Calendar

7 posts in this topic

One of the many things that Helene does for this site is to post our Calendar. Click the Calendar Link at the top of the board (Forums Members Calendar Blogs) and you will find ballet performances from around the world posted day by day. This is a great way to keep up with what's being performed this month or week, whether for practical reasons -- you're planning a trip to Kansas City -- or just to know what's going on. It's also a great way to find ballet performances to talk about on this thread, which is why I posted this notice here.

This must take weeks to do, Helene, and we are all very grateful.

HEAR! HEAR! to expressions of gratitude to Helene for her magnum calendar opus, to which end i attach scans of bells from old Moscow, and to which, if i were more tech savvy, i wish i were able to attach appropriate sound effects.

(to anyone unfamiliar with the Kremlin's historic sites, the great bell, complete w/ cracked fragment that resulted from damage occured during in its founding as it was intended to be the largest such bell in the world. it can be seen in situ, in the foreground, beneanth the tallest of the towers in the long-range shot of the Tower of Ivan the Great.)

I have always found the calendar invaluable as it has helped me keep a number of friends and colleagues

informed of performances of works that are of interest to them.

Thank you Helene.

I just want to add my thanks. It's wonderful to be able to see what is happening, and as someone who occasionally plans trips to Boston and San Francisco, it's wonderful to have that at my fingertips. I want to add my thanks to all of you who keep this going. It's an amazing, informative and civilized place.
