Ever wonder what happens in the moments immediately after the curtain falls? Take a look at the scene that unfolds onstage when those house lights come up:

Bows over, intermission started, the crew immediately begins the change into the next ballet and the dancers scatter to do the same. Twenty minutes might seem like a long intermission, but it's no time at all when you've got to change costume, hair, headpiece, pointe shoes, preset your props and quick change pieces, and hopefully try a few steps of the next ballet.
