Sleeping Beauty

We saw the most delightful performance last night.  Jörgen ballet’s version of Sleeping Beauty at the Rebecca Cohn.  There’s nothing like the sound of pointe shoes on a stage floor.  I’m always amazed by the strength and fortitude it takes to perform all of those scenes and make it look easy.  The pit orchestra was awesome, with the sound of the bassoon and the harp.  Lovely!

  1. We were there last night! They do make it look so easy, don’t they? And then you are reminded that it isn’t when you see their bulging muscles.
    I always wish I could see the orchestra at the same time. When watching the dancers, you forget to really listen to the different instruments, and when trying to pick out the instruments, you forget to pay attention the the dancers. 🙂
