  1. also bear in mind Baden-Baden is not far from Stuttgart.
  2. which "this" are you referring to? Pinocchio? I definitely wouldn't recommend it. Actually that's an understatement of my feelings about it. I am looking forward to the mixed program.
  3. I believe they did it just for you, Sandi!
  4. The location for the Seattle event has been changed to: 7pm April 24th Address : Third Place Books 6504 20th Ave NE Seattle, WA 98115
  5. perhaps we can all resolve to use English in our posts.
  6. I agree, but I guess it's what they can afford. Karen Kain often casts lower-than-principal-rank males in principal roles. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Saye as Siegfried in Swan Lake in June, for example. I guess if you can get them to do the principal work without the principal price tag...
  7. Congratulations. I echo what other posters have said about the website. My suggestion would be that under the "Explore Ballet" tab, the "Programs" heading be changed to "Events", since "programs" can be ambiguous. House programs? And I agree that "Explore Ballet" doesn't immediately suggest things like pre-performance talks.
  8. There are now 5 male principals. In terms of numbers, 6 male principals has been fairly typical at NBOC, and I expect Gabriele Frola or Skylar Campbell will be promoted to principal in June to take it back there.
  9. It doesn't matter how it's pronounced in Russian, we're speaking and writing English, so the conventional English spelling Bolshoi should be used. Someone searching "Bolshoi" on this forum will not find your posts, and many people seeing your headings will have no idea what company you are talking about, or only after some reflection.
  10. The Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse is also doing his Million Kisses to My Skin at the moment.
  11. It is my understanding that he has left, but I may be wrong
  12. Click on Menu in the right hand corner and then you will be able to find them.
