  •  how thrilling and wonderful (4+ / 0-)

    that you saw this in person. i love the ballet music as well.

    love this ballet. i did see it in person, tho unfortunately, did not see mr. simkin as above (did see him in romeo and juliet in in a bit part playing benvolio with the ABT). the character, don quixote, has a very minor part in the ballet, kind of stands around on the side, unlike the musical.

    •  You should see it on skates! (4+ / 0-)

      John Curry had a wonderful version. Alexei Urmanov's wasn't bad. Mark Mitchell's was elegance in action.

      It crops up in figure skating at every level, in every discipline (except ice dance, which is supposed to be "ballroom, not ballet"). Just about every other season somebody digs up the old chestnut and tries to do something with it.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
