That was incredible, tho' the 'bouncy bugs' thing instead of the usual 'young swans' was a bit strange! Looking at the hyperextension of her knees made me cringe, but she was fantastically graceful. And I loved the fluffy feathery butt bounces of her fellow "swans" lol!

I watched a bit of the Kirov production at the bottom scrolling options...it looked operatic and clumsy by comparison!

The 'bugs' were frogs. :-)

I noticed the bouncy butt swans, too, and I thought that was great effect. I did cringe with some of her moves, though like you I am still awed by her gracefulness.

Now see, I thought the green things were frogs, but the "eyes" on their hats looked so buggish it threw me off track!

Bouncy swan butts made me miss my hen duck butts, tho'. :::sniffle:::

Why do beautiful things have to make me cry? It's so annoying.

Embrace the tears and maybe they will not be so annoying? Or not. :P~

It is amazing. I can't even imagine standing on someone's arms let alone being graceful. Shit - I'm not graceful on solid ground!
