  1. People keep comparing this in commentaries in media to Sophie's choice but didn't Sophie kill herself
  2. I did see an Alonso Giselle yesterday and she was the only one who blew kIsses, another difference

    Ratmansky's Paquita

    I imagine they have copyright and patent and trademark protection

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    He's Rarely reviewed in ny as implied above and people have more interest broadway generally so only balletomanes would know and they have no reason not to believe Broadway world
  5. But he always enters with cape ( no hat)
  6. I thought Duncan left years ago is Roman injured? He is so underrated
  7. With all the comment here one questions why ratmansky ( or his heir/ copier) peck is considered sucha genuis or his residency a coup no one mentioned bolt
  8. I recall the religious school teachings about the lifeboat dilemma as a child which I endured daily, and comparative religious debates as an adult. My Catholic friend says if a group has one hundred dollars spend it all on a sick unborn fetus. He says he never thought of anyone else's issues. My Jewish teachings disagree. i just saw Mel Gibson in a movie urge fellow men to die for "freedom" in Scotland, whatever that means when dead. I have a friend who says die inevitably but take the other with you to the grave. I think of all the children sent to world war , to Iraq Afghanistan, and the Middle East. I think of civil wars and religious wArs and "sacrifices". I wonder what a mother could do without allies or power or skills or strength or weapons or money or looks or a manipulative personality besides die with her child. I think your judgment harsh and unfair. Fighting ferri's child died, too. As for "stoic" think about the Spartans and their warrior training and what they did to their children stoic can be a strength or a weakness or misinterpreted (eg socially fearful or shy people are arrogant and stand offish). Another interpretation, she is thinking about what to do and how to do it

    Of course. The other post may have read as if it were the only review of their show, which could've been likely due to rarity.

    Carol pardo didn't say anything like that why would he not care? He is very particular about his image

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    On a light note, I took a non-balletomane friend to see Giselle twice this year and once before. He said " I don't think that that Devon Tushy ( his pronunciation) can ever be as icy and good as that Gillian as Mertha. She is so killer. I love her facial expressions." he snored through Romeo literally but loved manon so I have to be careful. Now he can't stop talking about how great Gillian was and making me put on swan lake videos so he can dance. Which I can't decide if everyone should see for a laugh. Ba should invite Pres. Trump to see the ballet after his disapproving comparison of boxing to ballet today.

    "Restless Creature: Wendy Whelan"

    There are fifty practically empty dance studios in the surrounding five villages to my house. I doubt she'd want to teach five year olds at each once a week for a few bucks each

    "Restless Creature: Wendy Whelan"

    I don't know how you could arrive at that conclusion. She seems desperately grasping with Watson (?) and other attempts. I assume she will end up teaching. Who esp accomplished active forty year old person wants to sit at home staring at the tv decades

    Kent Becker of Ballet Focus reported 36.
  19. Well, certainly Graham addressed Medea
  20. Or the Green Table. I didn't expect anything not serious from a Rite of Spring commentary. I don't understand the pairing of ballets at the gala. I keep thinking of Alessandra and Herman saying they don't like to watch dance. I don't get the smiles, either. I watched the Holocaust tv show as a kid and was horrified, with parental guidance. But even South Park commented on The Lottery. Are gala folks asking for insulation from reality or bubbles? I would think McKenzie would give it to them.
  21. What was the commentary in survival of fittest or holocaust? how did it compare to that Light holocaust ballet? excelsior had a slave whip within commentary

    Cuban I counted 34-38 and the woman next to me said 42 but she is incorrect. Faux pas they added music this time which someone confirmed After the trip seen onstage in act two, someone saw from the side her fall on her face when she was backstage. The thud was enormous and worrisome. He continued without interruption. In act 1 she didn't jump the second time in the vertical lift so he didn't lift her at all. She also did not bump hard into bathilde and act startled but rather ran to her mother after a tap of the nobles and seemed almost unaware of them rather than frazzled as usual. he varied the interpretation in act one too being less worried about nobles and being caught , and more involved with her mad scene and remembrance, moving upstage with her. That conveyed more regret or compassion. hee said goodbye to him on media and many said he is not returning. I feared that but it was not the impression I got. nothing special marked his anniversary but he took a longer solo bow and why are you abandoning us canbelto? by the way, where can I get a pair of borzoi?

    I saw L Laccara in a segment of a version of dame aux camillias that was credited to someone named Ivan. Does anyone know if this is a suite or full ballet and who choreographed it.
