MCB in Chicago
Chicago audiences can expect a real treat. I have seen both Symphony in 3 Movements and Upper Room. Your feet and hands will get tired during the standing ovations.

Anyway, it is the only one on the Chicago program that they're dancing at home this year.
It shares a few steps with the 1953 version, but it is a different ballet. In expanding the male soloist's role "Balanchine seems to have d rained off much of its poignance. Once a ballet about a man and three women, Valse Fantaisie became an extended pas de deux -- actually, two pas deuls -- with a backup group
The original Valse Fantaisie had Diana Adams, Mellissa Hayden and Tanaquil LeClerq, supported by Nicholas Magallanes. Anyone have thoughts about who should dance the ballerina roles? I don't think there is a LeClerq in the company, but -- on the other hand -- I'm not sure whether the 3 roles demand much distinction as to dance personality.
I wonder who'll be doing the Black Swan pdd. I'd give a lot to see Jeanette Delgado (whom I'll bet can sublimate her basically sunny personality) and Rolando Sarabia.
