La Bayadere Review

Draft 1

Tonight I had the wonderful opportunity to see La Bayadere at the Royal Opera House.1 It was odd.

Apparently in ballet, unlike theatre, you’re supposed to read what’s going to happen ahead of time. I did not. I was confused.

I did like the second act, though. There were a couple of dances with the whole chorus that were super fun and made nice lines and shapes.

Overall, while not a fan of opera, at least I have another piece in the music to theatrical story spectrum. It begins with symphony, then sound painting, then ballet, opera, musical, then non musical theatre. Yay.
