    ABT 2018 Giselle

    I am just guessing given his status in international ballet and at this stage of his career. Dropping your partner is probably a cardinal sin that a male dancer can commit, but Bolle has such a solid reputation as one of the best partners, so I don't think that many believe Forsyth's statement. I am just a fan, it bothers me more, I can't tolerate "alternative fact" 😪

    I was watching through my binoculars, yes it was very fast, but I didn't see that he stood in her way. He put her down and she continued her fast running to the side, then I heard a thud but I didn't see her fall. I was sitting at the 1st row of the grand tier, fairly center (my own seat was to the side, but there was an empty seat so I sat in it for act II), the fact I didn't see her trip and fall, to me, means that she did it while in the wing, at the same time, he was standing on the stage. In any event, it was an accident, and she danced beautifully after that 👍 He didn't drop her and they didn't crash into the wing together.

    Found a review on Bolle/Seo on May 19, the author claimed that "at one moment Bolle dropped his ballerina when she was set to exit on stage left. From what I could tell, the pair crashed into the wing." https://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwdance/article/BWW-Review-ABTs-Staging-of-GISELLE-Offers-Superb-Dancing-but-Misses-the-Mark-During-the-Iconic-Mad-Scene-20180520 Excuse me? Did she have eye sight problem? Roberto Bolle probably doesn't care, but it doesn't give her the right to state falsehood!! Can't believe they call themselves "critics"! I wrote to broadwayworld.com and gave them a piece of my mind and truth 😎

    I flew into NYC just to see Bolle's performance last night, what a performance it was! I can't believe how great he looks physically, he commands such a stage presence just by standing there. Compared to his 2005's Giselle with Zakharova (DVD), I see very little deterioration technically, maybe a slight amount of balloon in the jumps, but his landings are so soft and silent, I don't know how he does it. I tried to count how many entrechats but I applauded too much and lost count 😋. It was a magical night for me anyway. The way he is going, he can dance another 3 years at very high level I hope. I have never given too much focus on the acting part, after all it is a dance performance and the emotions were supposed to be conveyed via the music and dance, but I was impressed by both their acting last night (facial and body). Hee Seo was lovely also, although I wished slight higher extensions. Don't know if anyone noticed, the big bouquet of lilies in the 2nd act were real, I think his fan club sends the flowers every time Roberto performances Giselle, anywhere in the world. I went to the stage door with a crowd of fans, he came out after 20 minutes so or, smiling, very modest and approachable, signed many autographs and took many selfies, including mine 😋😍

    Wow, you saved me Susan, thanks so much! Also thanks for the review of last night's performance. I am going for Bolle/Seo Saturday night performance, it will be the first time I ever go to the Met (from Denver), really excited!

    I am considering exchanging my grand tier ticket (1st row, pretty far to the right) to orchestra Row G, the first seat of the aisle section. I am short, but is this seat pretty good in terms of the person in front won't matter since you are looking to the side? Is G too close to see dancers' feet?

    2018 Met Season

    I find Hallberg has pleasing lines, but his dancing is a bit too effeminate to me, especially his arms and hands.
