A great lineup for this program.

I guess you would have to go to SF to see The Cage - SFB's Robbins program is (currently) slated for Mar 20 - Mar 25 (7 shows). A rather short period, but maybe there will be added shows…

Fortunately PNB's program and SFB's program are running at different times of the year so it's possible for jet setters to see both.

Dances!  And Interplay (I haven't seen it in years and years!). And yes, opportunities to travel for dance...

I got a heads up that I forgot that the PNB's French will include participation in the Festival's Robbins week:

Looking at this again, I'm sad that Interplay seems to have dropped out.  But there's much to be grateful for.

Agreed. I was looking forward to this. 

What I would do to see them perform Opus 19: The Dreamer in Paris. Le sigh...
