I was told to make the picture, not any one of a zillion lame jokes about “The End”
Sunday Evening “Anastasia” Cary Ballet Conservatory
The immediacy of tomorrow morning only allows time to sample performance images made today.
I like this one a lot.
Saturday Matinee “Anastasia” Cary Ballet Conservatory
Ironically, this was performed last June in the production of “Anastasia” by the Cary Ballet Company. Projected lighting gave it an ethereal quality made powerful by a haunting cello. Sometimes it takes awhile to see a photograph.

The staging for this scene, “Once Upon A December”, was visually compelling. Through five performances, two dancers alternately danced the role of “Anastasia”, each beautifully, each differently. This is Ms. Breanna Johnson.

Theater, especially Ballet, is capable of grandeur.
This young lady is one of two who danced the role of the young “Anastasia”, a production of the Ballet and Jazz Companies of the Cary Ballet Conservatory. I’m a few days into editing a digital mountain of rehearsal and performance photographs. When I reach one like this, my productivity falls off, dramatically.
The Cary Ballet Conservatory recital of “Anastasia” is being performed today, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Hanes Theater, Chapel Hill High School, 1709 High School Rd. Chapel Hill, NC. It’s a wonderful production of a great story.
