  1. I found this video sharing a piece of fashion + ballet history to be really fun!
  2. La Compañía Nacional de Danza is actually performing next week in Granada and the week after in Madrid.
  3. At a time when we are continuously inundated with news that incites feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion, I wanted to create a space where we can be reminded of the beauty that awaits us when go to the theatre once again and of what we can do/read/watch/learn right now to keep the love of ballet and its beauty in our souls: #TheCurtainWillRiseAgainTTB Your contribution to the content is appreciated!
  4. Hi Everyone. Although an unfortunate topic, it is a real one. I have created this page on The Traveling Ballerina dedicated to how coronavirus is affecting the ballet industry. Considering the wide reach of this forum, I am hoping that any of you that have relevant information to add will fill out the form on the article's page so that I can keep it as updated as possible. Thank you so much!
  5. This is My Body..., the Scottish Ballet program that opened last night at The Joyce Theater, was super intense!
  6. You're very welcome, @ECat! I truly appreciate your kind words. And yes, basically, Hee Seo is simply sublime
  7. Opening night was stunning. My words don't quite have the power to convey the feeling I had throughout - and after - the performance, but hopefully they will give you an idea of just how wonderful it was Hee Seo, Cory Stearns and Devon Teuscher are so perfectly cast. Here's my review.
  8. I, too, definitely preferred the rep program. Thanks for pointing out the error! I've updated the link, as well. And, you're welcome
  9. I'd say it was just short of 3 hours; when I got on the shuttle, my watch read 10:30pm. And thanks for sharing Macaulay's SB review.
  10. You're welcome. I saw The Sleeping Beauty last night. As usual, it's a marathon of a ballet, and although not my favorite, I wanted to see Nureyev's version - here's my thoughts.
  11. Last night was the first time I have seen NBC live, and their performance definitely lived up to my expectations; here's my review. On another but related note, I have still to discover a Ratmansky ballet that resonates with me.
  12. This was definitely unlike any other Nutcracker I've ever seen! As mentioned in my review, I did not provide too much detail as I didn't want to ruin the element of surprise for anyone planning on seeing it; but if you want to hear about anything in particular, I'm happy to share!
  13. Here's a review and a bit of the story behind how the performances (featuring Sarah Lane & Cory Stearns) this past weekend at Sante Fe College in Gainesville, FL came about. Enjoy!
  14. Here are my thoughts about last night's performance, the first time I've seen any of these ballets. It was interesting...
