Something of opera and dance about today

Magic work I came across today in my web wanderings; Lotte Reiniger’s silhouette films are the ‘oldest surviving animated feature length films, from 1926. J commented that the above was more suitable for T, since she’s the one doing animation, but then later I discovered Etsuko Ichikawa, which is sort of more relevant to my own work. First her Firebird piece- more opera, and then this- She blows glass wearing dance shoes!

particularly from 1:23
