"mixed bill- friday"
   I took two new-comers to the ballet last night - one was a tough former army seageant the other was a theatre design student. They both loved it. They particularly liked the Turn of the Screw! This is surprising because it is not the a most approachable ballet. I think adults who are trying to get into ballet should start with this stuff or Macmillan but not Swan Lake!

They were both enraptured by the energy and excitement of Rhapsody as well! I hope to have created two new ballet fans!

   I agree, Swan Lake is not the best intro for adults or children. Its long, the white act needs concentration and knowledge of steps and music to keep the interest. I do not mean you have trained as a dancer, but an awareness of lifts, balances and patterns in ballet which comes with watching dance is needed to gain the most from it.
Nutcraker and Fille are better for both adults and children, and I personally like Hobson's Choice for adults.
Edward would suit some but not all adults, and three one act ballets can be brillient for others.
A topic for a future Mini-poll perhaps?
