    ABT 2018 Giselle

    I’m so glad she is getting these opportunities. It is especially gratifying to see someone who joined the JKO school at a relatively young age doing well in the company.

    2018 Met Season

    I’ve never understood why theatres charge fees for buying online and printing tickets at home. It seems like it would be much more convenient for them than having lines of people at the box office.
  4. Ooh, Sunday has the benefit of both new principals and potentially lighter traffic. I think we have a winner!

    2018 Met Season

    Isabelle Boylston just posted an Instagram video of her rehearsing with Kimin Kim, so he is officially “in the house.”

    We’d love that here in Orange County!

    ABT in Detroit, Feb. 8-11, 2018

    In his Instagram story Patrick Frenette posted a copy of those safety rules and wrote something about how they went from the Fairmont in D.C. to this. I’m not a snob, but if a review says, “not the dirtiest hotel I’ve visited,” I try to stay away.

    ABT in Detroit, Feb. 8-11, 2018

    Just a thought, but perhaps they could have checked the list of hotels recommended on the Michigan Opera Theatre website. Seems like a pretty obvious start.

    Potential Strike By ABT Dancers

    I got blocked by the NYT paywall. When the photo of the up-until-2am negotiations was posted to Instagram, Misty was the one dancer I couldn’t see.

    Gomes and ABT

    I don’t know Aran Bell’s exact height, but he is quite tall. Definitely not 5’9”. I saw him at the Nutcracker cast party and I’d say he’s in the 6’ range.

    Gomes and ABT

    When he played the Mouse King in Nutcracker he sometimes didn’t run across the backs of the other rats because the two men/rats responsible for kind of lifting him to do that couldn’t manage it. He’s a big, strong guy.

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    It protects everyone to have rules in place that prohibit bosses from dating or sleeping with their subordinates. Some companies allow these relationships but HR must be notified. It seems ridiculous on the surface but it really does offer a level of protection. My husband worked for a company where the (married) president was having an affair with an employee. When he broke it off she got a lawyer and sued the company claiming sexual harassment. It was cheaper and easier to pay her off than to go to court.

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I’m not suggesting anyone hang him for it now, but if is the case that Martins or any other adult male in a position of power was engaging in relationships with minors at the school, that is surely something parents would want to be made aware of. And certainly, as a parent, something I would want to know if I were considering sending my teenage daughter to study at the school.
