Hello from Detroit!

Recommended Posts

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.

Welcome to Ballet Alert! orangerose!

 

I hope you'll write about the visiting ballet company (or companies) you see.

It looks like you've got an event coming up in your community, the Detroit Dance City Festival.  From the website, it doesn't seem to be exclusively ballet, but you might check it out anyway, and see the variety in your home town.

 Thank you! I'll definitely be posting about productions I see from now on. :)

Greetings, orangerose and welcome to Ballet Alert!  Ah, Giselle - what a great introduction to live ballet!  Giselle is one of my absolute favorite ballets and ballet heroines (and a favorite to sooooo many others here on BA :clapping:) - you will find many interesting and intelligent opinions and comments on this gem of a ballet.   I hope to hear more from you soon.
