Love, Betrayal and Pirouettes?

Angelina Ballerina was one of my favorite children's book series as a little girl intrigued by whimsical illustrations of mice twirling and leaping in pink and yellow tutus. Despite the current shift to digital means, the tangible world of literature will always be close to my heart, invoking memories of the excitement I'd feel whenever I'd open up a cover to dive into yet another new dreamworld. Like I told a friend of mine the other day, I can't imagine curling up by the fireplace with a steaming cup of tea by my side, eager to dive into the world of my... e-book?

Speaking of dreamworlds... American Ballet Theatre (ABT) returns to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to perform Swan Lake, a romantic tale of love, betrayal and forgiveness. Click here for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see this production of breathtaking choreography, lavish costumes, visually spectacular sets and Tchaikovsky's glorious score.

And leave it to LA to provide opportunities for children of all ages to meet Angelina Ballerina and pose for photos. Children can meet this favorite mouseling following the 2pm ABT matinee on March 29th. I'd go if I didn't already have plans... just kidding. Well, sort of.

Be sure to check out ExperienceLA for more ABT performance dates and times!
