    I remember seeing Baryshnikov do the role, with McBride I think, but weren't Sarah Leland and Bart Cook the creators of the roles?

    The roles were created on McBride and her husband, Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux (not sure of the spelling).


  3. I don't understand why given the popularity of Swan Lake, compared with the other full length classics, McKenzie doesn't program 1 1/2 or 2 weeks of Swan Lake and let the audience have a chance to see their dancer of choice, and to let the dancers have the chance to really work in depth on the ballet, and to have the luxury of giving  performance opportunities to those dancers stuck in the pipeline.

    I noticed a few coffee table books in the eBay listing above.  You might be able to find good deal on a less than perfect or remaindered copy of a dance book like this listing from AbeBooks.com:  https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=10003811353&searchurl=kn%3DNew%2BYork%2BCity%2Bballet%26sortby%3D17

    It's almost sacrilegious for me to suggest cutting up a book for any reason, but if the book is sitting in a warehouse or on a store shelf without much monetary or collectible value, you would be rescuing the images you chose to display at home.


  5. Here's another promo code offer.

    I'm sure I'm leaving someone out; I seem to recall that there were five Danish Pastries, but I'm drawing a blank.

    If I remember my reading correctly, Erik Bruhn predated them all and was there for one unhappy season while Maria Tallchief was nearing the end of her NYCB career. 

     

    Peter Schaufuss?


  7. Hi Moderators,

    This seemed like the right forum for this post, because the offer is for a non dance event.  I don't know if there should be a separate sub forum for ticket offers for the other art forms.

    Please place this info where you think it would be most appropriate.

    Thanks, Lisa

    About the Program

    “Music has always been a balm to my soul.”

    —NEA Jazz Master Archie Shepp

    More than 50 years after his death in 1967, John Coltrane remains a cultural and spiritual icon with an unrivaled influence over jazz. The legendary saxophonist and composer’s intensity, coolness, and dignified dedication taught thousands of future artists to believe in their craft. Committed to encouraging musical growth in the next generation, Coltrane used his star power to foster interest in young players of the emerging avant-garde scene—including saxophonist Archie Shepp, now an NEA Jazz Master.

    In this momentous concert event, Shepp celebrates the boundless impact and talent of his good friend and mentor. He’s joined by pianist and Kennedy Center Artistic Director for Jazz Jason Moran and other contemporary greats, including Amir ElSaffar, Darryl Hall, Nasheet Waits, and Marion Rampal.
