26.01.2011- Swan Song

In the unlikely event that Black Swan mania has passed you by (alas, a suddenly busy week has stopped me from seeing it yet), this beautiful editorial from Vogue Russia more than confirms that ballet is certainly having something of a fashion moment:

Although the Black Swan references are perhaps a tad too obvious with the monochrome styling, I really like the way that this editorial imitates a 'behind the scenes' feel and the opulence of the theatre is breathtaking. Also, in the midst of my mountain of dissertation research, I recently watched Anthony Dowell's beautiful Royal Ballet production of Swan Lake on DVD, and until the beginning of April, it is being staged again at Covent Garden's Royal Opera House. Certainly a must-see if you've been converted by Black Swan and are now a bit of a ballet nut (and, if you don't mind a restricted view, tickets are available for as little as £10). Here's the trailer:

It really is a wonderful production.

What do you think of this editorial? Have you seen Black Swan yet? If so what did you make of it?
