    2017 -- 2018 Season

    Tereshkina received tons of praise last times in America. I saw her O/O which was magnificent. Is that not classical?
  6. I checked my notes from the Met when I bought tickets.

    2018 Met Season

    He was pictured at the gala
  8. I have never seen lines like last night at the met. Full house, sold out ,many children. Copeland was fine as firebird . She's not Nina though. This year the birds look more like golden cockerels ( or woodpeckers or pigeons) and maidens like zombie puppets. Was the a white scrim there ( like neumeiers Sylvia) at the beginning before? Music was very slow. Shocked how good Duncan Lyle was. Why did he leave or come back? Choreo no chAllenge to Cornejo but awkward on Lane with all the flexing and thriller puppet nightmare motions. Could have been better rehearsed . Rite was better than expected. The girl knows the decision was made already rather than stumbling upon it. Didn't hear the pounding in the music pronounced. Maybe those things changed some of the horror or terror. Devon did protest though. I don't know what anyone else expected of her. The written program was odd ,incomprehensible, and pretentious though. I was too high to see the set described in the program - I saw a curtain only. Was there something else? Reminded me of s. king's zoo a bit as well as Gitmo or a drug war, not the sacrifice of Christ. The individual sacrifice was shown but the group's sacrifice was not depicted. Had they already lost their humanity? i don't know why being part of the chosen people is considered a privilege.
  9. That's why I found the comparison odd
  10. People keep comparing this in commentaries in media to Sophie's choice but didn't Sophie kill herself
  11. I did see an Alonso Giselle yesterday and she was the only one who blew kIsses, another difference
