the ballet

I had the opportunity to see the Russian National Ballet Theatre company dance the full-length in four acts Swan Lake.
I wish that I could describe how much this affected me. I was transported by the performance. I forgot where I was for an evening and floated, whirled, and soared. Those amazing artists make an activity which must be incredibly difficult look as easy as blowing a feather about.
I held my moleskin sketchbook in my lap and tried to capture something of the line, but it was really happening way too fast for me.
