  1. I attended the Tuesday April 9 and Saturday April 13 evening performances. This was my first Le Corsaire anywhere in person. My wife and I both LOVED IT and for sure would've been happy to go to more than two shows. I have a specific question that places me squarely in the unreliable witness category. For both, Ali's role was played by Kimin Kim. During Saturday night's Act II pas de deux a trois, the last half of the solo, Kimin finishes off diagonally. I'm 100% positive this is what I saw. But during Tuesday's night's show I could have sworn he finished off doing the circular versi
  2. I’m going Opening Night April 9 and on Saturday night April 13. Can’t wait!
  3. I went tonight (April 3) for the A Program with wife. We loved it! The house seemed very well attended. I’m not familiar with NYCB so can’t compare but def worth it, especially bc tix were only $29 a piece. 🙂
  4. I enjoy reading everyone’s insightful comments on this board — thank you! As mentioned I went Thursday (Kondaurova, Askerov, Batoeva). Loved it. My first time seeing LB and only set in stone prior commitments kept me from going to multiple performances.
  5. But... but... that’s my conversation starter! ;)
  6. I’ll be there tomorrow night Thursday. Wife is working so — again — just me. Orange tie having liquid appetizers at the Roof Terrace Restaurant bar beforehand if anyone wants to say hello or better yet join!
  7. I think it's an absolutely delightful ballet -- my first time seeing it -- and I'd for sure go again. Seated in Orchestra N for last night's performance (Latypov, Popov, Shakirova). I don't come from a background of growing up knowing this fairy tale but within minutes I felt like I did. it's funny and emotional (e.g., Ivan laying down, his head propped on his hand, staring up at that huge orangey moon). As far as the dancing, jeez, to my untrained eye it's all spectacular. The cast deserved the strong applause it received.
  8. Holy rock bottom prices, Imspear, thanks! Going tomorrow night with the missus.
  9. I'm here too. Gray suit, orange tie. Wife taller than me!
  10. Hello all. Opening night tickets are secured, attending other performances TBD. I can't wait and reading everyone's comments just adds to the build-up. It'll be me plus new-to-ballet wife and we look forward to drinks with anyone who'd care to meet up.
  11. Great to meet you and muchas gracias again! Review in the Bolshoi section.
  12. True to my name I completely slept on getting a seat before the sell-out so MASSIVE thanks to fellow member volcanohunter for feeling under the weather, I snagged her ticket and went in her place! My vantage point for the May 22 show was 2nd tier, row A, seat 211 which is dead solid center with a cushion in front the ushers caution against putting anything on. Cast: Gis - Sveta, Albrecht - David, Myrtha - Maria Allash, Hans - Vitaly Biktimirov. Giselle gets to me like no other ballet. Pre-performance at one of the Grand Foyer bars I went on and on to anyone who'd listen how proud I was to
  13. I can't see how to send you a message. Maybe it's because I've only got 7 posts to my name. If the ticket is still available please contact me: julio.alberto.morales@hotmail.com thank you!!!
  14. ...so imagine when Mme would still dare to die onstage...! I still remember...it used to be pandemonium...so magical... The and screaming start around 5:25 all the way to 6:43... This video (the Alicia Alonso one) is exactly what popped into my head when I read the title of this thread. If I'm ever lucky enough to be in a situation where stellar dancers inspire my fellow audience members to go nuts like this and I'm feeling it too, I will enthusiastically join in, even shaking my fist at Albrecht for doing Gis wrong. This clip gets me every time. Please believe it wasn't my intention -
  15. Exactly. For example I'm a seasoned four-star party general (though in my old age recovery takes longer) and I thought the scene where Nina and Lily are dancing with those two guys brilliantly captures the moment of full-on clubbing. Much more so than many movies "about" clubbing. I'm relatively new to the world of ballet and since "a little learning is a dangerous thing," I'm deadly. So watch out here come my comments. I watched Black Swan three times. When done well, I enjoy being bombarded with lots of stuff going on at once and in my opinion BS nails that, not only visually but in under
