I am told that the company departs for Scotland tomorrow. If anyone is going to the performances, can you fill us in when you return? Unfortuantely, I am unable to attend but would love to hear how it all went. I think this is an exciting venture for PABallet and I only hope this leads to many more international tours for the company. I am also hoping that they can possibly make it out to the West Coast in the near future. I have season tickets to the OCPAC and would love to see them perform for our So Ca. audiences sometime soon. :)

Yes, the company leaves tomorrow for Edinburgh...Merd !

There will be three casts of principles for the 6 performances.....Rio Lama Lorenzo with Zachery Hench, Arantxa Ochoa with James Ady and Julie Diana with Yury Yanowsky who is guesting from Boston Ballet.

Would so love to be there....hope those that will be attending will report in!

I see on the Edinburgh Festival site that all of the PA Ballet shows of Swan Lake have sold out. The PA ballet site contains a link to daily blogs and photos from Scotland. Please, anyone who is attending, send a review our way.

Here's a link to the Festival's website, with two very short clips of Swan Lake.

(Hope I do this correctly!)

I just want to say how much I appreciated the daily blogs, photos and radio commentary from Edinburgh. I am very excited for the company and can't wait to see them perform in PA in Sept/October. Bravo!!

I have now had time to digest all of the reviews and it sounds like PABallet had a very successful tour to Scotland. From what I read, they were sold out everyday and in fact were turning away up to 300 people for every performance. I just wish I could have been in Scotland to see this magical experience. WRTI did a fabulous job of covering the event, with live broadcasts everyday. PABallet also did a wonderful job keeping their site up to date with Blogs, photos and press releases. If anyone went and has any pictures to share via Snapfish or another on line service. please let me know. Kudos PABallet...you are indeed deserving of this wonderful reception that you received in Scotland. I hope this leads to many more performances abroad. :off topic: :)

If anyone was able to attend PABallet's performances in Scotland and has any info or pictures to share with us, I would love to hear all about it. Especially after reading all of the wonderful reviews, I am sooooooooooooo sorry that I was unable to go :unsure:
