Final night time I attended the season announcement celebration for Texas Ballet Theater with my buddy Rachel and I couldn’t wait to let you know about it! The cocktail celebration was held on the Perot Museum in Dallas, which I actually ought to go to extra typically, and featured mild bites and signature cocktails. Y’all ought to have seen my face when the bartender requested if I wished a Magnificence and the Beast cocktail. I believed I dreamed it for a second. Me? The Disney Dinners lady? Absofreakinlutely!
The glowing Magnificence and the Beast cocktail was a mixture of gin, champagne, and a lemon easy syrup, glittering with Fancy Sprinkles prism powder. (Sure, I bought that particular with the bartender!) It could have been a beautiful addition to my Magnificence and the Beast ceremonial dinner.
I wore slightly black gown from J Crew with blush booties and a white wrap for the event. I pulled a part of my hair again with an enormous black bow. Can we normalize grown ladies sporting bows? Frankly I felt lovable and a ballet cocktail celebration felt like the right place to sport a giant velvet bow.
The 2023-2024 season begins with Dracula, which might be certainly one of my favourite reveals I’ve ever seen by Texas Ballet Theater, September 15-17 in Dallas and October 6-8 in Fort Value. I’m so pumped they’re doing it once more! It’s an ideal strategy to kickoff spooky season.
Then in fact there’s The Nutcracker, which I see yearly, November 24-December 3 in Dallas and December 8-24 in Fort Value. It simply wouldn’t be Christmas with out The Nutcracker!
Subsequent up is Brilliants February 23-25 in Fort Value and March 1-3 in Dallas. The combined repertoire options 4 brief ballets in a single: Rubies, Grand Pas Classique, Le Corsaire Pas de Deux, and With out Borders.
Final however actually not least for this Disney fanatic is Magnificence and the Beast Might 3-5 in Dallas and Might 17-19 in Fort Value. I’ve by no means seen the ballet model of Magnificence and the Beast earlier than and couldn’t be extra excited, particularly since Texas Ballet Theater is ending this season with Alice in Wonderland. Is that this the beginning of an annual Disney present? Right here’s hoping!
Cheers to the humanities,
