  1. Has anyone seen the current mixed program at NBoC? Specifically, The Fiddle and The Drum. I'd love to know what those who've seen it think before seeing it myself. My ticket is for Sat eve.
  2. I did see Reilly as Romeo last season and thought he was fantastic. He was my favourite Romeo actually. (I also saw Cote and Antonijevik) It felt like there wasn't a single moment that he was on stage when he wasn't 100% Romeo. Too bad he can't be with NBoC all the time!
  3. Dancers from the same company have won before (Jaimee Tapper and Johan Persson from NBoC for example- don't know if that's the spelling.)
  4. Thought people might like to watch this: http://www.cbc.ca/openingnight featuring Guillaume Cote. Don't know if I did that right, but it's on CBC at 9:00pm I believe.
  5. Sorry my ignorance here. A quick search didn't show anything (though I may have done it worng) so thought I'd ask for people to just post what they know of this event. And specifically, what is the pre-competitive division like? Thanks!
  6. Song of the Earth wasn't for me. Then again, neither was Elite Syncopations. I have no intellectually stimulating reason why, I guess they're just not my taste. This was a bit of a tough program for the friend who accompanied me. Maybe not a good choice for a first-timer. Oops on my part!
  7. I'd love to see all the casts, but I'm sure that won't be possible.
  8. argh! I just saw spelling errors in my post. I HATE that.
  9. I too strongly dislike heights - looking "waaaaay down" makes me feel as though I might be sick on the head of someone below. I'm extrememly nervous that I will never be able to sit in the floor level seats in this building due to price, not to mention that those seats would sell quickly to a popular show. My season's tickets are ring 3 (or is it 4?) Anyway, reading your impressions was informative. I just hope that this wonderful new Opera House with so much too offer doesn't end up being something of a let down to people due to some of the little issues...
  10. I'll have to add Bravo to my cable package so that I can watch/tape this!!
  11. Perhpas the "demi soloist" title is equiliant the the "second soloist" here at NBoC
  12. hee hee. Very funny to see who is in the line up. Mario Lopez took dance classes as a child - I'm assuming it was the ballet/tap/jazz type of scenerio. I vaguely remember him doing a bit of a ballet number on "Saved by the Bell" back in the day.
  13. I had a sweet little orange kitty named Minou. Alas, she didn't live long (only 8 months.) She seemed to think she was a dog...would come when you whistled, would sit pretty for a treat, would play fetch, and best of all...would "do ballet." This was a bit of a variation on sit pretty with the addition of a few steps on hind legs to make about 3/4 of a turn. Quite cute. Had she had a longer life, my other half and I are confident she would have been about to do a "double" within a few months! She was wonderful.
  14. I've always wondered where Kimberly Glasco ended up after the whole law suit mess. Did she dance elsewhere? A quick search on the net mostly brought up old news, so any suggestions for articles that are not 10 years old would be appreciated.
  15. It's official - no summer performances are planned. I emailed to ask and received a reply to let me know what we've all already surmised.
