No Tame Tutus Here --- Day 8/47

Walk: SF Opera House (Shostakovich Trilogy)
Distance: 5 miles










It was back - after five years!   The New York Times hailed it as '“fascinating, poetic, and enigmatic;” many reviewers called it "a masterpiece," the audience - including Ciwt - went nuts. So yesterday Ciwt rushed off again to see SF Ballet dance Shostakovich Trilogy choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky.
Stunning once again.  And so fast moving in parts that Ciwt saw one principal dancer make an astounding recovery after nearly falling. First time she's ever seen that and an indigation to her of how demanding the dances were for even the most polished (and gorgeous!) pros.
