How wonderful the costumes were and the original dance animations?
how you stared in awe at the pyrotechnics and particle effects and fog and lighting and moving shifting growing spinning objects?
Remember how you cried when you heard they were gone?
Ohmycog do I have good news for you!
THEY ARE BACK!
Steve Ruhig-Allen, Othon Weiland-Nootan, Red Hykova and the many other talented members of the artistic team, have landed on the Island of Christos; River Island Performing Arts, a theater located on Christo Spyker's beautiful River Island Sim. The sim hosts an art gallery, dance club cafe, and artsy pose scenery. RIPA offers musicals, drama, dance, ballet, revues, and live concerts, all year around. They also have Theatre Magazine, which outlines the latest news and events in the SL Theatre scene.
AND what a better way to showcase their amazing talents, than with THE NUTCRACKER?
I got my invite by steam powered pigeon, and I simply could not be contained! I had one hour till show? There was makeup! Shoes! The proper dress!
Shoes by N-Core, dress by Utopia, the "Go-To" for going out.
The trolley stopped in the square looking at the RIPA's enormous facility, behind me was TRACS, the local dance club.
Champagne was provided! And free Theatre Magazines, Group applications, freebies table for holiday presents,, fabulous!
The ticket said A-8,,, Front row of the balcony, by the Art Gallery!
The designers opted for cute in their opening, and it excelled!
In RIPA fashion, the house grows from a tiny piece onstage to filling the entire mammoth stage!
The transformation to the Forest, the growth of the nutcracker into lifesize, was breath taking as it nearly exploded off stage!
the River Island Performing Arts Theatre!
--I had much more to show, but... that would not be fair to you, as no photo can truly do this justice, I would not want you thinking you had in any way experienced the electric, awe inspiring spectacle!
YOU HAVE ONE LAST PERFORMANCE!
THURSDAY JAN 4, 1 PM SL Time (US Pacific time)
Tell them you read about them here, maybe I will get to see for myself if other sentient clockworks exist there!
