Ballet brought me to The Music Hall. The Russian National Ballet. I had seen in the local newspaper the day before that they would be stopping in Portsmouth to treat those of us with a taste for international culture to a performance of Swan Lake.
"Do you want to see a ballet tomorrow?" I shouted to my husband from the computer where I had located the virtual ticket window.
"No." he answered.
"I didn't think so." I said, as I snagged the last lonely seat in a prime spot.
So I went solo. The show was stunning. I'd never seen live professional ballet before. The closest thing I'd come to it is my daughter's long ago dance recitals- watching kids with no sense of rhythm tripping over their tutus. But this was more than just dance, it was... art. Beautiful, radiant, art. The female lead was particularly remarkable. Her dancing was unbelievably effortless and natural. Talk about talent.
An enjoyable afternoon. I think I'll do it again some time soon... *flips to The Music Hall home page to see what's coming up*
