ABT at 75 Exhibit at the Met Opera


Recommended Posts

I'm usually not that excited about decorated pointe shoes, but Blahnik's version with the bobble trim is so witty. But I was really blown away by Patricia Bowman's 1940 costume for Carnaval -- that's a ballet I've yet to really see, but I'm so curious about it.

I'm shocked (hand dramatically raised to forehead). In the first paragraph of the article, the Vogue reporter identified the ermine sleeves of the prince's mother's costume as dalmatian. As if!

What fun! I mentioned this in another thread, but I have a pair of pointe shoes worn by Faye Arthurs that I purchased at SPAC. I chose them out of the 'stinky box' of ballet shoes because they are almost unworn and in beautiful shape and condition. Her feet are tiny!! I want to make some kind of sculpture out of them when I have the time and this Vogue article gives me heart to tackle the project someday!
