  1. It is available on the Bolshoi video app but only for a few hours the next day.
  2. Does anyone know why Seymon Chudin is not dancing as much? He was often Smirnova’s partner.
  3. I was in despair yesterday when I checked ALL the movie theaters in NYC and Brooklyn to find that they were all sold out. Happily, It is on the video link on the Bolshoi web site. I don’t know for how long. I watched it this morning; thought it was wonderful, and I could get used to the fugue.
  4. I had never seen Kammermusik and I would go again this week if I could afford it. Saw it yesterday. And was fascinated and astounded by Union Jack. I loved it! The gravity of the “Tattoos?” was so moving to me. And surprising that City Ballet could move so slowly! ( not really....they can do anything!)
  5. Years ago, I remember Koch saying the the melting of the Arctic circle would give us more farmland.
  6. Who were the dancers in 4T in the video from 1964? Does anyone know?
  7. I have been loving Skyler’s performances . Would love to see her in Giselle.
  8. Thank you for the information. I miss all of them.
  9. Where is Lauren Lovett? Why is she not dancing at all this nutcracker season? I hope she’s not injured.
  10. third episode is up still couldn’t get translations! Love Julian and Svetlana is beautiful!!!
  11. Youtube has a translated version? I could not find it. Will you give me the link? Thank you.
  12. I found it and watched it: Are there anyRussian speakers out there who could tell me who the other dancers are and which companies they are from? And was the lowest scorer eliminated?
  13. I too thank you Jayne. I will miss these dancers. I loved watching them. I hope the panic and horror these three men must be enduring moves them into a profound self-examination and change, as would a fatal car accident shock an alcoholic into sobriety and responsibility for the hurt that he inflicted.
  14. I think Gelsey Kirkland’s book should be reread to counter Mr. Clifford’s memory. All was not sweetness and light in “the good old days.” And I have had experience with “clique warfare” especially in theatre. It’s awful—there’s always a scapegoat if the director is weak and scared.
  15. When I was working as an actress and rehearsing at home, my cat, watching from my bed, would pee when I came to an heightened emotional moment! I learned to rent space to rehearse!!!
  16. I have seen all of these wonderful dancers many times on video and live as often as possible in New York. The dancer who appears uninvited in my memory and in my heart’s memory most often is Sara Mearns.
