He is Boris Eifman."

I can't wait for your 'take' on this, Alexandra. This will be your first time seeing this group, right? Clear mind - clean slate! ;)

You don't have to go to the Sahara to know what it's like. :)

True, but if someone gave me a ticket and a tent, I'd be curious enough to check it out :)

I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing Eifman, and I'm glad the company is coming here. There's a lot of dance that bypasses DC -- Pina Bausch, Nederlands Dance Theatre, for two. We get lots of American modern dance, but very little European contemporary dance, or midrange ballet companies, and I hope that will change.

It's interesting that the Warner is a musicals house. It's where the Washington Ballet shows its children's programs, and there are pop music concerts there as well. So they're not going after the ballet audience, but a general audience.
