medium, can abruptly expose you to a such a wide range of powerful emotion. I alternately laughed and cried, within mere minutes of each other. The talent was formidable, the score comedic and agonizing and joyous, and the whole show left you full from crown to toe with a delicious feeling of exultation. I didn't walk out, I levitated.
