Things I learnt from the Bolshoi Ballet

  1. A cannon can universally be marched onto stage at any point in the production
  2. People applaud constantly
  3. Leaning over the barrier to see better is considered poor form
  4. There was a lot of dancing in circles
  5. The clothes during the time of the French Revolution made everyone look like pirates
  6. Smurf Hats were routinely used
  7. Despite all of the above, I very much enjoyed it
