Swan Lake ballet

So a few days ago I went to Bielsko- Biala
too see Swan Lake by Russian National Ballet
together with my friend.

Yes, I am a person who take a full luggage for one day XD
Me and Rarity have really a lot in common....

I would like to write a lot about the ballet,
but it is so difficult to find proper words
(and it is not because of my poor English...
I have to admit that it is even easier, more impersonal
to write in a foreign language)...

Maybe to start with- what I did not like:
-stage was too small
-people were clapping too often.
If it comes about the second thing: 
they were supposed or even provoked to do it,
but still it was really terribly....
They were invading my fairy tale telling me 
(rather shouting!)
Hey wait, it is just the show
you can not stay there
wait just a while
and it all will be over 
and you will be made to come back to 
the world that waits for you outside!

Brutal, right?

During the first act
I was just floating in overwhelming beauty,
but as the show was going on
the thought about unavoidable end
was harder and harder to bear.

I could not stop thinking
that just a short moment divide me from the end.
If perfection exists then it can be seen in ballet.
But you can take a look at this world 
just for a moment, short moment...
and you have to prepare for the come-back.
Thank you for my friends who made this come-back easier:
spending night watching ponies <3

Here is me after the show.
Sorry for my 'I hate you world' face expression,
but this is how I felt XD

My necklace and brooch
with ballet motif.

Here is my photobook signed by dancers.
Do not ask me why it is in German XD

And for the end pearl earrings
in a rose box from my friend <3

Ticket, book and A Midsummer Night's Dream

Lately I am in a little strange state:
I feel like I need a break from buying clothes for a while.
So here is my present for Saint Nicholas Day from my grandma.
Yes, I know that it is (a little XD) too early,
but well in December tickets would be sold out...

So my ticket for The Nutcracker ballet :3

And my dream book.
Biiig history of fashion :3

To not spam with the next post
I will also write about a play 
I saw a few days ago:
A Midsummer Night's Dream.

As you probably know it was based on Shakespeare's play, 
but well... it was performed as the part of new forms' festival 
so it was not made in a traditional way. 
I will skip explaining details about differences' with the book, 
because I do not see any point in it. 
I have a little different remarks to state. 
It was performed by Italian group (Teatro Gioco Vita & Imperfect Dancers)
in the form of shadow theater with Mendelssohn music.
The form was really beautiful and full of potential. 
Usually I say that beautiful forms are enough. Now I can add: no, not always. 
Specially... for this kind of play it was definitely not enough.

A Midsummer Night's Dream.. Dream, right? 
This play was visually beautiful, 
but please tell me where is the atmosphere of the dream? 
Shadows were such a good chance to create a masterpiece, but they were not a guaranty for it.
Choreography destroyed it all. Dance was too heavy, too close to the ground. 
All evanescence was gone. 
 Just the nice wrapping was left. 
Shakespeare's genius disappeared somewhere on the way. 
I was just watching pretty images. 
I can not explain what I expected, but I really expected it. 
Story got blurred and the essence was distorted. 
I can not understand all these applause people showed after the show. 

Anyway I still enjoyed it.
Anyway it made me borrow the book. Got sunk in all this magic. 

From today-
during gap between lectures.
Coffee, muffin and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
