Worst idea for a new ballet

Recommended Posts

How about a political ballet? They could go through each and every law and "happenings" at the white house....congress, etc. Wouldn't that be one of the longest ballet's??? I guess to some, it might be interesting....but who would compose the music?

Or how about this, "The Arctic:A Freeze Frame Ballet in 1 Act". Where all the dancers wore blue, and simply stood there. Again, who would compose the music?

Here's one: The Life Cycles of a Bug. Going through each of the stages of a bug, and the life of a bug. Wait...didn't Gelsey Kirkland do something like that???

Emily, the bug thing is old, old as the hills. Not only did Balanchine do one on that theme in the early 1950s, but Marie Taglioni (!) had a ballet called "The Butterfly" which featured creature transformations. Of course, this was a magic butterfly, in Persia, but there still were "metamorphoses".

How about a ballet based on "I Love Lucy"?

There could be a memorable adagio based on the famous "chocolates off the conveyer belt" scene.

Of course, there would be quite a rivalry among male dancers to play the coveted role of Ricky Ricardo...character dancers could audition for the part of Fred Mertz.

Up next: A ballet based on "Three's Company"....
