Thank God above that San Antonio was selected for this gracious gift from Heaven. Forgive my gushing but I'm trying not to hyperventilate at such a wonderful opportunity for our city.

Here's the link to get advance tickets and avoid the ticket "monster". :yucky:

There seems to be a Royal Ballet US Tour shaping up, although I haven't seen a release of the whole thing. They are also at the Mann Center in Philly in July, performing Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake.

The press I've read says they're stopping in only 2 places in the U. S. -- Philadelphia and San Antonio. I believe the tour is mostly focusing on Mexico. They're performing in 3 cities there -- Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Puebla. Wonder why not Monterrey?

Green green green.

What a golden opportunity for those fortunate enough to be in Texas at the time. The stars appearing are the cream of RB's crop. Cojocaru is well known, but Nunez is wonderful (a favorite of mine), and Galeazzi is multi faceted. Kobborg is also well known but don't overlook Soares who is terrific. Enjoy!

Memo, I had to laugh at your predicament! Been there, done that, close to self-mutilation.

Thanks!

Can ya bellieve it!!!!! Its not all bad I will be seeing a RBS end of year performance at the Opera House.
I did see Nunez and Soares at the YAGP Gala last week and I agree she is devine! I would love to see her in a full length ballet and Sleeping Beauty seems like a perfect fit. How exciting for San Antonio. :yucky:

I saw Nunez and Soares in Sleeping Beauty last June when the RB visited Washington DC. I enjoyed the performance very much and would recommend to those that could catch it to do so. I also saw Cojocaru and Kobborg on the same weekend and found them very fine also.
