Loved, loved, loved "lady of camellias"! I am so glad I was able to see it! Questions: At some point of the performance, one of the extras carried a vintage looking bag I thought I recognized... Does anybody know how to get in touch with the production/producers of this performance? I would like to track down that prop. Thank you!!!

The pianist was wonderful. (I don't have my program to identify him by name.)


His name is Koji Attwood and he's tremendous. I hope he starts getting better known; he deserves it. He's a great transcriber too, he did transcriptions of Schubert's Death and the Maiden and Tarrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra which are fabulous.


Actually, Soheil Nasseri was the pianist onstage in Acts 1 and 2 and also for all of act 3 from the orchestra pit. Koji Attwood played Acts 1 and 2 from the pit.

Actually, Soheil Nasseri and Koji Attwood divided up the piano part fairly equally, Mr. Nasseri performing all of Act 3 as well as the onstage parts.

Embarrassing. There's a reason this ballet in performed infrequently.


Stuttgart, Hamburg, Paris and now ABT.....yeah, that's infrequent. :wallbash:
