It looks like Stowell's strategy might be the same here as for Swan Lake: present the big party scene with lots of divertissements and the big pas de deux and variations for a first viewing. For Swan Lake, this will turn into a full-length the following season (this June).

I've never seen Swan Lake's Act III on its own, but it should work as a suite of divertissements. I just don't know how you would deal with the Rothbart factor, the apparition of Odette, or bringing it to a satisfying conclusion. When it's part of the full ballet, you don't need the big dance for the full company. It's a cliff-hanger
I am really, really sorry. I just couldn't think of another way to state it. :giveup:

I don't remember what else was on the program in Fall of '04, but the audience seemed to think SL Act III stood on its own very well, including the cliffhanger ending.

I'm really looking forward to the full production.
