The City Seen: April 16-17 

Notes from the weekend

City last weekend visited the Rochester Museum and Science Center for the Genesee Region Orchid Society's Orchid Show and Sale as well as the Rochester City Ballet studio for its "Fairytales & Fables."

Regardless of how familiar you are with orchids, the various award-winning displays by area societies at Saturday's show were enough to convince anyone to dedicate themselves to a plant of their own. Dozens of the brightly colored, lightly perfumed, insect-eating flowers were in full bloom.

On Sunday, the Rochester City Ballet transformed their studio into a fairytale land, complete with dancers interacting in character, to immerse the attending children in a world of folklore. Dancers greeted the children in tutus and seemed to float around the studio as they invited them to move, play, and take photos. Puss-in-Boots, Little Red Riding Hood, and other fable characters also performed pieces to round out the magical experience.

Check below for a slideshow of photos from this weekend's events and a clip of the ballet performances.
