  1. School of American Ballet's Virtual Workshop (available until Monday, July 13 at 7pm ET)
  2. I received mine about 4:45pm yesterday, which for some reason arrived in my promotions folder...
  3. Scottish Ballet's The Fairy's Kiss (available until June 30)
  4. What a groundbreaking and amazing production! (I only knew of Creole Giselle from books and photos.) Ms Johnson was sublime. Ms Graves commanding and effortless. The whole company was magnificent (loved all the children in act 1). Costumes and sets stunning. The orchestra excellent. This version featured the most emotional act 2 I've seen; Giselle repeatedly pleading for Albert's life, even weeping at one point. I was breathless. BRAVO DTH!!!
  5. What a treat! And what a cast! Standouts for me was Les Sylphides (so otherworldly and romantic) and Theme and Variations (Gelsey and Mikhail...LEGENDARY). 🥰
  6. Lincoln Center's twitter account has tweets for the first two programs which include YouTube links (CARMEN.maquia and A Midsummer Night's Dream). Hopefully they will continue to tweet each program with links to view them. I, too, wasn't able to find anything about how long the non-NYCB programs will be available after they are first streamed.
  7. Royal Danish Ballet's A Folk Tale https://kglteater.dk/xtra/forestillinger/forestilling-et-folkesagn/?section=33063
  8. Wow oh WOW! I was blown away by MCB's Firebird. Everything -- the dancing, costumes, set, music -- was spectacular.
  9. Donizetti Variations was such a delight! Charming, upbeat, amazing feats. The leads were fantastic, yet the corps shone equally as bright. What a superb way to bookend the (Balanchine portion) spring digital season with Donizetti Variations and Allegro Brillante!😍
  10. Just finished Act I and was really struck by it. Beautiful waltz, lovely pas de trois, the dance of the goblets had me smiling. Wolfgang felt like a full-fledged character, his relationship with the prince endearing. (His reaction to being asked if he wanted to come with Siegfried to hunt was adorable!) Isaac's Siegfried was quite boyish and young before his mother turned everything upside down. The set and lighting was stunning, particularly during his solo, the stage going from dusk to night. I've seen many Act I Siegfried solos, yet never before had his restlessness, unidentifiable yearning felt so tangible.
