I will be there tonight, and possibly tomorrow to see Aleksandar Antonijevic and Xiao Nan Yu in La Sylphide and the new principal dancers Heather Ogden and Nehemiah Kish in Theme.
Let's hope the weather is cooperative
Anyone else planning on going? Get there early if you want a seat!

It was nice to see several of the dancers who weren't performing in the audience showing their support. I also spotted Nikolaj Hubbe, as he is in town staging La Sylphide. It was almost as enjoyable watching him watching the dancers! (Especially during James' variation).
Unfortunately, from where I was standing, I missed a lot of Nehemiah Kish's batterie.
Both Greta Hodgkinson and Aleksandar Antonijevic were marvellous in Theme and Variations. By that time (it's the last piece on the program), I found a better spot;)
I will stop by tonight too if time allows.

Tanya Howard performed this pdd at a Prokofiev symposium at U of T earlier this year (February?). "Romeo and Juliet before parting" has not been performed at the Hummingbird Centre before.
I hope you enjoy tonight's show and post your opinions on it!

Paquita - were you at the symposium? It was an excellent day, very interesting and such a treat to see the dancers so close.
