Years ago Peter Falk came to see us at the Harkness Ballet in LA, he also came backstage, I was fortunate to meet him. With the Penna. Ballet, Christopher Reeve came to see us in Brooklyn NY when we would have a series there. Juliet Prowse also saw us in LA.

Maybe my best sighting was during the Romeo and Juliet this year. I all of a sudden heard a little commotion and turned towards the aisle and saw Allegra Kent walking down the aisle. ... She is as pretty as ever ... .

I've often seen Allegra at ABT, and she is not "as pretty as ever." :smilie_mondieu: She's prettier! :)

A friend of mine was a greeter/bouncer (for lack of a better word) for ABT's donors' lounge for a few years and frequently admitted Jackie Onassis and Maurice Templesman. At Mrs. Onassis' passing she became a bit anxious -- would she recognize Mr. Templesman without her? I'm not sure that ever happened.

Susan Sontag was an NYCB regular during Balanchine's lifetime.

The first hint I had that there was something going on between Darci Kistler and Peter Martins was when I spotted her holding his arm at a Paul Taylor performance. They married a little more than a year later.

Wasn't Madeleine L'Engle an NYCB regular? I know she contributed that piece to the the Tributes book. I saw Kent at one of the Kirov's Balanchine evenings in '99. Lovely indeed.
