Swan Lake

Posted by laura on Feb 27 2009 | Awesome, Fun

Well as it turned out, the SFB didn’t need my help last night after all. They didn’t even need Amy’s help, and she knows the Pas de Quatre, for crying out loud. Sigh, maybe next time. I’ve wanted to see Swan Lake since I was a little girl, and it was everything I hoped for, save for the fact that Mum couldn’t go with me. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Pas de Quatre, here’s an ABT version for your reference.

And here’s a great parody you should watch as well from Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo.

Those guys just kill me. 

Since I didn’t end up getting to wear my new ballet slippers, I guess it’s a good thing I wore these instead:

Oh yeah, fellow babies! I went for broke and wore these with my red velvet swing coat. Amy had one of the best lines of all time when she looked at them and said, “If I had those shoes, I’d invent reasons to wear them. Did they come with a babysitter?”
