  7. Fabulous that you stayed up so late to see the live stream. Yes the corps de ballet of this company is very good, well rehearsed and today was the final performance so they are getting better day by day. Takafumi Watanabe is not Ayako Ono's regular partner so there might have been a little partnering issues but otherwise a good performance. Wonderful that you got the chance to see Raymonda at Kennedy Center, I envy you! Raymonda will be their next performance in June so fingers crossed that they can perform with audience this time.
  8. Dear Jeanette, I am very happy to know you are enjoying the relay. It is a cute but bitter in the end production, and yes it might be nice for ABT. (I remember seeing Coppelia at ABT with Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes about 15 years ago) Ayako Ono is one of the best ballerinas in Japan and Swanilda is the perfect role for her. Yamamoto is a former principal at the company and used to dance Franz in his prime years but his acting this time is really touching (and sometimes creepy but sophisticated). I also remember seeing Petit himself dance this role with much compassion. Hope you have enjoyed the second half as well!
  9. Nijisky by Marco Goecke, Teatro Massimo is currently streaming.

  11. Mariinsky Ballet streamed the 2nd act of Swan Lake with Lopatkina and Ivanchenko. They will stream the 3rd act on the 7th.(which I posted above) Lopatikina's legendary Odette is a mesmerizing experience.
  12. Mariinsky Ballet will stream Swan Lake with Ulyana Lopatkina and Yevgeny Ivanchenko from their back catalogue.
  13. So saddened to know the passing of Katherine Barber. Such a passionate, knowledgeable, kind, generous and lovely lady. I met her several times in Tokyo, Toronto and other cities and was looking forward to see her again. Rest in peace. The ballet world is not the same without her.
