    Frederick Ashton's "The Dream" is great as well.



    I've only seen it once - looking forward to more viewings.

    My first ballet I saw was Prokofiev's Cinderella. I'd probably recommend The Nutcracker for a first. But you must eventually try Le Sacre du Printemps! Preferably in the original choreography.

    Ugh... ! correction, the original Nijinsky choreography is the ONLY acceptable choreography for Le Sacre du Printemps! I just saw a little bit of some really disgusting alternative choreography on YouTube. Nope, nope, nope! I backed out fast! Very, VERY BAD and gratuitous! Please stick with Nijinsky, lest you want to rot your brain and scar your eyes! I could just vomit! You have been warned!

    If you're a Shakespeare fan, then in addition to R&J and Midsummer Night's Dream, try Christopher Wheeldon's "The Winter's Tale."
