And Holy Camille Saens is Camille Saint-Saens? :)

Sure, the translation is cool, but I did learn something: a PDD is not of two, which certainly helps explain the Corsaire PDD when you see it in the context of the whole ballet. More seriously, the program really looked interesting and I hope someone who attended will give a report.
From surfing French sites I have the sense that Luccia Lacarra dominated, especially in the Thais. They also loved her in Prisonniere ("Captive"), which she'd performed at the Valentine's Day Gala in NYC, but her Thais brought comparisons to Fonteyn! The two other most cited performances were the Royal's Sylvia by Yanowsky/Bonelli, and Irina and Max in Paquita. Dvorovenko and Beloserkovsky were variously complimented for their technical perfection and for Irina's beauty. This bodes well for the City Center season, especially if she has more to do than the single PDD that is listed so far.
Hopefully a DVD of the performance, since it was recorded for a broadcast circa Christmas (Arte).
