The Swan Lake at the ‘Terme di Caracalla’

Yesterday night, artistic evening. Yesterday night: ballet.

In the stunning setting of the Caracalla Baths, we watched the Swan Lake.

It’s difficult to describe the emotions that such performance produced in us. I tried to film some of the dances, in the (vain) hope of capturing the glorious atmosphere of the evening.

If you don’t suffer from sea-sickness, have a look at this short clip*, and try to imagine these dancers moving following the notes of Tchaikovsky under a starry sky, lit by a half-full moon, and surrounded by the millenary remains of the Thermae by night… shivers!

And if it is true that classical music makes prenatal babies more intelligent because it stimulates I don’t know which part of their brain, after three hours of concert Baby must have become a genius!

(*) More in the next few days.
