    Agreed, Cargill, and well said, Eduardo, and an interesting description.

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    Hello, Everyone. I see some of you will be at Giselle 2 pm tomorrow. So will I!!! Should we meet up near 'Christian's Bar' (that's the Met bar, correct?). I have a seat in Row G - thought of changing it, after reading above, but they want $30 dollars to exchange! Unbelievable. I'll live with it. I do hope my sight view won't be impeded. I'm very excited about my trip down and can't wait to see Sarah and Danil dance!

    How beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for posting this , maps. It also filled me with sweet anticipation for tomorrow's performance of Sarah Lane in Giselle! Woopee!!!
  5. Oh, I've been offline a bit and just hearing about Nini. What a beautiful life force she was! I loved her im Ballets Russes and her performance in Midsummer is breathtaking to me. It makes me cry. Reat in Peace, Ms Theilade.

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    And the WaPo's statement about possible physical abuse of Heather Watts.

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Yes, I agree, abatt. When I read that (admittedly in the wee hours of the morn and so, not yet fully awake), I was confused at this being an example of abuse.,

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I do not think Woetzel would leave his Julliard post, that's why said he was a longshot. But before he was appointed to it, I'd thought he would be a strong contender to lead NYCB when Martins retired.

    Nutcracker 2017

    As I think about it more, the timing couldn't be better for Suzanne to come on board to serve a critical need, coaching or otherwise.

    Nutcracker 2017

    Hi Birdsall and canbelto! My first live NYCB Nutcracker (2011?) had Tiler Peck dancing Dewdrop and she was the highlight for me, in a Nutcracker performance that really blew me away overall. She was stunning then so I am happy to hear these reports. I would LOVE to see Sterling in SPF - she is so tiny and exquisite. And Tess as Dewdrop, too, I'm sure is a treat.

    Nutcracker 2017

    To this and cobweb's comment about the performances, I'm sure everyone is feeling demoralized and uncertain, given the Martins news. Best thing that could happen is for an interim director to be appointed immediately for leadership needs and whoever assumes AD permanently is well-chosen and a great fit, and not hastily installed as a reaction to this shake-up.

    Oh, how I wish Suzanne would return to the company in some important way!! Tiler is just so great!
