Introducing myself A New(Ex. Professional)MemberBallet Journey - From Backstage to Audience
Posted 20 February 2008 - 03:55 PM
I am now retired, but occasionally still write or design for Ballet, however, my pleasure these days is to just watch listen to the mucic and enjoy my favourite interest. Over the years there has been a number of dancers I have admired, some of who are in other peoples profiles. It is really great to read names like Svetlana Beriosova, Anya Linden, Margot Fonteyn, Nureyev, as well as recent and todays Stars. It is good to hear other people of my generation are still there, enjoying their Ballet.
Whenever I can I like to go and see live performances, and will be going to The Opera Garnier, in Paris next July, to see Les Dame aux Camelias., I had hoped to see Aurelie Dupont dance in it, but she may still be on Maternity leave, so will have to choose someone else.
When I cannot get to the theatre, I have a large collection of Ballet DVD's, which I watch on my wide screen TV, it is like going to the cinema in my lounge.

Nanarina, I know that there will be people who will be able to respond to your thoughts and questions about the current POB season. Unfortunately, we don't currently have a forum devoted to individual companies. What I suggest is that you start a new thread on "Everything Else Ballet" and give it a title that will catch the eye of those who know the most about the POB today.
Hello bart: Thank you for your suggestion I will post to Everything else about Ballet, for the POB Cast etc.
