In which ballet does the lead male character joyfully present a dead rabbit to the ballerina? In which ballet does the ballerina fall from a horse and later salute a fountain? In which ballet do we get to see the pink frills on the priest's long johns? In which ballet does a sneezer blast an entangled pas de quatre? (hint: it all may happen in the same ballet... making a little promo here :) )

Well Hilarion presents dead game to Giselle's mother and in Alice the dormouse sneezes but not at anyone in particular, I think.  I've never seen a undressed priest in any ballet and I'm not at all sure I want to.  Possibly something Matthew Bourne or John Neumeier might dream up?

Doesn't the girl in Spectre de la Rose dance throughout with her eyes closed as if she is asleep?

 

 

I just checked it - when she is in the chair eyes are closed.  But when she is dancing with the Rose, her eyes are opened - she often looks at him.  This makes sense since in one's dream one would have open eyes.

 

But that is an interesting question.  

 

Next  "In which ballet........anyone?
