Alternately, if he was an acrobat, it would be Tchaikovsky the Amazing! But he wasn't. So it isn't.
Hands down my favorite composer, Pyotr Tchaikovsky (which I still have to look 4 or 5 times to make sure I'm spelling correctly. Russian!) produced within his 53 short and troubled years the most beautiful and emotional music I have yet to hear from anyone else. I could listen to the entire score of Swan Lake for days on end -- Scene, in particular. I can't help but wonder how on earth composers can conjure up such amazing sounds from thin air. Or any artist, for that matter. Such creativity must come from being ridiculously inspired by something. Which is....well...inspiring. I'm very profound this morning.
While I've attended a few orchestra concerts, and even an opera once, I have yet to see a live ballet. And since you're never too young to start a bucket list, item #1 for me: see Swan Lake in Prague. Totally doable.
