"There they are, the dancers, so fine and gracious, with make-up and dressed in elf clothing and troll fur, beetle wings and rococo wigs. It’s an enchanting sight. I carefully take the camera from my bag. I do not dare to press too hard on the release button or stand too close. I feel like a stranger here, trying to settle in. Looking through my viewfinder, I constantly discover new expressions in the movements, captivating me. Lights glide poetically over the magical scenery. The orchestra fills the theatre with music. The dancers are transformed. The orchestra and the dancers become one."
