This blog entry comes to everyone from my dressing room. I’m sitting here, in a quiet basement. The only thing I can hear is the faint sound of music coming from Chris Sellars’ dressing room next door. Pretty soon the hallway will be filled with crazy people (dancers) trying to frantically warm up and get ready for the show (we’re actually pretty relaxed here).
I hope everyone can come see this slick haired, spicy ballet. The one thing this show has that you don’t often see in a ballet is attitude (and a lot of fans). I love the confidence and flare the Spanish style of dance brings to ballet. Anna Marie also choreographed an intense and complex flamenco/rhythmic section the men perform without the help of the orchestra. Very cool … easily one of my favorite parts of the ballet. Anyway, it’s time for my transformation into Don Quixote! See everyone on stage.
I figured I would post a few more pictures I took last week.
