Boston Ballet's Lady of the Camellias

By Scorpiondisco @scorpiondisco
Lady of the Camellias opens tomorrow night, and ballet lovers (and love lovers) citywide are lining up to take in a performance.

Think you don't know the piece? If you've watched Moulin Rouge, which was inspired by the novel La Dame aux Camelias by Alexander Dumas, you may already be familiar with the sweetly sad love story of Marguerite, a courtesan, and her lover Armand.The ballet, hailed as “one of the great dramatic ballets in existence today” by Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen, has all the trappings of a perfect, transformative performance. A score by Chopin, romantic pas de deux, and a tragic love story, to boot.
