    I would like to add three cheers to the group sales department at NYCB. Very helpful indeed!

    Is Bournonville Still Alive?

    According to my count on the RDB website today there are 17 graduates of the RDB school in the corps de ballet.

  4. also, Frola and Emma Hawes will be sharing their time between NBOC and English National Ballet, like Jurgita Dronina.

    Seating Advice at the Met

    For a quick, healthy, and inexpensive meal, I just discovered Bonmi http://eatbonmi.com/ on 62nd between Columbus and Amsterdam (across the street from the park alongside the Met). Vietnamese sandwiches and bowls.

    Seating Advice at the Met

    I found Boulud Sud overpriced for what you get. Before the theatre they force you to order their three-course prix fixe for $65, which when you add something to drink and tax and tip is getting perilously close to $100. I also really like Le Pain Quotidien for a more casual meal.

    2017-18 season

    unlikely, I would say. They usually tour just one production at a time.

    Seating Advice at the Met

    For dinner I like the Atlantic Grill W 64th just off Broadway http://www.atlanticgrill.com/venues/near-lincoln-center/ They have a $49 three-course pre-theatre prix fixe http://www.atlanticgrill.com/menus-and-food/

    UNBOUND 2018: A Festival of New Works

    Those are the five I would have chosen, though I did like the Welch piece (but it went on a bit too long). Did they say which ballets will be on which programs? I particularly want to know about programs 2 and 3.

    The Green Table

    how do you know that an "aging audience" "demands comfort"? Seems like a pretty ageist assumption . I was just in San Francisco for Unbound. Looking around at the audience, it was pretty much the same proportion of white hair as at most ballet performances, and they responded VERY enthusiastically to everything.

    RDB 2018/19 Season

    not sure how it can be judged a "horror" when it hasn't even been created yet.
