Dancing in the Rain

Sarah and I braved the tornado warnings and flooded streets to go watch the Lexington Ballet performance of Giselle at the Opera House on Good Friday.

Barry and I had been insane little worker bees all last week in preparation for Easter. I was a bit stressed taking the time away from prep work but am so glad I did. What a great memory to have with my sister.
We arrived early (of course it was an accident) driving through flooded downtown streets. As we got out of the car we could hear the tornado warning sirens going off. So we scurried on over to the Opera House basement and purchased a glass of wine to wait it out.
Neither one of us knew the story of Giselle. So we decided to make it up as we went. It was a great ballet with a dark love story. Sarah had scored Buy one get one half off tickets from the Prima of the company who was playing Giselle and also played Clara in the Nutcracker this year. As it turns out we were seated next to her boyfriend whom I worked with in college. (small world!) We are definetely going to have to do some double dates for ballet under the stars this summer!
