After the rancor of the beginning of the new season, when PBT decided to use recorded music rather than live to save $- an agreement was reached with the musicians' union. Two of 5 of next season's ballets will be performed with live music. The musicians are donating their services at the gala opening of "Coppelia" tonight. The musicians agreed to withdraw an unfair labor practice claim.
Let's hear it for the spirit of cooperation!

It was so nice to hear live music again! The orchestra will be back next season for Swan Lake and A Balanchine Series which will consist of Allegro Brilliante, Theme and Variations, and Who cares....VERY exciting!
