  1. I found a news item that there will be a lecture about the Ballet West performances of Le Chant du Rossignol (yes, the Hodson/Archer version) and Apollo, with excerpts performed by Ballet West dancers. Not in Salt Lake City though - rather at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Lecture times are 3 pm and 7:30 pm on Sunday, Sept 29. "Ballets Russes expert Lynn Garafola, Professor Emerita of Dance, Barnard College, Columbia University, moderates a discussion with Hodson, Archer, Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute, and Balanchine Trust repetiteur Victoria Simon."

Archtypes was the most "modern" of the 3 works. I could never quite figure out the story. I agr
  4. This is a brief report on Tribute, the last show of the current (2011-2012) season. Tribute was a program of three recent short works by female choreographers, designed to honor the women who founded Colorado Ballet 51 years ago, Lillian Covillo and Friedann Parker. (Personal note: I am a very new ballet fan - the only live performances I have seen are this one, and a recent Boulder Ballet program. I have slightly more experience watching ballet on video.)
