An Evening of Ballet
Watched Lisa Macuja-Elizalde's Ballet Manila perform at the Luce Auditorium last night. I brought my Mom along, and she was pleased as punch. Moreso because she got invited to the after-performance cocktails, though she declined.
Ian Casocot has already written a comprehensive review so I'm not going to go into much detail. Suffice to say, the whole performance was quite a pleasant surprise to me.
Prior to the start of the show, I overheard a woman complaining that her husband didn't want to come along because "ballet is for sissies."
Nubile and graceful young women -- not to mention va-va-voom pretty -- in tights? I mean, in curve-fitting body-hugging tights? Contorting into positions that I didn't think were possible with the female form? Sissy? Uh-uh, I call that heavenly.
Sorry, you'll have to content yourselves with the sissy photo above. I'm keeping the good ones for myself.
