Dream Casting…

Some have fantasy football… I have fantasy ballet nights. If I were going to die, I would cash out everything I own and have one super star studded night of good ballet. And, I probably would invite all of my friends and family as well. (That has yet to be decided) Now, with all of these international super star gala events… My lineup doesn’t seem that absurd, or impossible… But, if I had the chance to curate one night of magical goodness…. It would be:
