Would you like to see the second act of the ballet La Sylphide in the dense forest, or maybe the second act of Don Quixote? Or, for example, the Swan Lake, sitting by the lake in the dark evening? Imagined? Strong scent of the forest, water splashes and darkness, interrupted here and there by the reflection of the moon.
Alexander Ekman`s courageand along with Norwegian National Ballet willingness to experiment allowed viewers to some extent feel the pleasure of the abovementioned. But who will go further?

So far, thanks to the imagination of photographers ballerina is placed to the nature scenery only on photography.
