No, you're right, ballet is totally not my thing. I am not a ballet kind of girl. :-) But I still have a piece of ballet to share today ... I was at Oslo Book Festival all day yesterday and at one of the events I went to - this was at the Opera - they showed a part of a new ballet they will be debuting next weekend. World premiere. It's by Jo Strømgren who is one of the most famous Norwegian dancers and choreographers. Not that he has a lot of competition, but still. :-) The ballerina here is Maiko Nishino, she is the prima ballerina of the Norwegian National Ballet, so it was kind of a treat, I suppose, to get to see her dance without paying through the nose for it. I don't really get it, but even I can tell that they're really good at what they're doing.
The ballet is inspired by Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, so obviously that's where the music is from.
