What do other Boston Ballet goers think?

BB has only done the complete Jewels once or perhaps twice, I believe?
The Ashton Cinderella has only one large flaw to my mind--Cinderella's solos are rather 'tepidly Fonteynish' to quote A. Croce. I'd much prefer Cinderella to match the Prince in virtuosity.

Standouts in the Kylian program were up and coming demi-soloist, Bradley Schlagheck, and corps member, Paul Craig (just back from an injury). Also back from maternity leave is soloist Rie Ichikawa, who always delivers. Corps member, Emily Mistretta, was also featured and did well in the Kylian program. I am not sure where she lands in the Balanchine/Chroma program. One of my other favorites is Altan Dugaraa, especially in contemporary work. There are a few newer members of the company who are being pushed forward, and it remains to be seen if they have what it takes to deliver across the board - in classical, neo-classical and then the contemporary work required at Boston.

Another aspect of the new season announcement is BB's London tour this summer and engagements at the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center after the end of the 2014 season.http://bostonglobe.c...bNaM/story.html
