Maillot has given Noelani Pantastico and Lucien Postlewaite leave to dance a performance of his "Romeo et Juliette" in Seattle the weekend before the City Center run. I'm not sure if they'll dance the work in NYC as part of this tour. Korbes and Nakamura were also phenomenal in it the last time it was performed in Seattle. Postlewaite was Korbes partner; I'm not sure who her partner will be now that Postlewaite is a member of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo.

I am concerned that the seats at City Centre will render viewing impossible. Has anyone sat in the back of the orchestra since the renovation?

Re: "Serenade": From the tiny computer screen and blurry video, as well as the "Swan-lookalike-which one is she effect," I cannot tell which women at the end become the (a) "ascending one who can't be saved by 'Orpheus'/ the dying woman" and (b) the "Dark Angel/'Amour'/winged guide who covers the man's eyes." Are they identifiable in the beginning? Also, is there a "Myrtha" type women leading the group which displays the "underwater Wili-type" movements?
Re: "C": In the new costumes, the men no longer appear like harlequins. Does this impact the interpretation for anyone?

here's the order for the '90 film, in which Kistler leads the Waltz (and is carried off at the end); Nichols is the Tema Russo (middle section); and Calegari is the "blinding angel" of the final, Elegie section:
Serenade (ca. 34 min.) / music, Peter Tchaikovsky ; costumes, Barbara Karinska ; danced by Darci Kistler, Kyra Nichols, Maria Calegari, Adam Lüders, Leonid Kozlov, with Marisa Cerveris, Lisa Jackson, Miriam Mahdaviani, Kathleen Tracey, and ensemble.
if your questions relate to the Berlin film, that data can be found but is not now at hand here.

Serenade. Music: Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky. Danced by Karin von Aroldingen, Susan Hendl, Sara Leland, Kay Mazzo, Jean-Pierre Bonnefous, Peter Martins, and artists of the New York City Ballet.
i had forgotten until digging up these credits that it was filmed w/ four ballerinas. if mem. serves von Aroldingen in is the 'blinding angel" Bonnefous is the man being led in the Elegie.
i forget who, among Hendl, Leland, and Mazzo, led the Sonatina, Waltz and Tema Russo.

Did you watch these on YouTube? What is the symphony in C you watched? I've never found a full-out production of it anywhere... Thanks for any info, puppytreats.

Back to topic, would you like meet during one of the intermissions at the matinee on Saturday (I seem to remember you are going to both performances...)? If you don't, I understand. Being very new to BA, I know no one so I'm not sure if any of you get together or visit when you happen to be at the same performance. I'm not registered for the 1:40pm lecture and don't think I can make that one, but I do have a tkt to the demo 5-6pm.
I've been dipping into Nancy Goldner's fun books, too, and depending on how I feel, I may indeed take in the eve performance....
