DD just called to say that she had bought tix for Esmeralda on Easter Sunday (31 March) . Bolshoi is fine with us, the screening will be at 5 p.m. here, quite decent hour, whereas Met is not so convenient from our point of view. No way we would have spent money on Rite of Spring, if it comes to that we would be able to see it live at our opera house. But neither DD nor I are fans of Rite of Spring. We are very much looking forward to Easter Sunday and I do hope that everyone seeing that screening will post their impressions.

In an interview published yesterday, McGregor says he no longer plans to stage a Rite for the Bolshoi. The "moment has passed," and the company now has a different version in its repertoire. He does plan to stage one of his works for the company in 2015, but won't say which one.

I'm sorry to hear this -- as a Sacre geek, I'm always curious to see what people do with the score.
