Is it possible to draw an ellipse in Mathematica that is not orthogonal
to the XY axes?  E.g., leaning over 30 degrees?

I thought perhaps I could specify it orthogonally and then apply a
rotation transformation, but the only transformations available seem to
be scaling (Scaled) and translation (Offset).

Of course I could use a series of line segments, but I want this to be
smooth even when printed on a high-resolution printer.  Any tips?
