    They should start with the actual ballet.

    Come on, Downes in a tutu, Steve in tights, Davison in pointe shoes..... Who wouldn't be moved by that...?
    Getting over all the time I had to worry.....

    I think everyone would be moved....or rather move themselves....outside the venue that is.....
    ReAwaken (after the Bethlehem Sands concert 2016):
    Sometimes in music, the songs can transcend the band members themselves - I think Yes is such a band.

    ARW, to retaliate, could stage the ballet Anderson wrote.

    Ursprung, part of Underground Rumours staged by Scottish Ballet in 1979. I saw it at Coventry. Ian Anderson contributed The Water's Edge, and there was a ballet based on Shakespeare characters to music by Duke Ellington to conclude. I have the programme knocking about somewhere. What I remember of it was very good. It may have been that evening that triggered my love of ballet......

    A recording of the music emerged online a few years ago.

    I'm thinking Louie, Louie or the intro to Smoke On The Water would be great.

    Just imagine!

    That, is a great idea! But right after Louie, Louie.

    Yes has never used a water fountain display behind the stage yet...you know, vegas style... that could be cool, water dancing to yes music.... it's super corny but I would love it... I can see Jon loving it and Trevor being embarrassed while it was in use, if they did. :)

    if anything... my favorite opening so far was the close encounters opening during the Tormato tour... if I had my way for the 50th.... it would be the Firebird into close encounters into Starship trooper to open a show.
    Great ideas! Maybe Munchkins frolicking around the stage to Firebird Suite sped up super fast in triple speed maybe. And champagne fountains on both sides of the stage too? Something grand and proggy for the 50th...
