  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.
  10. 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].
  11. 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. Not engaging. The Washington Ballet did great adaptive use of sites. https://www.facebook.com/43875516691/videos/2611017455779623/?__so__=channel_tab&__rv__=all_videos_card Choreography is at: 38:00 pdd Onuki-Kriza - steps of National Cathedral - night shoot with lighting 49.13 Center Stage in Cathedral parking garage-choreography by a dancer who was in PR for the pandemic 30:55 Sombrerrisomo - reimagined for outdoors using landscape architecture by the choreographer while in Europe[believe Cathedral organizations grounds]
  13. 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? Each month increases the chances so by late April and May might be ABT DQ and TWB SL? Miami is doing a 2020 live Nutcracker outdoors which is a good prototype for venues like Wolf Trap [has state of the art equipment ] : https://www.miamicityballet.org/nutcracker?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI44Wv2tjZ7AIVwtSzCh3dFwsEEAAYASAAEgJGGfD_BwE I loved the broadcast of the Arja FB especially since the Bouder FB was my first cancellation. Miami also had a fun pop up studio with tutus in the windows on Lincoln Road.
  14. Are there any longer videos of Abrera in White Swan at Kaatsban?
  15. 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/
  16. 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/
  17. Was Abrera last onstage at the Kennedy Center in Giselle with James Whiteside? Great performance.
