Nice solid programming -- I'm envious of the Monumentum, and the Ratmansky Carnival.

I loved the "Monumentum"/"Movements" the company did to end the 2010-11 season, just gorgeous. I admit to dismay at seeing "Western Symphony" on the schedule, but I know they can do it, and casting it in my head brings a smile to my face, even if I don't like the ballet.

The "Director's Choice" program is also the opportunity to see what Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's Alejandro Cerrudo does for a ballet company before the Nureyev Prize commission for PNB the following season.

I'm chagrined -- that had slipped my notice!

It's hard to keep reading after "Ratmansky." It's easier when you're typing it :)
