I caught part of this on PBS Wed. (competing with Cunningham and Juilliard, at the same time but different PBS channels - is Wed. Culture Night on PBS?) It is a very effective theatrical piece, but - and I've been waiting a long time for the opportunity to say this - Othello, and Lar's story ballets in general, seem "all story and no ballet" to me. His mad gesticulations drive me mad, too.

Mike I don't know if you caught this alternate thread on PBS' airing of Othello or not.

I'm not necessarily suggesting you need to add your post there...but, rather, just letting you know it exists. :cool:

I have now changed my mind on this THREE times (maybe I should get some rest. . .)

Reading through the other thread, I'm closing this one and merging it. And I'm moving that one to this forum :cool:

I've really managed to make the simple sublimely difficult.
