What to Do This Weekend! June 15-16, 2013

What are you doing this weekend? Since I'll be riding out the storm headed to the DC area, I'm going to post about what I'd LIKE to be doing this weekend. The National Gallery of Art aka NGA is still showing its fabulous Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909–1929: When Art Danced with Music exhibit. This exhibit will not disappoint! 

Here's a snippet from the NGA website about the show:

Overview: The Ballets Russes—the most innovative dance company of the 20th century—propelled the performing arts to new heights through groundbreaking collaborations between artists, composers, choreographers, dancers, and fashion designers. Founded by Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev (1872–1929) in Paris in 1909, the company combined Russian and Western traditions with a healthy dose of modernism, thrilling and shocking audiences with its powerful fusion of choreography, music, and design. Showcasing more than 130 original costumes, set designs, paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, photographs, and posters, Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes also incorporates film clips in a theatrical multimedia installation.

Looks awesome! I know, from a special behind-the-scenes tour, that this exhibit was expensive and time-consuming and is therefore of the highest quality. 

Check it out!!!
