Yesterday I received a brochure for ABT's new "Trio" subscriptions. The cover had a photograph of dancers in the new Raymonda costumes. It is available as a pdf on their website:

http://www.abt.org/p...io_brochure.pdf

Between the new costumes, the description of the ballet as "...a beautiful young women's struggle to choose between Jean de Brienne and the Saracen Knight...", the posts regarding ABT's poor performances of the Grand Pas in DC and my recollections of their sketchiness at City Center, I'm kind of afraid of what McKenzie & Holmes have in store for us this spring

Why can't anyone be satisfyed with reviving a masterpiece in it's traditional form anymore? :thumbsup:
