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". :(

Ask for Laurie. You may call (210) 226-2891 or email Laurie personally at laurie@artssanantonio.org


I just bought my tickets and I'll be driving down from Arizona (wiht a nice stop-over at my Parent's home in Abq, NM). I got tix for 3 shows: Th, Fri, Sa (matinee) and will decide later if i want to pick up the Sat evening also. I got orch center, row L on thursday, N on Fri/Sat. Looking at the seating chart, those seemed like very good seats. I wasn't sure if i wanted that or to go up to the mezannine. I do like being a bit closer as it's nice to be able to see the dancers' faces and expressions, plus it's nice to be in more of a "sweet spot" for the orchestra.

So any recommendations on (a) place to stay and (b) things to do while not watchign the ballet?

thx

I would try to see Nunoz or Cojucaru.

Does anyone know anything about their tour of Mexico. I have a sister there who I would love to buy a ticket for for a birthday gift. If anyone has input on anyway to order those online I would really appreciate the feedback.

EvilNinja, PM me and I'll "recommend" until the world looks level. :jawdrop:

Here's a link for the Sleeping Beauty performance in Mexico City, Memo. Ticketmaster. :) This is in Spanish, though.

I'm sure all the Auroras will be wonderful but Cojocaru is sublime. Definitely try to see her in this if you can.

I've seen Cojocaru and Nunez as Aurora. Both are really good - it depends on what you like better. If you like your ballerinas waiflike, go for Cojocaru. If you like them stronger (think Ashley Bouder) go for Nunez. It's a real Sleeping Beauty, worth the trip and the money.

I'd second Leigh's descriptions. Either or both would be great to see. But watch the casting closely. The RB may "load"
the first night, as it did in DC last June. Cojocaru did Aurora, Nunez did Lilac Fairy, and (I think) Sarah Lamb did Princess
Florine. Three Auroras in one performance. Hey, it doesn't hurt to watch the casting bulletins!

The cast list says:
The Royal Ballet principals include Alina Cojocaru (July 6th), Mara Galeazzi, Sarah Lamb (July 7th Mat), Viacheslav Samodurov (July 7th Mat), Roberta Marquez (July 7th Eve), Marianela Nuņez, Tamara Rojo (July 5th), Federico Bonelli (July 5th), Johan Kobborg (July 6th), Ivan Putrov (July 7th Eve), Thiago Soares and Edward Watson.

I'm guessing that Marianela Nunez will be Lilac fairy since she's not designated a particular night.
