  1. Yes absolutely. This is a work of genius. It's a master class in how to program a ballet performance. Certain Contemporary ADs unmentioned now have no idea how to structure a program. Tasteful appetizer, hearty main course, delicious dessert. There it is. An entire ballet based on a simple walking step. Thank you canbelto for the suggestion for the matinee. Unfortunately I have a prior commitment or I wouldn't miss this chance. My daughter is going for SR and has promised a full report.
  2. When this festival was announced I had the impression that we would see the three companies in the sections that highlight the unique features of their style. Even though many companies do all three movements (and well!) there's no doubt in my mind that Mr. B was aiming to display three diverse styles that were integral to his own development and the concept of three companies doing their "own" movement was intriguing. Bought tickets for Friday night before casting and program were announced. I've gone back to early press releases and verified that the flip on rubies and diamonds was always part of the plan. I missed the memo on that, otherwise I would have chosen a different performance. So disappointed to miss the Bolshoi take on diamonds. Mearns, Angle et al were superb, but I wanted that chance to see the Russian movement done by the Russian company. As as I said above, rubies was just dreadful. Dorothee Gilbert's first solo was breathtaking. A highlight.
  3. I will run far away from any additional opportunity to see the Bolshoi attempt Rubies. I can't think of a single positive comment.
  4. Extra ticket seeking a new owner. Fourth ring, row D, seat 14. Seated next to me. It's a Society NYCB ticket. (Formerly fourth ring Society). $26!!!!!! PM me.
  5. Hear, hear!
  6. Brilliant! In the open air at Vail. Now, how to make it happen?
  7. Do you mean a new work? I didn't even think of that. My fantasy would be to have him guest with nycb. Not bloody likely I know.....but I can dream, can't I? (Thank you Company B).
  8. My wish: to see Michael Trusnovec dance Apollo.
  9. I hope and expect that some more information is coming very soon. It's nice to hear about all the new projects but what Balanchine will we be seeing?
  10. Oh yes, I see her there too, and in the neighborhood too.
  11. I never walk into the state theater or opera house (even for opera), without thinking of Carley. Missing her so much.
  12. Well, Ballo was made on Merrill Ashley, certainly not a short dancer.
  13. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll probably spring for the full view seat.
  14. Does anyone know if standing room is still offered? I'd love to see Ashley Bouder in what I'm guessing might be her last performances before her maternity leave. But I'd rather not spend $75 in the 4th ring which is all that's available.
  15. Ruthie Ann Miles was truly "something wonderful" as Lady Tiang and well deserving of her best supporting actress Tony. And yet I found Sydney Lucas' s performance so engaging that I could make a strong case for her too. Yes, that good, from an adolescent. I did see Ken Watanabe, and found him to be the weak link in an otherwise outstanding cast. I wish I had the chance to see Jose Llana.
