This weekend, Piper and I were lucky. We received tickets to The Mariinsky Ballet's Firebird as a gift! I saw The Mariinsky Ballet last summer here at Lincoln Center, but Piper had never seen them. They're known as one of the world's best ballet companies. Not only did we get tickets- but the performance was in Washington DC! On Friday morning, Piper and I woke up early to take the train down to our nation's capitol.
We knew that The Kennedy Center (where the performance was held) is a Very Important Place, so we wore our best dresses, from Melody Valerie Couture. Of course, we had to have our photo taken in the big beautiful lobby of the theatre. The Mariinsky performed three ballets- Chopiniana, Firebird, and Scheherazade. My favorite was Firebird; I loved all the monsters and the sorcerer!
During the intermissions, we went to the Members' Lounge and had lemonade and cookies! There were some other girls there too, also dressed up.
It was a magical evening; I'm so glad we had the chance to see The Mariinsky Ballet during Piper's visit! It was all thanks to a family friend of my friend Maiki, who had some extra tickets.
