    Tutu Much documentary

    Yes, it looks very much like Ballet Girls to me - suspect the footage has been re-worked, to fit cinema format and timing? m2
  2. Here is the article in spanish, from the company website: http://www.balletdc.com/manifiesto.htm They are asking for e-mails of support, and the address to send your support (they only ask for your name) is at the bottom of the page. (I don't think this page has been translated on the website). This is such very sad news. I'm sure that CarolinaM and others closer to Barcelona will be able to give us some further information as time goes on; perhaps there is a plan for some sort of action? mom2
  3. I have e family member in the Met - so for me, the best 5 minutes would be in seeing/hearing her perform. I remember when she chose to pursue opera as a vocation. She had been training in voice of course, doing University and post-graduate work. At some point she had what she described as an "out of body" experience - this level of emotion is what encouraged her to continue with voice over other things. More years later than we would care to acknowledge, she still seems quite content in her choice of career path. I am still looking for that level of fulfillment in my career............. m2
  4. Bravo to all the dancers, but in particular Mr. Smith and Mr. Winchell, who trained in Canada. m2

    ABT II roster changes

    I too had noticed the changes, wondered about Mara Thompson but haven't been able to google up any news.
  6. Well, I had the tv on for the half hour of the CBS news (though not an NYC station). The only arts-related tidbit was Paul Mc Cartney on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theatre.......did he trump F. Franklin? m2
  7. Nice article, I too am saddened that the author didn't acknowledge the source in some way. m2
  8. It's not on here just yet - hopefully whichever station I get has the same programming yours does! m2
  9. I just looked at the Round II information as posted on the website. If I understand correctly, a number of dancers have now been eliminated - including the two my dd knows. Merde to those continuing on!! m2
  10. I did a google news search, and found that a couple from Rochester City Ballet is in the competition. That's about all I found though - and the contestants would have started their work today. m2

    MCB's Alex Wong & Jeremy Cox funny clip ;-)

    I love it too - saw it a while back. now I'm wondering if we shouldn't send it to Nigel at SYTYCD and demand a recount/review???

    Ms. Holmes set some parts of Laurencia for my daughter's ballet school this year. The students enjoyed working with her a great deal, and the performances I saw were lovely! I hadn't ever heard of this ballet before; when I looked it up I saw that it was based on the play Fuente Ovejuna? Is this correct? I remember having to read this play many years ago when I was in University and studying in Spain......... m2
  13. I was just wondering the same thing myself, Millie. Hopefully someone "in the know" will respond soon! m2

    Corella Ballet in New York

    Guess I'd better book my travel now! m2
  15. I have to say Gilles took the night for me. Most of the others not really worthy of a second look from this viewer. m2

    Erik Bruhn Prize 2009

    Thanks for posting Paquita! I am more than ready for the competition, though am disappointed the Royal Ballet isn't making an appearance this year. That said, my tickets are purchased and waiting!! m2

    ABT in Ottawa

    Drat!!! Won't be in Ontario that weekend!!
  18. The National Ballet of Canada performed this in the spring of 2008; it was part of a mixed program. I was really looking forward to it, and it had been advertised widely....in the end, it was not my favourite piece of the evening....for me, it was a bit too much like musical theatre - which I can go elsewhere to see. Just my personal opinion......... m2
  19. We had a conversation over the course of the event over on the sister site, Ballet Talk for dancers...so, a few of us also watched! mom2
  20. It was a wonderful show indeed volcanohunter, thank you so much for the heads up!! mom2
  21. Marga, Do you know if they are planning something in Toronto this year? I always enjoy going, so will cross my fingers. m2

    40 Years of One Night Stands

    Just saw the show - thanks again to volcanohunter for the reminder! I enjoyed it very much - quite a few bits of history that I didn't know, and some wonderful archival footage. m2
