Othello on PBS

3 posts in this topic

Anyone catch SFB in Othello last Wednesday? It was so beautiful, as far as bloody tragedies go that is. I absolutely love Yuan Yuan Tan! Her feet are gorgeous and her legs just go on and on for miles! And she contrasted well with Desmond Richardson, I thought. He's very built and she's so wispy and delicate.

I've not been exposed to much contemporary ballet before. It was far different from anything I've seen before. Classical steps, many of them, but not really classical at all. The pas de deux right before Othello kills Desdemona was breathtaking. I have to say I've never seen anyone murder their wife quite so lovingly.

I don't get out to many live ballets, since I live in a rural area, so thank God for PBS, right?

If you go to the forum for American Ballet Companies, San Francisco Ballet, you will see a topic on Othello on PBS, which is into it's second page of posts! I'm closing this one, as it is a duplicate topic :o
