WIW Frankenstein Ballet

This year I got a 3-show subscription to the San Francisco Ballet.  I mostly prefer abstract ballets that are music rather than story driven, but decided I had to see Frankenstein because I admire the ballet's young British choreographer Liam Scarlett.  The show did not disappoint and I was especially taken by Wei Wang who performed the role of creature.  On the night that I attended, all the lead roles were performed by Soloists not Principal dancers which I thought was great.  The costumes, lighting and sets were impressive, imaginative and gorgeous.  I did not care as much for the score but then again my appreciation for modern music is limited.

Here's what I wore.  I went for black, because I had three separate outfits and let the SO pick one out.  He enjoys being my in-house stylist, because he says it makes him feel needed.

The long sheer silk shirt dress is from 2012 or 2013.  That's how long I hang on to my things.  The red woven cashmere scarf is my newest item, from Amazon purchased as a completer.  You can sort of see how it looks with the black leather jacket in the blurry second picture.

SO looks pretty good for someone who's come off of 6 months of chemo.  He has MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndromes), a bone marrow disease.

ETA -- Form member Rachylou also attended this ballet, here's her outfit!  Unfortunately we went on different days, so could not do a micro meet up.
