  1. And "The Need to Go" WaPo https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/coronavirus-reopen-bathrooms/2020/05/18/a6ed57fc-93ba-11ea-82b4-c8db161ff6e5_story.html Rural areas had some marvelous outdoor performances including Shevshenko-MacKay https://www.instagram.com/p/CD_v3SKnm1B/
  2. Big Ballet has a new 2020 season. When's the broadcast? I wonder if the KC has any digital content from Abrera's 2020 KC Giselle and other ABT performances over the last few years. Was the NYCB digital season Koch simulcasts? Carousel overhead shots? Any input on equipment at venues? This Met product seems inferior to the KC simulcast and is schlock compared to Wolf Trap: https://www.instagram.com/p/CCH0bfLH62Y/ Wolftrap has state of the art equipment for simulcast on jumbo screens with 5 fixed cameras, control booth, record button, optional 2 handheld cameras [used in syste
  3. The Mariinsky has a matinee and evening gala on Sunday 7/19/20. I saw various dancers had posted rehearsal pictures on Instagram. https://www.mariinsky.ru/en/playbill/playbill/2020/7/19/2_1400/
  4. Fun! Are the small vids the same dancers?
  5. Was Abrera last onstage at the Kennedy Center in Giselle with James Whiteside? Great performance.
  6. Yes! I noticed a corps dancer on each view. Can anyone id? At 6:23 she's in the lift center.

  8. The Kennedy Center is selling tickets for June TWB Swan Lake and is continuing to sell Hamilton. TWB is a renter so if you're logged in it doesn't exist. This has been going on since Rutter's website update [Jan 2020?]. Articles had the KC at 90% refund while some others locally get 50-90% donate back. https://wtop.com/entertainment/2020/04/curtain-call-dc-area-theaters-hope-to-stage-comeback-after-coronavirus/ Update 4/28/20 - TWB Swan Lake is moved to May 6-16 2021 in the KC Eisenhower.
  9. Svetlana Zakharova Odette/Odile, Denis Rodkin Prince Siegfried and Rothbart/ Evil Genius is Artemy Belyakov.
  10. Update: The Kennedy Center is included in the potential Stimulus Package for 25 million and hopefully NEA funds will go to ABT. https://www.kennedy-center.org/our-story/message/ https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/25/politics/trump-kennedy-center-funding-stimulus/index.html https://support.abt.org/ABTCrisisReliefFund Rutter appears to be proud of her 50% pay cut down to an estimated $600,000 and CNN states about 800 people were laid off. https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/museums/arts-groups-have-never-been-very-flush-with-cash-now-theyre-facing-an-even-bigger-battle-for-surviva
  11. I'm sad about the Swan Lake postponement but grateful that Kent was able to rescheduled for June. Donating back to a favorite company is different than a donate back to a venue presenting a company. ABT is wise to suspend sales . ABT, the production company, allowed the refunds of tickets and fees on that Giselle cast change, not the KC. That show started at the same price as other weekdays but rose in dynamic pricing after casting was announced. We received notice of the SL postponement before the KC closure through 3/31.
  12. KC ABT Giselle is 1 open rehearsal and 7 performances with 7 leads. Unusual. Met is 8 with 6 of the KC 7 plus Shevshenko-Royal, Osipova-Hallberg minus Brandt-Ahn. Other KC casting in performance order with "debut week" in italics: ABT OR: Act 1 Boylston-Bell-Whitley, peasant Trenary-Maloney [extra partial McBride-Hoven]. Act 2-Brandt-Ahn-Hurlin-Ishchuk [partial Whitely+ Williams]. Peasant [2 at 2 + 3 singles]; Paris-Shayer, McBride-Hoven, Brandt-Gonzalez ?, Trenary-Maloney ?, Hurlin-Sebastian Brandt-Gonzalez, Paris-Shayer, Trenary-Maloney. Hilarion [1 at 3, 2 at 2] : Zh
  13. Suzanne Farrell wrote Notes on the Ballet while affiliated with the Kennedy Center. Farrell's writings [on Balanchine works, Ballet Across America, etc] are not available on the new KC website. Is there any other source for Notes?
  14. Thank you both for the links. Have you tried the translator for Microsoft edge? From the icon in the address bar it's 1 click and does the entire page. I see similarities to Cuba for willis and Myrtha and the concept of the Albrecht diagonal - no entrechats or brises.
  15. Thanks and am now prepped for NO dancing Lilac. I looked up the full cast list on NBOC website and was looking forward to Tanya Howard. What was the run time? KC has TBA. Kent TWB did a SB last season with a dancing Lilac and Macaulay was in the audience. He 's doing a lecture at the studio on Balanchine + Ashton and Gomes is guesting in Allegro Brillante and Méditation for Thaïs. Best review etc of TWB SB was by Macaulay on his instagram at https://www.instagram.com/p/BujL_qpAMFb/ .
