Mixed Bill Pics

That famed saying 'the show must go on', was never more evident than this afternoon when The State Ballet of Georgia headed straight back to the practice barres after completing three (critically acclaimed no less) shows of Giselle. Photographers, journalists, a film crew and Playhouse staff watched in awe from the stalls as the highly skilled dancers performed pirhouette after pirhouette under the watchful eye of Nina Ananiashvili. The ever elegant Mrs Ananiashvili was being interviewed right up to the point where the curtain went up and then oversaw rehearsals from the stalls giving commentary using a micophone. Never had so many people wished they spoke Georgian!
Here are some pics from today's rehearsals show. Mixed Bill opens at the Playhouse tonight and finishes tomorrow (Wed 13).
