Hello! I'm a ballet fan who has liked ballet since I was little, but who has only been able to start attending live productions in the past few years. So far I have only seen 5 productions live, but I'm excited to see more each year! I live in the Detroit area, and thankfully we've been getting at least one professional story ballet per year as part of the Michigan Opera House season. We get a lot of contemporary companies coming in as well, and there's a local youth company that puts on 1 full narrative ballet each year (well in addition to The Nutcracker). My first live production was the Houston Ballet's "Giselle" which opened up a new world for me, since I felt I finally "got" ballet after seeing a full production on stage.
