Love this tutu!

This picture is from The Australian Ballet's new "My Favourite Tutu" calendar (available through their website). I love the funky tutus in William Forsythe's Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, which is a dazzling display of ballet virtuosity (with that Forsythe twist) performed to Schubert's Great C Major Symphony played at breakneck speed. If a ballet company near you ever performs it, GO SEE IT!!
For more info on the tutu calendar, visit the Australian Ballet's excellent blog, Behind Ballet.
