Congratulations to both of them.

Does anyone have the special DVD package? Is it worth acquiring?

Just adding a quote from Robert Greskovic's recent (6/29/11?) review of ABT's "Swan Lake" where he applauds them for hopefully educating audiences that the story is not the same as "Black Swan"['s],

"...notion of a nutcase dancer who is driven by an ignorant and pompous director to think of herself as a demonic waterfowl."

Ballet Arizona Principal Dancer Paola Hartley will speak at the Arizona Psychoanalytic Society in, "Black Swan: Film and Psychoanalysis". Her presentation is called "A Dancer's Perspective on Performing Odette/Odile in Tchaikovsky's 'Swan Lake'".

She speaks at 11:45am on 17 September at the Courtyard Marriott, Scottsdale.
