  6. You are Marius Petipa! The epitome of classicism, you are the most famous ballet choreographer, and most of these other choreographers wouldn't have gotten where they are without you, even if today's dancers think your codas are an excuse for gymnastics. It was fun!
  7. I saw Michelle Wiles Wednesday night. And what a joy it was.I thought that her technique was just perfect :beautiful balances, steady pirouettes .Her 3rd act variation was so clean, with all those turns it tends to be messy sometimes (in general it's not my favorite variation to watch),but she just opened my eyes ,it was like seeing it for the very first time. I can't wait to see her next year.
  8. Here's my list: Julie Kent Aurelie Dupont Irma Nioradze Suzanne Farrell Altynai Asylmuratova

    Egle Spokaite

    I don’t exactly agree with you about Egle Spokaite being more of a classical dancer. I know she did dance Odette –Odille, Giselle, Kitri, but she was never a strong technician (if I can say it this way) I much prefer seeing her in B. Eifman’s, K. Pastor’s work. Of course she’s the most popular dancer and the biggest box office draw at the moment in LT, but I think she’s being loved for her personality, for her acting skills and unfortunately her repertoire these days is very limited.

    Egle Spokaite

    Here I have the part translated where the critic talks about Egle Spokaite .I’m sorry for any spelling mistakes. Eglė Špokaitė and Nerijus Juška who know well the stylistics of the choreographer danced Gerald Arpino’s Reflections. They delighted with a sense of partnership, meditative duo facility. Interesting choreographic form with temperate turn-ups enabled the E. Spokaite's lines be revealed in all its beauty and the dance. In the background of jet-black curtains, augmented by minimalist scenography lines and Petras Geniushas, who was playing piano on the very stage, the dancers created

    For now here's a link with a picture from the Evening of American Choreography : http://www.omni.lt/?i$9359_16017_79349$z_169125 Please give me some time to work on translating the article.
  13. Wednesday night my parents went to Metropolitan opera to watch one of last performances of Luciano Pavarotti. They told me that it was painful to watch because of his limited abilities to move across the stage, there were extra chairs for him to sit , or to lean on. They found that very disturbing. In my opinion health is that matters the most.
  14. I was there Sunday. The mistakes in the program were very upsetting, because this was my first time seeing this company, and I really do not recognize dancers by face. Also as Liebs pointed out, lightening wasn’t quite there, sometimes with weird shadows appearing on stage. Overall I really enjoyed performance, especially because some of the numbers I saw for the first time. And I though dancers technique was amazing. I’m so happy that Brooklyn Center For the Performing Arts (it’s three blocks from there I live, and I never knew that they have such performances) brings such a interesting c
