Black Swan continues to give ballet a much needed boost, with reports of increased box office demand for Swan Lake performances around the globe (we can almost hear the sound of artistic directors who have not scheduled the ballet this season kicking themselves) and stories of audience members calling the Royal Opera House to see when Natalie Portman will be making a stage appearance as Swan Queen.
Over here our site stats indicate a number of visitors via the keywords “Is Black Swan a Real Story?” which is amusing considering professional dancers’ opinions about the movie. So while we wait for the real Nina Sayers to (please) stand up, we’ve scouted the web for the best Black Swan fan art; we think a few of them give the movie’s Soviet propaganda-style posters some competition, what do you think?
