It was a glorious night at the Opera House. Hard to pick just one favorite. In the first half, Damian Smith in Aria and Frances Chung and Taras Domitro in Flames of Paris stick out in my mind. In the second half, the trio of men in Solo Gennadi Nedvigin, Garen Scribner, and Hansuke Yamamoto) and Maria Kochetkova and Joan Boada in Voices of Spring. What a vision when Joan had Maria lifted as she scattered petals!! And I was very happy to see Solo again. I first saw the piece at the final performances of Stephen Legate, Yuri Possokhov, and Peter Brandenhoff - what a tour de force for the men who dance it!!

Can't wait for the regular season to begin. Onegin on 2/1!!!
