Has anyone seen it yet? We'll be at the January 19 matinee.

Anna Kisslegoff loved it. Can't wait to see it myself and am interested in any opinions.

I had the pleasure of seeing it at last year at the SAB workshop performances and loved it - and I don't think I was prejudiced by the fact that my cousin's daughter was in it! If memory serves me well, it was my favorite that night and the dancers appeared to love every minute of it! Melissa Barak seems to be a very talented and creative young woman.

It would be interesting to note the differences between the SAB performance and the NYCB's...

Whenever I have seen the Spring Workshop performances they've been full of electricity and joy. smile.gif

Having seen it with both SAB and NYCB, I can say that I think it's very nice, pleasant, and competent. She makes good use of her dancers, and it's not boring. I don't think it's a masterpiece for the ages, but a credible and worthy addition to NYCB's repertory.
