I have never, ever been to the ballet. This makes me want to go, though.
I haven't had the chance to see it and clips like this just make me keener .It must have been marvellous !
Lovely...thanks for the clip
I've wanted to see it since seeing Billy Elliot...and the male dancer who plays Billy at 25.... what strength and grace..... what hard work and sacrifice they put in to becoming the best at what they do. Amazing....
How fantastic! I would love to see this.
My friend was there last night, too. Looks fab.
I'd love to see it! I've only seen a bit of it on TV and thought.... Wow!
Goodness, am I the only one that thought it was a bit scary? Lady swans - pretty. Chap swans - not so sure. Impressive. But a bit sinister. I'm only judging by your clip, though.
Isabelle, I'll send you the synopsis or whatever it's called, of Matthew Bourne's adaptation - the swans are definitely big, muscular and forceful, a million miles away from dainty little women in tutus! And that's the appeal.......
Gives the blokes a chance to show they do more than prop up the ladies! I hope it comes here, I'd love to see it.
Yes Rachel, that's how I like my swans! Seriously though, it looks amazing.
Well, I happen to think the men captured the REAL essence of swans. Have you ever been rushed by an aggressive swan? They can be bloody nasty, and they don't tiptoe around and look delicate, either.The men capture the angle of the wings, the way swans walk, the look of the beak (using their hands), and the dark marks around the eyes are spot-on.I definitely came away with more of an impression of real swans from this clip than I ever have from watching the girlies tippy-toe around.
It's coming to Norwich soon - can't wait!
