On the Road Friday ~ Minnesota Ballet

Hello, Welcome to On the Road Friday. 
We are going to take a trip to Duluth, Minnesota to the Symphony Hall and enjoy Sleeping Beauty ~ The Ballet Story.
The performance was presented by the Minnesota Ballet Company.


 The DECC 

Located on the shores of Lake Superior in the resort city of Duluth, the DECC offers world-class convention, sport, special event and entertainment facilities. We’re just steps away from quaint Canal Park and Downtown, offering shops, restaurants and hotels. And did we mention the panoramic views of the Aerial Lift Bridge and the Harbor?

If you’re looking for entertainment in Northeastern Minnesota, look no further. The DECC is home to the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, Broadway series, concerts, Home and Sports Shows, Minnesota Ballet, UMD Men’s and Women’s Bulldog Hockey and the William A. Irvin ore boat museum.


 Nice and warm inside the Symphony Hall.

 Comfortable seating for the ballet.


This was a first for our boys. I enjoy ballet, I was not sure if they would or not. I wanted to treat them to a ballet. Sleeping Beauty is a story they already know, so I thought it would be a good ballet for them to experience.
To my delight, they loved it. 

We are not allowed to take photos during the performance...so I leave you with

Once Upon A Time

Do you enjoy ballet? Do you have a favorite?

  1. Hi Carla, What a lovely building with incredible views. I confess I have never been to a ballet! I think it would be a wonderful treat. So glad you guys had this opportunity. Wishing each of you a happy weekend. xo

  2. I was a ballerina! I have the beaten toe shoes in the attic to prove it! Never danced Sleeping Beauty, but it's a favorite and the movie too, of course. I love that song. Know it by heart and even though the preschool binge movie watching days are over, we still sing it around the house pretty often. Happy Friday and thanks for the fun post!

  4. These are fantastic photos of one of my favorite cities! We've not been to that building, but it sure looks like it was a wonderful time. I do enjoy ballet, but usually watch it at home on PBS Great Performances.I also love our granddaughter's ballet, Reign Dance Theatre. Seeing that great shot of the lake and lift bridge through the window makes me want to get up there again soon!
