  1. I checked into purchasing tickets at the discount price and you cannot choose your seat, though you can choose a generic location. I suspect that they will fill these orders in after the subscription seats are assigned.
  2. 2017-18 Season

    Dallas as well? This is great! Any idea as to what theatre in Dallas?
  3. The pirouette that went awry in Emeralds was a finger pirouette from fouetté en dehors and not a "supported" pirouette. Her handsome partner's hand slipped away and Gilbert miraculously releveed straight up, twice, to save it. It was an amazing save. She is a beautiful, musical dancer.
  4. Nureyev premier postponed to 2018/2019

    I go every year right after Christmas and I do not recall any singing during the snow scene at SFB.
  5. Veronika Part leaving ABT

    I can't say that the change in caption is any less heartbreaking to me than the earlier one. But I hope she continues to dance - she is just too beautiful and should not be stopping because of ABT's idiocy.
  6. Then/Now photos

    Oh, canbelto, these comparison photos are a delight!
  7. SFB 2017-18 season

    Thanks, Pherank. I was hoping to get in all the new works in one fell swoop.
  8. ABT 2017 Tchaikovsky Spectacular

    Memorable for many reasons.
  9. Nicolas Le Riche Royal Swedish Ballet AD

    Thanks, volcanohunter and silvermash, for the information!
  10. Nicolas Le Riche Royal Swedish Ballet AD

    Eleonora Abbagnato, director of the Rome Opera Ballet, is currently an etoile of the Paris Opera Ballet (and is not a former etoile). Who from POB is in Madrid? Wonderful news about Le Riche!
  11. Veronika Part: divided opinions?

    Edward King is British.
  12. Fall 2017 Season

    I don't think Millepied is twiddling his thumbs all that much. His company, L.A. Dance Project, is currently in residence in Arles and has performances scheduled throughout the coming season. http://www.ladanceproject.com/new-events/
  13. ABT 2017 Onegin

    Practicing fouettes in a classroom is different from performing them on stage, due to the lighting and spatial awareness, particularly an awareness of the audience out there in the dark auditorium. You can predict that a problem will arise if the dancer's weight is back, as it is very hard for a dancer en pointe to correct this while turning (I saw this with Skorik in Black Swan a few years ago.) The darkness of the auditorium can push your weight back and so you need to practice fouettes on stage.
  14. SF Ballet Announces 2017–18 Roster

    So excited about these three wonderful dancers joining LA Dance Project!
