What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Swan Lake?

Houston Ballet

Last night, the first video below caught my eye as I was trolling the internet, looking for magnificence. I so enjoyed it, I decided to go on the hunt for others along the same vein.

Tschaikovsky’s Swan Lake is one of the most recognizable ballets in the world’s history, but rather than explore the more traditional performances, I thought I’d show you some of the more creative (sorry) interpretations of the piece (including my favorite, an excerpt from Funny Girl). A visual palate cleanser, if you please. I should really say I’m going to show you some more funny interpretations, since I’ve already brought you a few. What can I say? The ballet just lends itself to hilarity.

Enjoy!

  4. My favourite interpretation – Barbra aside – was the one with the frogs. That was very clever and exceptionally well done.

  6. I am starting to understand how your mind works. Why look for the traditional when you could look for the weird. (You also look for the beautiful, but not in all of the conventional places.). Well done.
