    Love this one......
    Theatre, a forum for public debate, an arena for cathartic spectacle and somewhere for vain bitchy people to show off in front of big crowds!


    I forgive criticisms, I like to embrace enemies.

    Ballet? Read the book!

    It is much better in Spanish, by the way.

    the book had been read already, that's understood; ballet is about dance and music, for your information.

    Minkus! Ugh! It's his kind of music that set ballet back for so long.

    In which case, why are Don Quixote and La Bayadere still revived regularly and loved by audiences? Tchaikovsky may have set ballet music off in another - so called "symphonic" - direction, but Pugni, Minkus and others were not aiming at that end and they more than achieved their rather more limited objectives. Bravo Minkus!
