Welcome to the SVP fan club!
She's an interesting, musical and very lovely Odette, as well as an excellent Tatiana in Onegin.
The last time the Company performed Giselle, I was sitting next to an elderly woman who told me that when her husband retired, they traveled all over the world and always saw whatever ballet was available, especially Giselle. And, she said, SVP's was the best Giselle she had seen in 20 years. Although I thought her first act was pretty standard issue, the second act was sublime: I don't think I've ever seen anyone so completely weightless (helped immeasurably by Tiit Helimets strong partnering). I already saving my retirement pennies to see her performances next season.
I hope we hear more of your impressions, Terez. I haven't been able to get to many performances this year, so I'm very grateful for all the comments here and on the SFB threads; really makes me feel like I'm there (and sad to hear what I've missed!).
