NYCB's $9M Media Control Center Is Idle
Posted 28 November 2011 - 06:50 AM
Here's a link to an article in today's NY Times regarding a media center that would enable NYCB to do high def broadcasts. However, NYCB is not making use of it,for reasons discussed in the article. The most amusing part of this is where a NYCB stagehands rep states that City Opera wanted the facility, and a City Opera official flat out denies that assertion. Life seems to move at a glacial pace on some issues over at NYCB, but on others (like kicking people out of the fourth ring so that half their usual audience is gone on most rep nights) it was full steam ahead.

Of course, if they produce bad video, which is very easy to do, it might NOT inspire live performance support.

True. I wouldn't want to see ballet after watching the Miami City Ballet broadcast (due to the very poor editing) but would after the Bolshoi. Note to Dance in America directors/editors - notice how the Bolshoi showed one extended shot for the solos. That's what we want to see when principals dance.
