  1. Saw it yesterday, M.Gomes with Ashley Shaw. Ashley is very soft and elastic in her movements, and her upper body movement slightly resembled me the Russian style. Bearing in mind that, as nysusan wrote, they are not a ballet company, I found them extraordinary for that. Dancers and choreography were very musical, fluid, fast, filled with nuances, steps and action to the fullest (but avoiding jittery moves common for some contemporary staging). Loved his innovative design and utilization of the curtains, and fast movement (but again, not jittery). At the curtain call I was amazed that the company only had 16-18 dancers all together on the stage, it felt as if there were more of them. Had tickets for 2 shows, glad that I did, as I am definitely will see it again, Great dance creation
  2. Uliana Lopatkina danced an excerpt from it with Vladimir Shklyarov at BAM on 2/28/16. I liked that piece. Bring her to Kennedy Center please
  3. It was NOT produced by Ardani, Ardani holds author's rights for woman in the room only
  4. 116 saint felix street-BAM stafe door (edited)
  5. I wish BAM included into printed programs what UL requested written on BAM (full) website As Plisetskaya being one of "Stars of Russian Ballet" -program shown at Yale. The extended Yale program was split into 2 nights at request of BAM to show 2 slightly different programs. She and hervciach prepared two non-iverlapping programs (dying swan being a gift). UL had no control over printed program. Her representative provided ALL detailed infor to BAM and tour management (so you saw credits to dancers at least) bur was only shown a printed program a couple of hours before it went to print Dedecation to Plusetskaya was not UL idea. She did and does the best inder circumstances
  6. Why wouldn't you voice these concerns to the acting director Mr.Fateev? Suit-case deco and casting choices? The original programs' sequences with their logical narative progression of numbers, with enhancing colorful projected decorations& supporting historical puctures of dancers who originated or famed the pieces, was developed & designed by Uliana and her coach Irina Chistiakova. What and how it's shown at Bam is "what's left over" The artists and the original creators of programs (B&D) did their best under curcumstances
  7. It was Osmolkina debut in Sheherezade and Sergeev's in Blue bird
  8. Carmen Suite corpse was not from Mariinsky (it was told). Yakobson and they just learned the piece The BAM press office seemed collecting the leads' names at least
  9. The Leads in Carmen Suite, besides Vishneva Ivan Oskorbin-jose, alwxandra Iossifidi-Fate, Alexander Sergeev-toreodor, Roman Belyakov-Corehidor(?soelling) Asaben, Kamalova, Martiniuk-tobacco girls
  10. Had it been a different cast i would visit, but not this one
  11. Tickets start from $35 You can see much from the balcony Uliana and her team would be asked to dance as much as possible in the center of stage so that even from mist side seats one can see all I would HIGHLY recommend (at least one of) Uliana's nights
  12. Lafemme if you keep your 25th ticket you'd see a Carmen with Diana and (only 3-4 min) dying swan with Uliana. As per BAM's web-site 26&28 will provide lots of classical excerpts
  13. As per Diana Vishneva website, she'd dance Carmen (suite) on 25th and Carmen (suite) and Wiman in a room on 27th
