I’m coming off a great success with my 9-year old grandniece - A Midsummer Night’s Dream to music by Mendelssohn. It’s her third ballet, following The Nutcracker (twice) and Coppelia. Before the performance we went down to the orchestra pit to identify the instruments. Several of the musicians warming up waved “hi.”

I know not everyone has access to live ballet, but there are videos. I purchased The Royal Ballet’s box set (for me), which includes a range of ballets from Giselle to contemporary works, most, but not all, set to classical scores. And there are times when good camerawork helps.

I’m now thinking of an orchestral concert video of encore pieces.
