I came across this yesterday via My Modern Met . I thought the imagery was beautiful and the physical perfection and mastery of such movement against the juxtaposition of such harsh pain---that is anything but the grace commonly concerned with apparent grace of beauty and of course Ballet.
New York City Ballet season starts in just a few weeks! I'm really excited to see NYC Ballet again; though I got to see American Ballet Theatre. It was a great premiere experience but I think I've got to see NYC Ballet once more just to make sure.
