Vanity’s sake – Ballet

Inspired by the comical nature of vanity and the internal struggle to enforce one’s opinion over others, such that one is always perceived as top of the pile, I decided to write a symphonic ballet and call it “Vanity’s sake”.

Imagine a group of people sitting in a conference room discussing a particular problem at length. Then one individual stands up, speaks as if no one else is in the room. He then proceeds to present his views almost daring others to oppose it. Then another person in the meeting starts to add his views, which of course are not accepted. The meeting rapidly turns into a battle of egos, effectively a territorial fight between two stags with locked horns and a fight till one wins!
