Swan Lake

BalletI went to see the ballet Swan Lake with some great friends and a really terrible camera on my iPhone 6.  The dancers didn’t really glow in the dark, as depicted here, but it was dark and they were wearing white dresses.  I brought my digital camera, and even though I turned off the flash, the indicator still read the flash was in AUTO mode, and I wasn’t taking any chances, so I was stuck with the camera phone.

Anyway, the ballet was tremendous.  I had never been to one before and always assumed that I would be bored, but the Russians really know the creative arts.  I was blown away.  Of course, the ballet company usually performed at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, so they were superb.  Friends told me that the performance in Ufa was really poor compared to the experience in Moscow with the full orchestra and the much larger stage and theater.  Whatever, I was honored to attend.
