I posted my impression of tonight's Giselle but on a separate thread I opened. I assume Helene will move it over here but for now it is there. It is less enthusiastic than Ilya.

If I were in NYC, I wouldn't care how good "The Flames of Paris" is: I would rush to see those ballerinas.

I think that to a large extent the financial success of the Mik's tour to NYC hinged on Osipova's participation. Her name sells lots of tickets. Who knows if the Royal Ballet would be willing to allow her to participate again in a future Mik tour. Frankly, I'm surprised they are allowing her to appear at ABT this Spring. The RB administration appears to be pretty lenient and flexible in this regard, at least at the current time.

I imagine it's all in her contract, and I doubt it's a standard issue one.
