Nureyev's Sleeping Beauty seems to be an appropriate opener. There was talk years ago that Kudelka would be mounting his new version of Beauty for this ocassion (this extended further than gossip, it was mentioned in the Globe and Mail) but I am glad that this is not the case.
Overall it looks like a good mix of old and new. Balanchine's Don Quixote is obviously a highlight. Polyphonia should be exciting too. I am not too familiar with the new Feld work (a company premiere) "A Footstep of Air". Can anyone describe it a little? I really enjoyed his "Intermezzo" this season.
It will be nice to have the Erik Bruhn Prize again. There is always so much talent!
Also interesting to note that the season schedule has shifted from Feb. and May to March and June.

I like what's been announced for next season particularly the return of Symphony in C and Opus 1 The Dreamer.
I expect the $30. rush seats will be the ones at the extreme sides of the upper rings.

So it sounds like they will still be the same costumes, but for that much money I'm sure considerable changes will be made. The costumes do look very cumbersome, lets hope that the new ones have some of that weight taken off!

Toronto should see Polyphonia, but it's really becoming the next ballet on the repertory of the National Ballet of Everywhere, isn't it? Right after Jewels.
The Balanchine Don Q is interesting, if not particularly likable. Refurbishing the Nureyev Sleeping Beauty means one thing. There won't be a Kudelka Sleeping Beauty.
I'll sleep better tonight.
