I always appreciate your comments and keen observation!

Actually, the ballet show consistedthree independent parts. It started with Four Seasons observable in the first nine pictures. Andwent on withdifferent dances from different times and places including the Jazz Age and Hawaii dances! We finallywatched 'La Fille Mal Gardée' or 'The Wayward Daughter' ballet. May sound a bit mixed! However, it wasliterally a feast my friend

Thanks for the kind words my friend! You've empathized wellwith me :-)I usually prefer sitting at the front of the balcony floor, but that day I was sitting at the ground floorinthe fifth or sixth rowfrom the front, whichinduced me to exploit the opportunity (There was the orchestra pit in front of the stage though ):!:Once again, Ifelt luckyto have preferred the Sigma 17-70 over the 18-55 kit lens!

Cheers!

Excellent Picture. I am very impressed with the quality of them. Thanks for sharing. I feel like I was there watching as well. Out of curiosity, what settings did you use? I tried capturing my son's 5th grade graduation and between being in the back row limited to 55m and the low light .... you can imagine how bad they were
