Abstract sketch reflecting The Nutcracker performance
This abstract sketch depicts the emotion of enchantment that swept through me while I witnessed the magical production of Tchaikovsky's fantasy ballet at the Festival Theatre, Malvern, yesterday. The Russian State Ballet of Siberia lived up to their international reputation, with the soloists and corps be ballet mesmerising all of us in the audience with their physical prowess and emotional power through graceful movement. The production colours and lighting created a breathtaking display. The performers gave heart and soul and simply blew me (and all of us) away.
