Cultured Date Night

Date night came a day early this week. Dinner at a Pakistani restaurant followed by Giselle at the Kennedy Center, performed by the Mariinsky Ballet, AKA the Kirov Ballet. Chuk got me the ballet tickets for Christmas. I love ballet.

On our honeymoon we saw the Mariinsky Ballet in their home theater in St. Petersburg do a bizarre version of Swan Lake, in which the swan lived. They performed Giselle in the traditional way though.

View of the stage from my seat during intermission.

Lest I become too cultured tonight with my international food and performing arts, I'm off to watch Jersey Shore. What can I say? I love me some ballet and JWOWW. I'm a complex individual.


  1. What a wonderful Christmas present! The ballet is so wonderful, but even better at the Kennedy Center. :)

  2. Oh, I've never seen ballet at the Kennedy Center. I'm hoping to see Madam Butterfly (the opera) there later this spring.

    Speaking of the KC, did I know you were in the same general area of the country as I am? I don't think I did!

    Oh, and I'm a mix of cultures, as well. Love me some symphony and opera, but also was hooked on The Hills and Real Housewives. And spent time at a club in Miami with the Jersey Shore people. That was enough to make me not want to watch the show, though.

  3. The Jersey Shore people upset me, but I can't stop watching. Sadly, I watch some of the Real Housewives too. I guess we all have to have our guilty pleasures.


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
