Swan Lake - National Ballet of China

It's been 40 years or more since I performed as an extra in The Royal Winnipeg Ballet performance of Swan Lake. I'll never forget the extraordinary performance of Baryshikov of the Bolshoi some years later. Karen Kain forever enchanted me with her Swan Lake performances with Canada's National Ballet . Now having loved many Swan Lakes, Tchaikovsky's music so enthralling, I have been truly uplifted by the divine dance of Prima Ballerina, Wang Qimin of the National Ballet of China.
The troupe collectively danced near perfection. The costumes and set were beyond spectacular. No dance was more deserving of its standing ovations. Thank you Ballet BC for hosting this incredible classical performance !
