The Russians Are Coming!

Actually, the Russians are already here. The Kirov Ballet (and orchestra) arrived yesterday for a week of performances at the Centre. If you are interested in tall, thin, flexible young women (or tall, muscular, limber men) then the NAC backstage is the place for you.

I haven’t had a lot of exposure to ballet, but I’ve really enjoyed some of the productions I’ve seen in recent years. There are so many great ballet scores, and I’d really like to actually see something like The Rite of Spring.

B and I will be going to see the Kirov on Sunday night. I’m looking forward to seeing what one of the world’s great companies does with a classic like Swan Lake.
