    I went last night. It's the first time I've seen it and the first time I've gone to a ballet. I'm not a big stoner at all but I think it would be enhanced 1000% if I had been fucked out of my mind. Great music and some really surreal stuff = great stoner show. You might have to go out at half time and bolster up a bit.

    Played in the orchestra pit. 2.5 hours felt like 8.

    When I was a kid, we would go to see it at Lincoln Center during the holidays.

    I enjoyed it as a kid. Haven't seen it in years though.

    If going to the ballet is what it takes to become cultured then that's just another goal I'll never attain. :jj:

    That's one of the first thing my wife and daughter were talking about at intermission. I tried to steer the conversation somewhere else.

    Did it cause movement and pants snugness?

    The men are 100% muscle. Both the men and women have to be in damn good condition to do that.
