I saw Mark Warner at the ballet tonight

And he was in it!

I joined my mom and sister for a production of The Nutcracker this evening, my first real trip to the ballet.  The performance had a bit of a Washington D.C. spin (it was set in 1882 Georgetown) and incorporated not a small amount of Americana (Katchina dolls, the Western frontier, Frederick Douglass).

And former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner played a guest role as The Ambassador.

The performance was the first time on-stage for a seven-year-old girl (Isabelle Johnston), who’s father is a Marine serving in Iraq. Since her pops was going to otherwise miss the show, the production was taped, and will be broadcast for armed forces personnel throughout the world.
