Raymonda in Theatre Vanemuine


Jacob Hoover (Abderahman) and Hayley Blackburn (Raymonda)

I always have the problem of not being able to concentrate to the actual performance while busy hunting for the best shots, but even so some of the scenes were really engaging. The costumes of the ballet Raymonda were just breathtaking. In case of guys the brilliant costumes usually meant a detailed and glamorous tops while downwards there were usually light tights. I am not complaining about the tights at all though. I found myself realizing that boys in tights must have been what initially made me fall in love with ballet. I suppose I can be called a balletophile.
