Marcos and I were lucky enough to see the Colorado Ballet’s Swan Lake last weekend. This ballet has been top on my list for years and I was giddy with excitement as the lights went down and the curtain opened.
The ballet is a magical escape from the daily grind. The costumes, Colorado Ballet Symphony, and theatrics transport you for a few short hours. Watching the dancers is meditative, you don’t have to focus on words like in a play and you can just sit back and enjoy the choreography. Swan Like was powerful, graceful, and oozed with romance. Baby McQueen loved the roar of the symphony and was leaping in tune with the dancers during the last act.
We saw the matinee and had drinks and dinner after. It was the perfect date because matinee tickets are reasonable and easy to get for popular shows. The timing is perfect because you exit just in time for an early dinner. I loved the crisp autumn air, wearing a cute new outfit, and walking around the theatre district with Marcos after the show.
The Colorado Ballet will feature Swan Lake until October 23rd and will start the Nutcracker on Nov 26th. You can purchase tickets here. This winter, make a perfect date and go to the ballet. The experience is timeless, lovely, special, and festive.
