Myrtha goes to the mall

Recommended Posts

DNB flash mob to promote performances of Giselle in Beijing. Kind of fun seeing Wilis in everything from high heels to army boots.

What ballet should be -- accessible and public, and in a variety of footwear!

It's one thing to be convincing as Myrtha when the stage is full of fog and the lights are low -- it's another challenge to do the same thing in a brightly lit mall wearing jeans and a striped t-shirt!

And after such a stern and implacable performance, her smile at the end of the video was so very sweet.

This was great fun to watch.

Thank you!

sandik, I agree; and it is always a bit of a surprise to see just how very young most of the dancers actually are. Onstage they can be anything at all and ageless; offstage they are mostly unpretentious, young and sweet.

Mostly. :)
