  1. cygneblanc, what happened to Marine Ganio Khalfouni and Marie-Astrid Casinelli?
  2. Does anyone know which troupe/school Christina Shevchenko is a part of? I wonder where Anastasia Matvienko performs -- is she Denis's wife or sister? Thanks.
  3. There is also a nice photo of Melissa Hough from the competition here: http://www.balcomphel.fi/english/photos.html

    Irina Kolesnikova

    Sorry, I made a typo, her correct name is IRINA KOLESNIKOVA.
  5. I'd like to hear any reviews about this dancer if someone has seen her.... she is supposedly the "prima ballerina" at St. Petersburg Ballet Theater and the company has been making HUGE promotions about her all over the world...

    La Sylphide

    Did anyone see the four different casts? I was wondering how the new corps member, Misa Kuranaga, performed as the Sylph.

  8. I've read somewhere in the previous posts that Balanchine's Don Q wasn't a success. Can anyone who've seen the actual production tell us a little more about what it was really like? What was the music like? I've been reading quite a few members indicate that they would like this revived. I'd love to see a NYCB version of Don Q, different from the usual Russian version that we see. And yes, Korbes would be absolutely magnificent in this role, even in the Russian version, although I'm not sure if she'll have the "attack" for it. Ansanelli would be nice too.
  9. If you look at all the other WORLD CLASS companies in this world (and for me, the best representative of this is the POB at this moment), they have an official school and a company -- a history and a tradition which defines their unique heritage. IMO, you CAN'T have a great, world-class company without a great school. They also have their own residential opera house, an institution which allows them to nurture their repertory and their style in a given place. To me, this is what a top-rate ballet company must be. And in adhering to these definitions, NYCB seems to fit the picture. ABT has fine
  10. It is unfortunate that the company is using a large amount of its funds to privilege newer works rather than Balanchine's, but looking at it from the brighter side, they still are performing 54 Balanchine ballets. I think it could've been worse. Ideally, it would be wonderful if they could revive a chunk of earlier works by Balanchine, but with an AD who likes to choreograph his own works, it just won't happen. This isn't just a problem with NYCB, if you look at any other companies, you see the same kind of trend with 2nd generation ADs. (A serious question for "Ballet in 21st C") Anyway, why
  11.

  14. Could someone please let me know when this performance will take place at the New Jersey PAC? Thank you very much!!
  15. Has ABT toured Europe recently? I've noticed that most of their tours are domestic or in Asia. Is there a reason why they focus much more domestically and don't travel too often to Europe, besides perhaps financial reasons? It seems like NYCB and SFB have more fans in Europe -- or am I wrong...?
