awesome awesome music babehh~ n wonderful ballet!

n its especially great cos its a screenin of d film! n not juz d music... so when u got a lil sick of watchin d musicians, u could watch d film... n when d film gets boring, u get to watch d musicians! yes... its perfect.
d harp n flute is so beautiful...

i googled sum pix of d ballet for u guys. but it doesn't do it justice at all.

the kids prancing around in their fluffy petticoated frilly dresses in Act 1
the pretty snowflakes
the sugar plum fairy
wif some dude who looked like he was thr onli to hold her while she did all her complicated twirls n points. also proof that male ballerinas really shudnt wear JUST tights.

the flowers wif all their fantastic TULLE skirts!!!
i luvd d 'waltz of d flowers' d most coz of their positively tulle-y skirts

den afterwards we all got d conductor, Carl Davis' signature... not cos i'm a fan, honestly, i've nv heard of him... juz as a cool momento. heheh.

look at him wif his typically conductor-ish white crazy hair! i bet it's for added effect
