Back in Frankfurt, I’ve finally overcome my jet lag. Last night we went to the ballet to see “Impressing the Czar” choreographed by William Forsythe in 1988 and now re-introduced under his guidance. It was performed by the Royal Ballet of Flanders, marking the first time this piece was done by another ensemble.
The last part of Czar has the whole troupe dancing in school girl uniforms to repetitive beats and cymbals. Thoughts of Britney Spears came to my mind, with all the male dancers basically being in Britney hit-me-baby-one-more-time drag.
In case you have to get tickets, go to the box office 10 minutes prior to the show and buy your last minute seats. It’s on for 3 more days only.
