  1. Also, Titania in Midsummer, the Susan Stroman ballets, Slaughter on Tenth Ave.
  2. I'm very happy about this. These programs really gave me something to look forward to every week this past spring.
  3. SPAC is replacing the ballet floor and looking for donations to help fund it after the cancellation of this summer season. The floor was already ordered so that it would be in place for this summer and since it was custom-made, they couldn't cancel the order.

  9. I haven't had a chance to watch either of these videos yet, but I thought some BalletAlerters might be interested. First, there's a Works & Process video from the Guggenheim with choreography by Josh Bergasse performed by Sara Mearns as part of their virtual commissions series: Then, there is a discussion with Bergasse as part of BSC@Home (Barrington Stage):
  10. Thanks for posting fiddleback. I really enjoyed this.
  11. I've checked the YouTube channel and Facebook page and I don't see it in either place.
  12. Was tonight's Lincoln Center Dance Week program pulled (Tribute to Balanchine)? I just looked at the website and I don't see the program listed anymore.
  13. I also really enjoyed this. Thanks to fiddleback for spreading the word.
  14. Thanks for posting this yesterday--I couldn't figure out where the link was and thanks to you I didn't have to.
  15. The Miami production really made me appreciate how much the Chagall sets and costumes add to the NYCB production. It doesn't really matter that not much is happening in the final tableau at NYCB because there's so much to look at. The Miami production just doesn't have the visual splendor to complement the music.
