Susan: My best ballet experience of 2003 (and in fact of all time) was with my husband too! This was seeing the rehearsal of "Mesmerics" by George Piper Dances at a Sadlers Wells rehearsal studio in London. Just my husband, me and a friend sitting in the corner watching the five dancers work with Christopher Wheeldon for 3 hours. About 1/2 way through my friend had to leave, she had to go to an interview with Matthew Bourne. I asked my husband if he wanted to leave also, thinking he would be completely "done" But he said no, wanted to stay to the end. He usually hates ballet.

:yes: What will I remember fr. 2003?!!!!!!?
1. A great performance of "Fancy Free" with Carreno, Cornejo, and Radevsky.
The whole cast was just totally into their characters. :yes:
2. Kudos to a performance of "Fancy Free", at the State Theater, by the Dance
Theatre of Harlem. Thanks to both casts and companies for giving this work new life!!!!!!!!! :yes: :
3. Carlos Acosta at the APEX of his Cabriole in his 2nd Coda in Raymonda, at City
Center. What elevation, balon and form!!!!!!!!!! : :D :
4. Herman Cornejo in just about anything I saw. Esp. in Ashton's Dream and La Fille Mal Gardee. :yes:
5. La Fille Mal Gardee: With Nina Aniashvilli and Maxim Beleterkowski.
:yes: :
6. Alina Coceacu in Bayadere with Corella. A great match. Alina is soooooo tiny..
but sooooo strong. She has the least displacement in her hips during arabeques, &
"high leg lifts to the sides", I have seen in years. Amazing. ( sorry about spelling &
terminology) :yes:

My 2003 highlight: Multiplicité by Nacho Duato. Kept us (my wife and I) on the edge of our seat. Beautyfull.
