Happy Valentine's Day


Recommended Posts

For those who celebrate, Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow.

Different arts organizations have programmed works around the holidays. The Met Opera is giving mixed signals with "Iolanta" and "Bluebeard's Castle" laugh.png . So is the Bolshoi Ballet, in this mini-interview with Maria Alexandrova, with English subtitles and practice clips:

The music is from "Romeo and Juliet," but they're rehearsing "Don Quixote," a much happier ending.

Thank you, Helene, this video is lovely and Maria Alexandrova is a wonderful dancer. We were blessed to enjoy the Bolshoi for six performances of Don Quixote last summer at Saratoga and I saw her dance Kitri. She was pretty spectacular and I look forward to seeing the Bolshoi again sometime (soon, I hope).

Happy Valentine's Day to our ballet community. May your day be filled with beauty & love and a graceful pas or two!
