Tchaikovsky and ballet - like fine wine and stimulating conversation
The Capitol Theatre, along with the Nelson Overture Concert Series hosted Ballet Jorgen, one of Canada's premiere touring ballet groups on January 31, 2013, to perform the classic Swan Lake. From the first piroette and memorable theme carried by the peircing tone of the oboe, it was mezmerizing. There were gasps, laughs and tears. It was a full house with a standing ovation and the audience bellowing loud bravos at the end. To bad they couldn't have done an encore. It was a spectacular evening. The arts and culture we are exposed to in this region are phenomenal. What other cities of 10,000 or so get Sheri-D one weekend and Swan Lake the other? Thank you for valuing the arts, enjoying them, and for bringing these artists of all styles and genres to our communities.
