  1. I have traveled widely for business and sightseeing and have on ocassion attended available performances in theater, opera, and dance. Being in the Washington, DC area I have traveled to New York and Boston to catch local or visiting ballet or dance companies. But visiting companies rarely do more than the tried and true standards so traveling to their home bases is a must. So instead, I thought it would be fun to combine a vacation tour of cities coordinated with ballet and or dance performances. I am thinking a week or ten day tour stopping in two or three of the following European cities: Paris, Lyon, the Hague, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Monte Carlo coordinated with one or two ballet or dance events in each city. Do such tours exist; if so I have had little success finding them on the internet? Bruce

    Greetings from DC

    Hello, my wife and I, born and raised in New York City, have been dance-rejuvinated from our discovery of the choreography of Jiri Kylian. By accident we recently intercepted an excerpt from the "Black and White Ballets" aired on our Classics cable-TV channel. Picking up a DVD copy we watched it once before we decided to buy a bunch more to give as gifts. We have a 7-ft diagonal front projection screen and the staging, photography, and lighting of these 6 ballets is just spectacular. Kylian's dance flow and movement combinations are both exquisite and facinatingly intricate. We also bought and liked his "Kaguyahime- The Moon Princess". Any recommendations for DVD's or 2007-USA performances showing the work of other challanging choreographers?
