Swan Lake was the first ballet I ever saw and I was gobsmacked by the beauty of it and subsequently went to several more. Mind you, it wasn't quite like the version here. I wonder what the afficionados have to say about it?
I'm afraid that classical ballet leaves me cold. All those tutus. I went with LOML to see Bayadere a few weeks back at the ROH and I swear, if I never get to see a piece of classical ballet before I die then I shall die a happy man.
