  1. Does the musician's union give you any breaks when your interim artistic director is a conductor? I'm not sure, Jeff, about reflecting one's home cities tastes being a bad thing... after all, didn't NYCB reflect NYC in some way that American Ballet Theater didn't? Didn't Diaghilev's original presentations reflect the Russian scene to the west? Picking up on one's local environment might lead to interesting developments. Isolation can be a bad thing or a good thing depending on what kind of talent is involved. [This message has been edited by Amy Reusch (edited March 29, 2001).]
  2. Thanks Juliet... The other thing I'm wondering is whether this is mostly a pick-up company. I think that is the tradition of festival ballets, isn't it?

Or is this a true company that performs at home in Moscow as well.
  3. That sounds like a wonderful idea... I wonder if it is possible. I apologize for my ignorance, I've never written a review for publication before. I wonder if he has time to talk to me on a one-night-stand situation like this performance will be. I guess I should ask the press contact person at the venue.

It must be exhausting doing a tour of one night stands like this (although I guess it's all part of the game for most companies).. I ca
  4. I'll be reviewing this company doing "Don Quixote" in a few weeks for Eastern CT University's campus paper "The Lantern". I saw their production of Swan Lake here a couple of years ago. The casting was impossible to figure out from the program for that performance as well. The jester was the only memorable dancing of the evening. At one point, Moscow Festival Ballet changed it's name to Russian National Ballet. Now it seems to be touring again as Moscow Festival Ballet. Anyone know why? I tried to find a website for them, but without success. I'm curious to know where their costumes an
  5. Nothing so fun as above, but perhaps a note for those N*t weary dancers... my parents took me when I was a three year old to see Princeton Ballet's version. I fell in love, right then and there, apparently for life... something about the men flying through the air... as far as I can figure, the Sugarplum held no enchantment for me, and pink tutus and toe shoes seemed a disgusting and misleading stereotype to me for years... maybe it was the tomboy in me, but ballet was about men flying, not tutu princesses... anyway, for those of you who dread December, just remember the little timebombs you
