A little knowledge
Posted 12 June 2006 - 09:40 PM
As a parent of a dance student, I have sat through many Nutcracker performances. I wonder what it will be like to see a Nutcracker years from now when I am no longer caught up in the whole ballet school drama of it all. It would be nice to get the magic back again.

I guess my response is that it is possible experience do both, with the eye -- and mind -- panning in and out like a movie camera. Sometimes, when things are just right, you can focus on both simultaneously. Like the dancer, the audience should never rest for too long.
Do you get lost in looking at the trees so closely that you can miss the splendor of the forest?
The key variable for me is the time (and, alas, $$$$ ) to see multiple performances of ballets, preferably with different casts.
