Ballet The Snow Queen at the National Theatre's State Opera
One great thing about working at Locus Workspace is its location. This Sunday I am going to catch up on some work and then head up the street to see a matinee performance of the ballet The Snow Queen at the National Theatre's State Opera. It takes about five minutes to get there on foot. The ballet is completely sold out, which will make for an even more exciting performance. The music is by the terrific composer Prokofiev, who also wrote the fabulously distinctive music for his ballet Romeo and Juliet. (I have fond memories of seeing Prokofiev's R & J in Budapest.) An interesting detail about the Czech National Theatre production is that the Snow Queen's costume will be decorated with 30,000 real Czech crystals.
