Using gardening as a metaphor for living... This blog is how some plants & flowers, creepy things, and the dead brought me back to life.

... a gift of sleepy hollow pliés...
I'm very excited about this. The only time I have attended the Washington Ballet was to see Dracula and it was amazing... life changing even. This will be a little birthday present to myself... and considering that I waited until the last minute (i.e. I forgot the tickets had come out), I'm lucky that we could even get tickets.
Sleepy Hollow. An atmospheric thriller, Washington Irving’s classic tale is now being told through the expressive and lush language of ballet. In a love triangle, the new school teacher, Ichabod Crane, finds himself smitten by a flirtatious beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, much to the displeasure of town rowdy, Brom "Bones” Van Brunt. A rivalry ensues and the ghostly “Headless Horseman” comes into play one fateful night. This program features original live music.
