They are about to begin, and I was lucky to get a very comfy seat.

Act One ends. Lights come up in the house and there are shots of the auditorium and audience members leaving. Then video clips of Swan Lake. No commentary. I have to leave, but this has been fascinating. Not quite up to the level of the first telecast to the moon, but quite similar in emotional effect to the fuzzy black and white imagery of Hopalong Cassidy galloping on a white horse against a arroyo seco background, the very first image that showed up when we got our first television (huge box, miniscule screen) many many years ago.
Thanks, dachnitsa, for the link.
Once the technology is better, won't this be a wonderful way to connect the world of ballet audiences, not to mention other cultural events.

Unfortunately we have (non-ballet-goer) evening guests who will arrive in a few minutes ... hope you are going to enjoy the rest of the performance!
Greetings from Moscow to all of you!
