Friday object lesson #39: Ballet poster

During August, my object lessons will all have some connection with Russian ballet. This week’s object is a poster for a production of La Bayadѐre by the Kirov (Mariinsky) Ballet Company in Ottawa in February 2011. The poster was given by the company to my daughter after she successfully auditioned for a role as one of the girls in the Dance of the Golden Idol.
