There is a discussion in the Backstage section about the creation of snow and fog in the Nutcracker and other productions. Other than the Nutcracker which has snow, does anyone know what other ballets have snow, rain, fog or bad weather?

The end of MacMillan's 'Manon' is set in the swamps near New Orleans and is distinctly foggy.

There's a new work by Nikolai Kabaniaev of Diablo Ballet called The Barre that uses a fog machine. The work depicts the lives of dancers centered around a barre. There's fog on the floor, which, if real, would probably be prohibited by dancers' union contracts. <P>

There's a storm and a flood in Swan Lake (at least, there's supposed to be one). And I believe the Bolshoi's production of the Pharaoh's Daughter includes "lilac smog." <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~<BR><A HREF="http://www.freetown.com/Uptown/HaightAshbury/1055/ballet.html" TARGET=_blank>Balletica</A><BR>

never heard of 'lilac smog'!! of course there's giselle act 2. there must be SO MANY...i'd rather not begin to think about it - this list would be a long one.<P>but 'bad weather' specifically, in the sense of cracking thunderstorms: now THAT list might be more interesting (and shorter!)...
