This past week we found out what our ballet performance is going to be for next July. It is going to be based on the Feature Films for Family movie Rigoletto. As our ballet teachers put it;
"Rigoletto is a magical story that takes a fairy tale's plot and drops it into the lap of a small town in America. It is the story of Rigoletto, an elf engaged to the beautiful princess Gorfindle in the land of make-believe. On the night before Rigoletto is to wed his princess, he is struck in the face by a magical sword and cursed to live among the mortals. The spell can only be broken by someone with a pure heart who will love him in spite of his disfigured face."
We are excited to watch the movie and even more excited to watch the ballet take shape! The anticipation!
