BOLSHOI THEATRE


Beauty grace and elegance in nature. Here's Rudolph Nureyev and Anna Pavlova for you.( they performed at different periods) You don't need any Tchaikovsky to go with it.



A scene from mid summer night's dream.

I have each and every note of swan lake in my mind Lorraine, I love it. The beast I have is Zubin's

There seems to be something wrong with first picture. It was beautiful but you just killed a pretty bird by clipping off its beak. Oh well, I'm not a graphic designer or artist.

Rauf said...

Yes Cobra, a fraction of a sec late. I selected that picture for muscle structure and body design.

Lorraine said...

Yes I love Swan Lake :) Ever listened to Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1: it's heavenly!

Rauf said...

Lorraine, I had this music, but never knew it was Eric Satie, This was played by John Williams ( Sky )
Not our famous john williams, he is an Australian. Still have it on tape. very haunting piece of music it is. Its either in Sky 1 or Sky 4 album. I used to listen to this piece in sikkim part of himalayas over and over again.

Rauf, this is absolutely fabulous... and the imagery you put to your pictures! There's heart in your photography, and music in your soul. I've never seen such captivating, thorough photos, other than maybe on a National Geographic special. Your shots are a gift! Thank you for sharing them with us.
