  1. Those seats are sold for full capacity beginning 9/1/21. https://www.kennedy-center.org/visit/covid-safety/ Realistically do I expect to see that Miami Nutcracker in a full capacity Opera House? No. The KC could use these theatres this summer under DC guidelines with capacity limits: Opera House cap= est 2198*25%= 549 so cap at 500. Eisenhower 1161*.25%=290 Wolf Trap is doing pods like Miami's Nutcracker but the only ballet booked is Maryland Youth Ballet. I was surprised at no ABT or TWB. ABT is at the marvelous Salamander [Sheila Johnson resort] outdoors with rain da

  3. Bridgerton premiered on Netflix 12/25/2020. Great fun in a Regency era bodice ripper with sumptuous costumes and sets. Bridgerton | Official Trailer | Netflix - YouTube
  4. Thank you! Many in the Washington DC area deeply enjoyed the Ballet West Nutcrackers at the Kennedy Center. Ballet West gave excellent information on it's site and the app for free streaming on roku works even for those not in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The NBC local station in Boston broadcast a 1 hour Boston Ballet Nutcracker this year. More companies and networks should have free Nutcrackers available as scheduled programming.
  5. It's fun to see the various versions - the DW has "Mulan" tea and reed flutes marzipan is one dancer with mythological characters. I was going to watch RDB Balanchine again with the Danish modern take on sets with the cookie jar building's lid/roof tilted as the centerpiece in act 2. Instead I discovered a great totally new to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aMbYrvMW8s&ab_channel=wocomoMUSIC Royal Swedish Opera [1999]: Prince-nephew-cavalier appears - not in usual nutcracker mask-a caribou Nutcracker?

Peter Walker choreographed an ad for Sotheby's with dancing beginning at 5:34 Sotheby's & NYCB: Festival of Wonder - YouTube There's a marvelous pre pandemic SFB filmed on a dock After The Rain Damian Smith and Yuan Yuan Tan in Christopher Wheeldon's After The Rain - video Dailymotion This is a great example of choreography that is able to be done on non-standard surfaces.

  7. Ratmansky also posted Tiler Peck in Pictures at an Exhibition on instagram. He posted Winter about the same time as Nutcracker.

WW1 allegories now applicable to covid 19.
  8. The Zoom Wedding would normally have been our flying for a long weekend adventure as happy guests.
  9. Thanks for posting. Maria Khoreva and Vladimir Shklyarov are at 1:56:29 [surfed]! I'll view the entire show later on a TV screen. Who's at 1:45? The choreography? It could be done in USA pandemic digital [various hard surfaces]. I seem to delve into where I was in prior years...2 years ago in November was the first time we saw Khoreva - Apollo with Xander Parish in Balanchine at City Center. Zoom wedding this year. October 2020 was made sadder by the 1 year prior Paquita [regrets on not going to CA have intensified].
  10. Anyone seen the 1963 The Haunting based on The Haunting of Hill House? Netflix series? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057129/ Some developed an aversion to homes with similar architecture after Amityville Horror. https://www.theloop.ca/the-amityville-horror-house-is-up-for-sale/ At auction-clawfoot tub, beamed ceilings, original millwork/floors, some exposed brick inside, white kitchen, view, 4 sides brick: https://derosaexchange.com/auburncastle

  12. Happily watched The Mariinsky class! It's on FB - while there check out Gabe Stone Shayer rehearsing DQ with Skylar Brandt and coached by Corella! Sunshine through the gloom. ABT's on at 3:45 and this is a great addition for WBD viewing: https://www.facebook.com/gabe.shayer/videos/10159274649659575/?__tn__=%2CdCH-R-R&eid=ARBlbseUGyQFUYLi8opkVz5VrGWH1gtGyUjpKoJiA__uTbBfMFQnwmzgNgxRXH6V-FZAN4WtoMhro_Iv&hc_ref=ARRoaCL_2d-JHazvq6hAld_yKr98fOFHtLebnpiFu2HZ8It-edBvTk-5tdK1fsmImtY&fref=nf Realistically what will I see live in 2021?
