Houston Ballet's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was absolutely AMAZING!!!! Classical ballet at some times, contemporary at others. LOVED the entire fairy scene.

Bringing this back... I can't pick a favorite, but La Bayadere, Giselle, Nutcracker, Serenade, and Le Corsaire are definitely my top 5 ;)

Scheherazade

I've always had a special devotion to Swan Lake. I know, I know, it's quite cliché to love something quite so classic, but there you go. Other ballets I love are: Giselle, Firebird, Scheherazade (obviously!), La Bayadere... But anything I watch live, I love.

Sadly, I have never been to a ballet before. I have never seen or felt the actual raw presence of the dancers on stage, I am very jealous of others who have the chance to feel it. I would love to see Swan Lake, the Nutcracker, Alice in Wonderland, and specifically Sleeping Beauty- in my opinion, Sleeping Beauty was made for ballet, it is such a pretty story itself. I can only dream to have a solo in SB.

I love Swan Lake (the arms are so expressive and so many beautiful steps) and La Bayadere (it's so tragic yet filled with hope and love, I like the Nikiya's solo before she dies.  She is so sad and then she gets the flowers and becomes the happiest woman alive).:)

I prefer the "mixed bill" approach with maybe three shorter pieces over a full length story ballet.  

If we're talking only full length ballet, then I'd probably have to go with Nutcracker, because of the grand Christmas tradition, fabulous music, and community involvement.
