Sometimes I end up buying "behind the conductor" seats, and every year intend to write down which ABT conductor is tall and therefore blocks half the stage from view, but every year I forget. :wallbash:

If I am not mistaken, one of ABT regular conductors is a really tall gentleman and I never want to sit behind him again. The other two are much shorter and do not really interfere with my enjoyment of the performance.

Does anybody know what their names are and who is who?

Thanks in advance :helpsmilie:

David Lamarche, one of the conductors, is a friend, and he is not taller than me (I'm about 5'9")

Disregard my post below. I confused NYCB and ABT for a (senior) moment!

Clotilde Otranto is a tiny dynamo.
Her she is with Darci Kistler:
