Ballet @ большой - "вечер американской хореографии"

If I've ever hated on the ballet, my sincere apologies. Consider me a convert. I went tonight, for the first time, and was truly surprised... quite cool. Between the music from the pit (<3 strings), the girls, and the fun patterns everywhere (both musically and visually), what's not to love? :-)

There were three acts from different time periods (or so I'm told), and I loved the 1st and 3rd (old and modern). The one that was from the 1940's or 1950's or whatever I wasn't a huge fan of, but even it wasn't half bad.

I still think the opera still sounds whack, but perhaps I should give it at least one chance now, in retrospect.
