One of the wonderful things about living in a small European city like Sarajevo is that we are walking distance from the National Theater and excellent, affordable ballet and opera (drama, too, if we only understood Bosnian better). We love being able to take our kids to this beautifully-restored theater,
to lean over the orchestra pit and watch the musicians tune up,
to enjoy that expectant hush before the lights to go down, all for the price of a movie theater ticket in the US.
Last week we saw Pepeljuga, or Cinderella. It was a high-energy, funny, thoroughly delightful production.
Even Isaac came out of it dancing, which, for a boy who wasn't sure if he wanted to go in the first place, is saying a lot.
