  1. I love it, too. Such a beautiful tribute to a great ballerina and an iconic teacher.
  2. That’s the same link I posted yesterday, Naomikage. It is a really wonderful tribute, isn’t it? And very moving that the guest artists are Native Americans and Osage.
  3. Wonderful, Seallen! I love the Doodle but I am especially grateful for the process video and identification of the artists.
  4. I posted this in the Ballet History subforum today, but I guess it’s more appropriate here. Good day, Everyone, Please see today’s Google Doodle honoring Maria Tallchief in celebration of Native American Heritage Month, and enjoy this wonderful video about the Doodle. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjlkcGgloLtAhVEnFkKHZ0WCeIQwqsBMAR6BAgCEAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fm.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DkHEjSnVLGXE&usg=AOvVaw0AL1VAXU1Xkf0adTG_BJP6
  5. I received the same six issues, as well. What a lovely surprise!

  7. Thank you, BalanchineFan. I hope to be there!
  8. Oh, so sad to hear this but I’m not surprised. Maria’s artistry has grown deeper and more beautiful as she has aged. I do hope she can have a live farewell performance, but I am not encouraged at this point. Keeping my fingers crossed. My favorite memories of her dancing at SPAC are her stunning performances in Firebird, Diamonds and Titania as well as many other roles.
  9. I couldn’t agree more. As far as I’m concerned, it’s MCB’s loss.
  10. How wonderful! I can’t wait. The digital offerings have kept me centered during this awful time. Thank you, California.
  11. Where is the Tribute to Balanchine on the website? This is so frustrating.
  12. Dear Alexandra, Happy, happy Birthday!! 🤗
  13. THIS IS TOO MUCH FUN. THANK YOU, PHERENK AND BALLET LOVER. I NEEDED THIS. WILL SHARE IT WITH THOSE IN MY CIRCLE.
  14. Good day, Everyone. I emailed Lincoln Center and this is what I received: What’s interesting is that this is available for only one week per the response. But ehen I watched MSND on Sat night, it clearly indicated we could watch it through some date like July 14, which if true is really generous. Did anyone see the same on Sat night?
  15. Hello, Everyone, I hope you are well. There is no link on the Lincoln Center at Home website for this ABT 5/21 performance. Glad there is a link here, but does anyone know what the problem is? And many thanks for posting the link, Dale.
  16. Miliosr, thank you for this perspective, which illustrates how companies variously respond to crises, depending on their personal circumstances, fortunes and leadership.
  17. This is so very sad. What a terrible situation. This is so true. My brother has to apply and he says its a nightmare. So sad.
  18. Agreeing with everyone here. I find this production to be grim and unattractive. I do like the swan’s tutus, and I love the dancing, but overall it’s a very dark and flat production. I have the same feelings about Martins’ Romeo and Juliet, Per Kirkeby having designed those sets and costumes, too. That said, I did find some good things to like about it, as I’m sure you will, too, especially O/O. I haven’t seen it in about five years and I will most likely take in two performances at SPAC this summer, especially if there are two casts, but it’s doubtful there will be two casts.
  19. Thank you so much for posting this, FPF. Given there is Balanchine in two programs, I’ll probably go to more than three performances this year in addition to SL.
  20. I’m so sorry to hear about your ankle injury, canbelto. Here’s hoping your recovery speeds up. I’m sure it’s very demoralizing. Thank you for your interesting thoughts!
  21. This is a fun topic and I’m glad it was revived! My love of ballet began in the summer of 1980 when my future husband took me on two dates to see NYCB at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. I was 24 years old and hadn’t experienced much ballet at all up until then. How I wish I had kept my programs! The first date included Scotch Symphony and I do believe Suzanne Farrell danced the lead role. I was enchanted, I tell you! The second performance we saw that summer was Midsummer Night’s Dream and Patricia McBride danced Titania. Talk about being enchanted! And gobsmacked! I’d never in my young
  22. Great post, Cristian! Happy Thanksgiving to you, as well.
