Emotional Stages of Watching my First Ballet Show

Just last month, at the age of 23, I finally saw my first ballet show. Growing up, I have always heard the words, ‘Russian’ and ‘Ballet’, go together. So obviously, when the trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg was finalised, I looked up whether the Bolshoi Theatre (Moscow) had seats. *Bolshoi theatre has one of the best ballet shows, especially the Swan Lake.

Unfortunately, Bolshoi was due to open the morning I was flying to St. Petersburg, disappointed and slightly upset, I booked my tickets for Swan Lake at the Alexandrisky Theatre. The show, obviously, blew me away. Below is a very simple gif-esque rendition of emotional stages of watching my first ballet show…
