For starters, this dress is a little derivative of Mother Ginger’s costume in Balanchine's Nutcracker:
And need I mention that Mother Ginger is frequently portrayed by a cross-dressing male dancer in blackface? And then there’s that business of all the little polichinelles (aka Ginger Snaps or Bon Bons) running out from under her giant skirt. Really, how many minority groups does he want us to offend at the same time?
So let’s just leave the art of the dance to Toes, and Lady M’s costuming to the professionals, OK?
On the plus side, it would make MO’s butt look small.
