  1. I got to see the Wed. and Fri. performances. The only comment I'm going to add is about casting. After seeing Shklyarov and Latypov, I think the Mariinsky management seriously goofed by sending only one principal dancer. They overestimated the appeal of the company as box office draw without the charisma of their star dancers. Even if you didn't know Shklyarov was a principal, you would have felt drawn into his world. His adventures seemed real and and ridiculous and consequential. Of course there are wonderful dancers at all levels of the company. In the internet age, with our

  3. I agree with you, but have seen them make last minute decisions about selling standing room.
  4. Usually standing room tickets are sold the day of the performance at the box office.
  5. One of the Washington Post background articles on Trump mentioned that early in his career much of his liesure time was spent at Studio 54. I don't recall any mention of performing arts. Do the Miss Universe affiliated pagents have a talent component?
  6. Or your local PBS station will decide to show it at 3:00 am in the middle of the week. ;--)
  7. There are a couple of new cellphone transgressions that are driving me nuts. People who use their phones to check the time, the lights go off and on throughout the performance, and those who use the light from the phones to read the program in the dark.
  8. Clifford also has a blog where he has posted several chapters of an autobiography manuscript. I haven't heard about it from any other source. This link goes to the chapter on Goldberg Variations and PAMTGG. http://johnclifford26.blogspot.com/2013/09/ch-28-goldberg-variations-reveries-and.html?m=0 Moderators, I wasn't sure where this would fit in the writings on ballet forums. Please post where it is appropriate. There are several chapters that are scattered among the blog entries. Thanks, Lisa
  9. The direction a dancer travels from the upstage left or right corner to the opposite downstage corner. Think back to geometry class, the diagonal is the longest line that can be drawn through a shape.

  13. Let's not forget the trolls from Bournonville's "A Folk Tale."
  14. The Uris became the Gershwin, so if you've seen "Wicked" in NYC you've been there relatively recently. I saw ABT do "Tales of Hoffman" there some time in the late '70s. I think the choreography was by Ronald Hand. I don't remember the time of year. It was pretty and I enjoyed it at the time, but having only seen it once I don't remember anything specific about it.
  15. Excerpts available here: https://muse.jhu.edu/book/45795 It looks like the first couple of pages of each chapter. I was left hungry for more.

  17. Pavlova had a solo called California Poppy.
  18. A warning about Goldstar, you will not be able to choose your seat and you will not find out your seat location until you pick up your tickets at will call. I've had good and less than ideal seats.
  19. The Washington Ballet performances are self produced. They rent the theater from the KC and make all decisions about ticket pricing.

  21. The Farrell company grew out of the summer intensives that she conducts for the Kennedy Center's Education Department. This links to a history of the program: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.kennedy-center.org/education/farrell/&ved=0ahUKEwjT1uXJrd_LAhVJFx4KHYfnDxYQFggbMAA&usg=AFQjCNGczeYqzp7u9ob3aclXJ1AfgNJO7w&sig2=QgoybagnHYjrTSCIlbKPjA After reading her autobiography, I was left with the impression that she tries to live in the moment and take things as they come. I think the company might have had the potential to grow, but the inte
