  1. ABT - Silas Farley fun-The Deer "some of the most extraordinary dancers in the world ...afternoon of the faun" https://www.instagram.com/p/CQl9idfH2XO/ 1st Serenade was 1934 outside on an estate. Many of the summer venues evoke the same atmosphere.
  2. I loved it. ABT with 5 pdds live filmed close-up was quite courageous. No go backs, retakes, or selecting shows from it's house digital vault. Big thanks to LA Music Center and ABT. The dancers were marvelous. The website - no DQ and then magically video+audio appeared during Swan Lake. The camera work was similar to the live broadcasts from NYC of CBS's The Ed Sullivan Show which sometimes included extreme facial closeups like the ABT LA R&J kiss. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1i_4kWnC-JU&ab_channel=TheEdSullivanShow
  3. ABT's 6/6/21 LA show has a free livestream. Sign up link https://themusiccenter.uscreen.io/programs/live-fzhh0k_gjvc https://www.instagram.com/p/CPv9YFDHsiA/ 10 dancers and 5 pdd excerpts. By the costumes: R&J Seo-Forster, SLTeuscher-Stearns, DQ Shevchenko-Ahn. A Time There Was Williams-Hoven, ? Hurlin-Bell. I'm curious to how the simulcast tech compares to Wolf Trap. ABT and NYCB dancers are at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston SC. Boylston and Gordon https://www.instagram.com/p/CPrQvKfgaVP/
  4. 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 dates perhaps on a dance floor laid on a terrace with limited lawn seating. Perhaps they will get to stay there pre return to NYC after the arduous tour.
  5. 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
  6. It's fun to see the various versions - 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
  7. Thanks for posting! 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. ABT buried fine new pandemic digital in other releases: Boylston-Whiteside Dock Swan Lake at 11:19 in MOVING STORIES: AN ABT FILM FESTIVAL | Day Two - YouTube and Hammoudi's Brandt-Cornejo at 4:20 in MOVING STORIES: AN ABT FILM FESTIVAL | Day One - YouTube .
  8. Ratmansky also posted Tiler Peck in Pictures at an Exhibition on instagram. He posted Winter about the same time as Nutcracker. The vaccine Alexei Ratmansky (@alexeiratmansky) • Instagram photos and videos Mark Ryden Were the shots originally conceived in the ballet due to Spanish flu epidemic? WW1 allegories now applicable to covid 19.
  9. The Zoom Wedding would normally have been our flying for a long weekend adventure as happy guests.
