The Greatest Ballet Performance

I was very honored to receive the tickets to watch a spectacular ballet performance recently at Kuala Lumpur's Istana Budaya. My friends and I truly enjoyed the whole show of ~ "Coppelia -The Girl With Enamel Eyes"

Last week, I received the beautiful photos from the organizers as the general audience would not be able to snap such great angles like them. My heartfelt thanks to these photographers for sharing ~ James Quah, Meei Sien, Serena Tan & Patrick Heart . Here I must also share them in case you have missed this greatest ballet performance in Malaysia.



All the dancers gave a fantastic ballet dance musical night with a happy ending story line.






The lead dancers were so well trained and could jump up so gracefully!




Graceful moves like a pretty Swan.



This part was hilarious to see a mummified dancer being tossed about lightly like a toy.




They had fantastic lighting and props to create the magical mood.




 This is the leading ballerina, Ena Hirose from Japan.






The leading male ballet dancer always has nice legs, waist, buttocks, arms, significantly representing the professional male figure truly! 



He was so light like feathers and pranced up like a shooting star!




 The talented dancers were all from Malaysia and overseas, as far as Japan & others.



 Their expressions and music was perfect to keep the audience entertained.



 This ballerina was all dolled up precisely for her role.



The young children danced very beautifully with happy faces.




 They could easily stand on their toes with perfect graceful movements.





 The great show ended with warmest long applause from the audience.
I am looking forward to more ballet shows!

  6. I saw some dancers that look like locals. I guess they are from ASWARA? :-)

  7. Whenever I see a ballet performance, I don't snigger at the thought of men wearing tights but actually I marvelled at how toned and muscular the dancers are. Don't you agree Anay?

    Some people think male dancers are sissies but look at them. They are strong, agile and talented! Mak Glam suka! ;)

    1. Lina, a media company in South Africa once staged a fitness competition between a group of rugby players and a group of male ballet dancers. Guess who won by a mile? ;)

  9. I started grinning when I visited your blog tonight - from Dusty Revenge to graceful ballet dancers, Twilight Man has it all!

    I think both male and female ballet dancers have beautiful, strong, graceful bodies, and those kids are TOO CUTE! (I live in Japan, so I have to throw in a "cute" or ten. Grin.)

  15. Ooooo...lovely!!! So very nice. Wahhhh!!!! So good, people give you photos to post - usually, I would have to curi-curi snap. They do not allow photographs.

    1. this ex-teacher STP still curi-curi snap photos even if already told no photographs allowed?? later you will get caught and brought up to stage to dance together with the professional dancers.. oh, i can imagine that must be the most entertaining session for the show!! :D

      Delete
  16. thank you for sharing the nice photos of the performance.. you are right, even if we were allowed to shot photos, i don't think we were able to take such sharp and nice shots at all.. guess you need all the professional gadgets to do that..

    ReplyDelete
  17. i always believe all the dancers, lead or supporting, have trained years over years, and shed litres and litres of sweat and tears before they could even step onto the stage.. it's years of hardwork backstage for that couple of minutes of glorious performance on the stage..

    ReplyDelete
  18. all the dancers have very defined body and muscles, with all the prancing and kaki berkangkang they just have to wear tights lah, make sense.. and i am not particular about their tights but the beauty of their movements.. oh, how i wish i could have their lean fit and defined body~~

    ReplyDelete
  19. Seem like I have missed a great show!!! =[

  36. Lolz at your comment on Rurousha reading 3 times to get the picture of the grandfather story haha. Gathering more facts about DiZangWang to post during ghost month. One set back Bananaz have 'accidentally' delete the email and all those drafts were gone as well need to redo and research again. Please slow slow wait yet to snap a last pixz of one huge statue of DiZangWang in PJ temple but the sign says 'No Photography' woh. Perhaps shall ask a special favour from the nun sifu to make special exception.
