The Ballet pontification thread

Post  pinhedz on Sun Jan 18, 2015 11:05 am

Some would say this thread belongs in the "Dance and Performance Art" section, because ballet isn't really about the music, it's about how back in the days when guys got excited about ankles, ballet dancers showed a lot of ankle. Embarassed

Furthermore, in the movie "The Red Shoes" one pedant suggested that ballet music was the lowest form of classical music (no doubt a pinhed who liked late Beethoven quartets).

Nonetheless, I decided to start this thread in the "Classical" area (but feel free to start another one in the "Dance" section Very Happy ).

So, in an attempt to save this long-in-the tooth musical form, the Washington Ballet has decided to turn the Ichabod show into a ballet. Shocked

And the music is written by a former classical violin student that changed direction to become and alt-fiddler:

Somewhat unexpectedly, the "Sleepy Hollow" ballet is getting good reviews. Shocked

The pinhed will review it later today.

I forgot--I don't know how to review ballet.

But this is what it looked like:

That's enthralling. I wish I could see it performed.

What surprised me was that all the witches dance barefoot.

And the guys get lifted up in the air as often as the women.
