  5. As I am tranferring over all of my videos to dvd's... I came across this version of The NUtcracker. I believe it is german, but I cannot pinpoint the company....I was wondering if anyone else has seen this production. It was released on December 21st, 1965. I must have taped it during a rebroadcast when I was around seven years old. It features Edward Villella, Patricia McBride, and Melissa Hayden.

  10. Here is more information regarding the staging of La Sylphide provided on the Pennsylvania website: http://www.paballet.org/season/production....id=32&src=l
  11. Attended last night (Sat. 6/6); all danced very well for the most part. I especially liked Julie Diana as the Sylph, and Zachary Hench was a precise, impassioned James--good balon AND batterie. BUT why does the lighting have to be so poor? And the corps sylphs' epaulement was ragged, something very noticeable in a Bournonville work. I didn't see the need to present Martin's Barber Violin Concerto, tho' both couples in it did well, and the guest violinist's playing offered a nice surprise. Why not just focus on delivering a top-notch Sylphide? Interestingly, the program did not say who
