Ballet in the Summer
Posted 03 July 2002 - 02:13 PM
In NYC, we have the Kirov in town and I believe their curtain rises on Monday. Is anyone planning to attend any of their performances? We'll be there on July 17th at 8pm for Don Quixote. La Bayadere was tempting to me - because I love the Kingdom of the Shades but on the advice of a learned friend , we chose the fun of Don Q. instead - plus I've never seen it besides on a video.
If any other Ballet Alertniks decide to attend, perhaps we could meet between Acts? It can be fun to put some faces to the cyber names.;)

My suggestion for a meeting place/time is the "Kneeling Lady" statue on the Grand Tier level (just at the head of the stairs) at the first intermission. However, I am open to other suggested meeting places/times, and would very much like to meet other Ballet Alertniks.

So if you are coming here, meet me at the first intermission in the upper corner of house right--at the sign that says "14". Meet me there at any performance--I am always there. Except--this year I am unfortunately having surgery at the very end of the season. So I won't be there after July 25, however my daughter will. And we'd both love to meet any of you.
6 more days!

I would LOVE to meet you on the 13th. Specifically--as you come down the hill and face the stage, look to the extreme right for a number "14" on the back of a chair. That is where I will find you, at the first intermission.
Your daughter will adore the NYSSA program. My daughter has many friends who went through the ballet program, she herself did the orchestral program for three years. It is the best training, wonderful instruction, great kids...I can't say enough good things about this.
So glad you enjoyed your mini-trip to Saratoga. We'll make more suggestions when we see you....and I notice that you are just outside of NY. My daughter is starting college in the fall--at Barnard. We are so excited for her!!
See you on the 13th.

rkoretzky and Farrell Fan, I envy you for your time up there...of course, rhkoretzky you actually live in that lovely area!
Maybe next year, we can plan ahead for a nice gathering of the clan.;)

I too mourn the loss of Lou's and Mother's (both owned by the Goldsmith family--did you know that?), but breakfast at Compton's (Lou's replacement) is pretty decent and everyone goes there.
In a more serious vein, I am so sorry for the passing of your wife.
I'll be at every performance that week (gotta go when I can since I'll miss the tail end of the season) and we'll have some great chats I'm sure. You know where to find me.....right?
I'll also be at the Kirov on July 15 (dark day at SPAC) if anyone else will be???
and thanks for the good wishes, FF.. I will be just fine, but I admit I'm nervous.
