I think I have only ever been to one Ballet -Swan Lake though cannot really remember.

It is not something I would choose to do and would far rather go to a pop concert or a concert of one of my favourite singers, or even go to a play.

So, NO, while I do not hate ballet, I would find a few hours of it rather boring.

It was something I did not do as a child, and nor did my daughter.

I learnt ballet as a child in Zumbabwe, Mum made all my tutus and I got up on points....pity the old bod is not in that sort of condition now! Enjoy watching ballet occasionally

I have been once about 1980.
Sydney Opera House, it was very nice.

Not been again since, life takes over!
Jonaj, is that picture of a Degas painting? Cheers!
by donjo
No I don't think so, the bottom right hand side looks like a longer signature.

I've been to the ballet a couple of times but not since I got married. It's not my husband's cup of tea and we mostly go out together.
I have thoroughly enjoyed watching any ballet which I have seen! There is so much strength and energy involved in what appears from a distance to be very ethereal and gentle!
I enjoy The Nutcracker as part of the winter holiday tradition, but I don't typically watch ballet at other times.
yes a friend 's daughter was in a ballett group and was invited to go and watch her daughter, this was about 13 years ago
Enjoy the Ballet very much & have been going to it since a small child.
My favourite is 'Swan Lake'. Saw the American Ballet Theatre's production last year & really enjoyed it. They gave it a very interesting 'twist' at the end.

THE best I've seen was Matthew Bourne's version, with the male swans bare-chested blokes, with feathery 'trousers'. It was simply brilliant! If you saw movie 'Billy Elliott', the very last scene with a grown-up Billy leaping onto stage, THAT was the lead dancer, Adam Cooper, in the Sadler's Wells production, with costume as in above as I said.
Also enjoy 'Carmen' as a Ballet & see 'The Nutcracker' each two years'.

Ballet in Australia had its' 'Golden Age' with Sir Robert Helpmann, in the '50's & '60's. The artistes' be brought here were marvellous. Bobbie brought Rudolph Nureyev here. The female dancers at the time, Dame Margot Fonteyn et al & the males, like Garth Welsh were the best.
I have never been to the ballet so I cant say whether I like or dislike it.
I was late in the ballet-love stakes, however the latent stirring has proved a treat for all the senses. The latest offerings are from the Bolshoi which i will be attending in Simulcast at the Orpheum, Cremorne.
Mum and I used to go regularly until she couldn't see or hear that well. Now my second daughter and I like to watch locally more so than travelling to the city so we can enjoy a lovely dinner prior to the show and don't have far to go home.
I love ballet live but not on TV - the small screen diminishes the performance
Yes, I did do ballet when I was young, at our local RSL hall, & I would stay on after my class & watch the TAP dancing lessons, then I would go home & tap around the house on our wooden floors. many many years later, my mum said she was sorry she didn't let me learn tap dancing! Our daughters never had dance lessons. I can't remember going to see the ballet at the SOH, but a school friend & I do go to the opera sometimes, if she can win & buy cheap tickets.
