Gisele In Waiting

There's something magical about seeing backstage photos of a ballet. It's so strange, but wonderful to see the ethereal creatures of the stage transported to dressing rooms and stretching about props and ladders. It also makes you appreciative of the work that goes into each performance; the costume designers stitching up tutus right on the dancers, the anxious moments waiting in the wings, etc. These photographs are by Daniel Neuhaus, taken as the National Ballet rehearses for Gisele.
