Quote from: hermes2015 on March 12, 2023, 04:35:51 AMBilly, I applaud your choice of a first ballet to see. I've seen The Firebird three times in various places and I am overwhelmed every time. Please make the effort to attend a performance. Nothing can compare with the experience of feeling the music in your gut. Speaking of Stravinsky, I've also seen The Rite of Spring a number of time as well. The weirdest was probably a performance in Amsterdam, where there was practically no set apart from creative lighting and with the dancers dressed in gym outfits. The orchestra played marvellously, though.

im a long way from any ballet cpmpannies. pittsbirgh is only 80 miles though. ill keep my eyes out

on le sacre du printemps, i dont see how any production could fail to be weird, given the subject matter

It should be on your bucket list, along with L'Oiseau De Feu.

i saw joe cocker and greaseband during my first acid trip. long, long ago in a galaxy far away.

even then, he'd been around the block more than i ever would. whatever he was, joe cocker was 100 percent a legend. he was like joplin-- if he had any energy left at the end of a performance, it wasn't through lack of trying.

what a life.

Joan Baez has such an awesome voice.

It's such fun to discover composers and performers one has never heard before. This is Hania Rani, who is both composer and performer. I can't wait to to explore her work further.
