As a teenager I used to go to the Festival Ballet and loved them, I even was a founder member of their Supporters Club. Thank you so much for revoking lovely old memories.

The Drummer Boy Solo. such jaunty music, and the early experience of choreography for the Guys, and the lovely melody of the Sylphide and the Scotsman Pas de deux. This was during the time of my introduction to the world of Ballet, an enjoyment I have cherished for all of my life, and which is still close to my heart today.

The problem with reviving these 'old ballets' is, I suspect, that we think the version we saw was the best! I certainly feel that way about my version by the then named "Ballet Theatre"---the cast included David Lichine, Riabouchinska, Alicia Alonso, Rosella Hightower and the sexiest drummer boy, ever - John Kriza.
and I might add - Eglevsky and Tommy Rall were sometimes cast members......

A colleague of mine was a student of Kriza's at some point, and was so enthusiastic about him I wondered if she could be telling the truth, but apparently she was.
