For @ohfantine: Favourite “Phantom” shadows in the Il Muto ballet
(Toronto, Manchester, Japan x 2, Broadway, Moscow, Hamburg, Las Vegas)
(the Las Vegas production featured a slightly different shadow at the end of the ballet: you could see the Phantom attacking Buquet, eventually leading to Buquet’s hanging. For this they used a stunt man rather than a dummy)
Tutu Tuesday: A Wili
warming up backstage. The Wili’s tutus are the same ones that were worn when the current version of Giselle premiered on April 16, 1970, making them older than most of the dancers who wear them.
