Here is the program for this year's gala:
Lots of wonderful dancers (notably Legris and Guerin!!), and some gorgeous pieces (I personally love "La Dame") -- it's a shame we don't get to see them more frequently here. And if anyone did see it, please comment. :D

Terry, there's a review of this gala which was part of Hamburg Ballet's "Ballet Days" in the Oct. issue of the British magazine "Dance Expression".

I am delighted that the Hamburg Ballet will tour Hong Kong next March with "Nijinsky", "Lady of the Camellias", and "St. Matthew Passion" as part of its Asian tour.
