    finger pointing fairy?

    Why dose the violente fairy (the one in red) have her index fingers pointed in Paris Opera's Sleeping Beauty? I know she is the fairy of passion but what dose the outstretched fingers have to do with it? Dose anyone like this, I though is was very distracting and a bit awkward.

    Wendy Whelan -- Into The Future

    I saw Wendy perform both After the Rain and another Christopher Wheeldon piece called This Bitter Earth last year. But, It wasn't the Restless Creature program, her contemporary pieces were sandwiched in by a few more classical ballets, all danced by N.Y.C.B. dancers. She was the obvious star of the night, and wore only soft ballet shoes with no tights. It was truly very beautiful she seemed completely at ease. Some time after the performance, I found a New Yorker article that talked about her turning down the part of the Sugar Plum Fairy multiple times because she thought she wasn't pretty enough. This sort of broke my heart at the time but I'm glad she discovered her style at the end of her career and got to share it with us.
