  1. This piece was created on Kramer and Tewsley and they had a lot of input on the choreography.
  2. Watch company class from Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris on World Dance Day, April 29, on their facebook page, starting at 12.25 pm in Europe, 11.25 in the UK, 6.25 am Eastern Time
  3. and it's absolutely fantastic so don't miss it! Start at 5:00 for full-on dancing. You should be able to see this even if you don't have a facebook account
  4. New York City Ballet is live-streaming a rehearsal of Justin Peck’s Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes with Sara Mearns, Russell Janzen, Daniel Ulbricht, Gonzalo Garcia, Anthony Huxley, and other dancers Thursday April 18 at noon New York time, which I think is 5 pm British time.
  5. I recommend taking the bus instead as you get to see NY above ground and it's cheaper than the subway. But the subway is better if you have a long distance to travel.
  6. you also might want to check out this exhibition http://isaw.nyu.edu/exhibitions/ballets-russes?fbclid=IwAR3Uqhcpehn30YlG9fSN4bcD5JLdx4lA9A5iOEZSBdXJIVjdhLo0VICMiAE Hymn to Apollo The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes March 6 – June 2, 2019 What can we know about ancient dance? Why did European avant-garde artists look to antiquity at the beginning of the twentieth century? With an array of ancient representations of dance, Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballet Russes explores both the role of dance in ancient culture and the influence of antiquity on the modernist reinventions of the Ballets Russes, the ground-breaking dance company founded in Paris by Sergei Diaghilev. With about 100 works, including outstanding examples of ancient pottery, sculpture, and metalwork, as well as watercolors, sketchbooks, photographs, costumes, and other archival material from the Ballets Russes, this exhibition—the first on the topic—reveals a rich, multifaceted dialogue between the ancient and the modern. More than a simple story of the reception of antiquity by artists in the twentieth century, Hymn to Apollo shows how artists returned to antiquity not as benighted traditionalists but as radical revolutionaries, intent on creating something new.
  7. re tipping: I know this will come as a shock to the British, but 20% of the bill now seems to be standard for tipping in restaurants. I don't know if this has changed since NY"s minimum wage went up to $15 an hour a few months ago. In Canada 15% is standard.
  8. Le Pain Quotidien 60 W 65th St is also good and very reasonable for light meals (salad, quiche, sandwiches etc.) https://www.lepainquotidien.com/us/en/locations/lincoln_plaza/60-w-65th-st?utm_source=google&utm_medium=business-listing&utm_campaign=
  9. There is now also a tkts booth at Lincoln Center, Located in the David Rubenstein Atrium at 61 West 62nd Street, just across the street from the Koch Theater. For some shows they release tix the day before. https://www.tdf.org/nyc/81/TKTS-Live?loc=linc For affordable but good food I recommend Bonmi on 62nd St (south side of Lincoln Center campus, near Amsterdam Av)
  10. I second this. You do have to get a temporary visitor library card (good for three days I think), free at the front desk of the library
  11. As it is a coproduction with the National Ballet of Canada, I expect NBOC has exclusive N American rights to it for the next five years. That seems to be how the copros work (eg Ratmansky R&J and Wheeldon Alice and Winter's Tale.)
