Anyone expecting a cocky character at Mr. Stiefel’s farewell performance at the Metropolitan Opera House on Saturday night, though, might have been surprised.

Alastair Macaulay on a triple bill at the Royal Ballet:

Not only three dissimilar aspects of ballet, but also three unconnected segments of society were on display in the program presented last week by the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden here. I watched three of the performances in a state of choreographic intoxication.

The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival will present a film called "My Dad is Baryshnikov": (scroll down)

Set in the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in 1986, the film revolves around scrawny young Borya Fishkin (Dmitry Vyskubenko), a day-dreaming no-goodnik who, although he can barely lift an aspiring ballerina, knows how to milk a bow with such grand balletic affectation that the Queen of Spain laughs out loud at his antics and tells Fishkin's horrified school principal that the boy deserves to dance with the Bolshoi!
