It sounds great that this donation will make a revival of The Lady of the Camellias in the theatre's own costumes and sets possible. And a new ballet by Neumeier is a great idea, very much in line with the tradition of the company, who has always had a close relationship with the choreographer. Likewise I'll be looking forward to seeing Jewells with our own dancers, though I could be a little worried if they have enough dancers who can cope with its extremely tough technical challengies.
But why on earth does Hübbe want to replace his own La Sylphide with a new one? It is only 10 years old, and it is a very fine production. I hope it is only a case of renewing the sets for the second act, which are a little non-atmospheric, and not a completely new production (- and hopefully not an updated one, like Napoli and A Folk Tale!).
