apollo Posted November 28, 2012 Share Posted November 28, 2012 I'm a 33 year old male, just discovering the pleasure of ballet. Last winter, I was watching the Nutcracker performances from around the world on PBS I think, culminating in the NYCB's live opening night telecast. Got me to attend a suburban rendition of the same that year. Not to be mean, but after watching the best in the world, its kind of like going from HD to an old VHS tape. Fortunately I live just outside Manhattan and decided why not watch people at their best. I started this fall season with a 5th ring seat for Black and White. I was mesmerized by the lightness of step. Around the same time I reserved for myself and a date to be named later to much better seats for the Nutcracker this past weekend. And wow....this could become a very expensive habit. While I have no technical knowledge of ballet as I suspect most of you do, I'm sure I'll become more opinionated as time goes by. For now I enjoy it on a very instinctive level. Quote Link to comment
