The Unsung (Limon)/ Chroma (MacGregor) / new Patrick Delcroix

15 Feb - 1 March

Ooh -- The Unsung is back in repertory. And interesting that it's paired with Chroma, since MacGregor studied at the Limon school.

The new Ratmansky Coq d'Or designs look very much like the Diaghilev-era originals by Goncharova. Stunningly rich, colorful, luxurious. No 'El Cheapo' here!


Wouldn't it be great if this ballet eventually makes its way to ABT....in these designs? beg.gif
