re. ABT Swan Lake - It just dawned on me...Didn't ABT bring Swan Lake to the Kennedy Center just three seasons ago, when the DVD was filmed?
The Kennedy Center is really Thinking Outside the Box this time.

I would have loved to have seen Sylvia. Depending on casting, I may skip Swan Lake and double up on tickets for the Farrell bill with Liebeslieder Walzer, which I've never seen live, and Episodes, which I've never seen at all. And in regards to Episodes, I suppose it's pretty unlikely, but it would be just like Farrell and the way she's used her company to resurrect rarities, for her to work with Paul Taylor and with the Martha Graham folks to bring back that original choreography.
The Kirov has come under fire for its offerings at Kennedy Center but ABT is just as guilty. It has performed Swan Lake there a lot in the last few years, yet could have done Raymonda or Syvia - both new productions.

(I'm clapping because I'm excited to have them both here in the same season!) I'm really interested to see Corsaire!
