Thanks, amitava. The slide show of photographs is striking and dramatic. The company looks mature and very, very secure.

Ballet Talk used to have regular posters from Houston, but things seemed to have quieted down in the past few years. Did anyone attend this mixed bill? A program of Kudelka, van Manen and Welch doesn't sound like the old Ben Stevenson days. I think that many would be interested in impessions about how Welch is doing and about the changes he has made.

I notice that the last program of the season premieres tomorrow, Thursday, June 5: La Sylphide plus Welch's Doll's House, with music by Istvan Marta. It would be very interesting to hear about that, too!
