"Manon" in Mariinsky
Posted 26 April 2000 - 11:17 AM
Interesting that the Russian criticisms of "Manon" are exactly what the American and British criticisms were.
Thank you for the explanation of "Balanchine linoleum." I had no idea it should be taken so literally (I don't think Balanchine can really be blamed for the marly floor, though.)
I think all of us will look forward to reading what you saw and what you thought of it. Thank you!

"The Maryinsky company dances Manon better than the Royal Ballet does. This is how matters stand - and think what you will about me...The Maryinsky has extraordinary dancers who perfectly understand the connections among choreography, drama and emotion and they wonderfully put this connection into practice...."
