I've already seen some of these pieces at the Paris Opera
(Agon, The 4 Temperaments, Serenade, Concerto Barocco, Palais de Cristal), and loved them very much, but they don't dance it often ("Symphony in 3 movements" and "Dances at a gathering" are in their repertory too, but they haven't danced
it in a while). All that sounds very exciting! Now I hope that it's still possible to find not too expensive hotels in Edinburgh for that period, the city must be quite crowded with such
a big festival...

Although the stage at the Playhouse is big,I'm surprised to learn that it is the biggest stage in Britain, but I bow to Eugene's superior knowledge.
Anyway, my impression after several visits is that the sightlines in the theatre are generally quite good, so getting a reasonable view shouldn't be too difficult. I seem to recall the balcony is pretty good. But back balcony would be quite some way from the stage. Circle is excellent if you can manage it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy both NYCB and the city.

web site, and it seems that it's already full on those nights.
By the way, two things are missing on the Festival web site: a plan of the theaters (to know where the categories of seats are), and also a city map...
Actually I've already been to Edinburgh once, for one week in August 1998, for a math conference- the weather was absolutely awful (even my thesis supervisor, who is from Glasgow, agreed),
but the city really looked nice.

and 19 matinee (front balcony seats) (and we'll be staying at a youth hostel ).
Thanks to all of you for your help. If some Ballet Talkers plan to attend these performances, I'd be glad to meet them!
