|The Opera was simply full last night. No empty seats, no place to wander around during breaks, lots of people everywhere. They all came to see Swan Lake. A beautiful ballet. Moreover, the leading stars of the National Opera, Corina Dumitrescu and Ovidiu Matei Iancu, were Odette and Siegfried.
It was indeed a beautiful experience: beautiful costumes, exquisite music, and the ballet in itself, well I am speechless when it comes to praising it, as there are no proper words. This is one of the ballets they are always making a wonder of, unless others I have seen.
But! There is a but of course. They changed the prologue and the one I have seen 2 years ago seemed a bit better. Also, Swan Lake only highlighted the first-ballerina. Ovidiu Matei Iancu was there to make her look good most of the times. Not that there is something wrong with that, but I have seen them both at their best and it looks even more amazing.
It was great going there again and not being disappointed, as it happened last year. As for the photos, well, the opera does not have that many of the dancers, so, these are a few of what I found and liked online.
