“Swan Lake” (2011)

This was a marvelous performance of Swan Lake by the Bolshoi Ballet in Russia, shown as a video in one of the theatres in downtown Austin, TX. While it would have been great to see this production live, the video had the advantage of giving better views of the facial expressions and costumes than a live performance usually offers. The story is fantastic and the dancers were amazing. The corp (especially the set of four swans who did a linked sequence) and the men (especially the jester) particularly impressed me, but the foreign princesses are always my favorite part of this particular ballet. The Russian princess was my favorite in this one.
