  1. That Swan Lake was in the works for a long time. If they looked at other options in DC next season, Giselle must have seemed like it had great potential as a safe money-maker after the long drought of serious revenue. Not something I'd jump onto an airplane to see, but still...
  2. Washington Ballet has just announced their 2021-22 season: https://www.washingtonballet.org/seasons/2021-22-season/ Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Giselle, Next steps
  3. Royal Ballet has announced casting for the fall season, including Giselle and Romeo and Juliet. https://media.wordfly.com/roh/bp1-casting-2021.pdf General ticketing starts August 24, with Friends right before that. https://www.roh.org.uk/tickets-and-events
  4. Rocky Mountain PBS is broadcasting the Colorado Ballet's Alice (in Wonderland) by Septime Webre on Friday, June 25 at 8 pm MDT. I don't know how far their reach is. This was a wonderful production from a few years back. Several of the principals have since retired, so it will be a real treat to see them again (most especially Maria Mosina, Sharon Wehnert, Alexei Tyukov). https://www.instagram.com/p/CQEM8B_Apxz/
  5. The Berlin State Opera Ballet has announced their 2021-22 season: https://next.staatsoper.de/en/
  6. I loved it, too -- ballet comfort food with just a little contemporary work with Bell and Hurlin. The camera work reminded me of the hideous German recordings long ago of Balanchine, which he reportedly hated. But that point in Vienna Waltzes that we all missed shows that camera work still has room for improvement after all these years!
  7. If you are a Friend of ABT (not sure where the cut-off is), you have access to ABT On Demand. It includes a full-length recording of ABT's performance of Swan Lake in 2014 in Australia with Veronika Part and James Whiteside.
  8. That was my one big disappointment with the camera work. The moment when the lights come on and the crowd enters from the side is always so exciting in the theater, and it was lost because the camera was watching Kowroski exit.
  9. NYCB Vienna Waltzes free on YouTube through June 17: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpqhrYV7W3I

  14. Do take a look at Choo San Goh's Fives, showing today only: https://vimeo.com/533274994/8e647d9ec1
  15. New YouTube just posted by Daniil Simkin of his rehearsals with Sarah Lane in Giselle right before their February 2020 performance at the Kennedy Center: Little did we know that those performances would be the last before the pandemic. I think that week also included Stella Abrera's retirement performance, although she did not know it at the time. EDITED TO ADD: Really interesting that Simkin posted this right after the Pointe interview, a reminder that they were dancing together right before the pandemic shut everything down - just in case anybody was wondering about identities! I would love it if he brought her to Berlin for some guest performances. THAT would be worth a trip!
