The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet School writes a letter to the editor thanking those who worked on the troupe's Nutcracker.

The students worked very hard, and each and every one can be proud of their performance. There were more than 140 local students involved in the shows this year. It was an epic undertaking, and the students pulled it off with grace, commitment, dedication and flair. To top it off, it was an amazing experience for those students to work so closely with professional dancers in Aspen's only professional ballet company.

An interview with Martin West about the music for San Francisco Ballet's new season.

"It is many years since the orchestra played Prokofiev’s 'Cinderella,' and I haven’t felt so much anticipation from the orchestra members to play a piece for a long time: fantastically inventive, tuneful, and magical. We have two Stravinsky masterpieces: 'Symphony in Three Movements,' and perhaps most excitingly, 'The Rite of Spring'."
