What have we seen live onstage?-(XIX Cent. Ballet Poll)
Posted 07 February 2013 - 12:09 AM
No. It is the XIX century heritage what I'm mostly counting here.

1786, and I thought about including it, but..I wanted to stick to the XIX Century. Still...a very attractive option, IMO.
Has anybody seen it...?

Yes - just like some of the characters in Far From Denmark! This sort of thing is not so offensive if the viewer realizes that it was in no way intended as an offense 100+ years ago.

This doesn't surprise me at all -- I don't know about a census, but I have the sense that Swan Lake is in many more repertories than Giselle at this point.

True -- I've seen a number of road show Swans, but not too many touring Giselle's.

I know...that's why I put that "none of them" option in the last group, because the system forces you to cast a vote in each of the groups. Thing is, I would had been forced to eliminate one ballet from the first group, and now it is too late, because it would delete all the votes from that particular ballet. Perhaps I wrongly assumed that "Giselle" was the secure choice for everybody.

Formerly known by a better name- oops another grumpy Sunday moment -

Oh, how I agree. Privately, I still call it the better name! IMO, a truly cultured philanthropist would have insisted on no name change.
