I will be taking a brief trip to NYC to witness Osipova's debut in the role.  I'm bringing along my French friend and a common friend of us, so...I was thinking ...how about having a drink after the performance and gossip a little about it..? A while ago Natasha, Carbro, Jack Reed and myself went across the Lincoln Center to the hotel where Natasha was staying and had a drink there, and we had a great time! How about repeating it...? flowers.gif  It is always so nice to put faces behind the well known screen names! Just let me know either here or via PM if you  would like to do so.  I'm very excited about this performance!

 

Hugs:

 

Cristian.

 

 

 

It's my understanding that Osipova is out of the Saturday "Sylvia" as well.  Reyes is dancing.

Cristian will have to cheer for his fellow cubana, then.

I'm sick and tired of this situation.  Last time I made arrangements to see Osipova in Bayadere, was the same...I ended up with Part.  Now, after months planning this trip, here comes again the non show.

 

I changed the name of the thread from Osipova to Reyes.  Poor Xiomara seems to have the "filler" tag in her forehead.  I will be cheering my fellow Cuban anyway, definitely.

Those of us who lived through the Kirkland era can empathize! You held your breathe through that first announcement, hoping she hadn't cancelled (again). At least you know ahead of time.

I know how you feel.  Every year my wife gives me a ballet ticket for my birthday.  Usually I give her a list of choices for May or June in New York or Boston and let her pick, but this year I said, "I want to see Osipova in Sylvia!", and that's what I got.  Or not, as it turns out.  But it should be a good experience anyway.  I'll see on Saturday.

Cristian, just a reminder: it was Vishneva who cancelled that time. Osipova danced (as Gamzatti) as planned that time.

At least with Ms Osipova - she seems to be truly injured.  Wtih Ms Kirkland it was her love affair with colombian marching powder.

Which in the eyes of many qualifies as an illness, though not an injury...

(Not claiming to have been happy about the cancellations...who ever is?)

Reyes debut was actually tonight. I thought she acquitted herself quite well all things considered

That's correct Birdsall, it was Vishneva who was injured for Bayadere.  Perhaps cubanmiamiboy

is thinking of the following week, when Osipova was injured and was replaced by Bolyston in Bright Stream.

You guys are right.   Same performance-(Bayadere)-different Russian diva-(Vishneva).   I must say that in that event I was very happy to see Part as Nikiya, particularly during the white act.  Reyes is 40 already-(is she the oldest at ABT...?)-, and I have a thing for the mature ballerina, which usually gives certain depth to performances in absence of fireworks.  In any case, I know she can still turn like a 20 something.  I'm happy anyway to see her now that she must be toward the end of her career. 

 

Anway...the gathering proposal is still being offered!  So, this is me down below, for ID matters.
