Oddly enough, I remember "Capriccios". It was shortly after I arrived in New York as a 16 yr. old ballet hopeful. Somehow I scraped together, I think $3.00 for a ticket. It was at the Center Theater in Rockefeller Center, 1950? now long, long gone. It was my first seeing of Ballet Theater. I must have seen you dance. I seem to remember girls holding chairs over their heads. Ring a bell? I remember also on program a Tudor ballet but forgot the title. Took place on a roof it seems, a tenement roof on a hot summer night. I asked Tudor about it many years later when I was with ABT but he typically just grunted.

i wonder if the Tudor at the Center Theater could have been NIMBUS, a work about which i know nothing.

Nimbus: Chor: Antony Tudor; mus: Louis Gruenberg (Concerto for violin and orch.); scen: Oliver Smith; cos: Saul Bolasni. First perf: New York, Center Theatre, May 3, 1950, Ballet Theatre.
