  1. As did I! And I join in that hope! I have no idea whether my preferred seating choices were available, but my repeated efforts failed to procure any, and I was even more disappointed in the location of the few single seats I found avaiiable in my preferred price bands.
  2. I will never forget her Myrtha (those bourrees!) or her Lilac Fairy.
  3. What are the booking dates for the various categories of Friends?
  4. It did. From the 10 March announcement: The Royal Ballet is thrilled to return to live performances with three programmes of works ranging from Crystal Pite to Marius Petipa.
  5. That is indeed what is shown, although I believe it was Dominique Meyer who announced her promotion (Legris embraced her and gave her the flowers.). "First soloist" is the highest rank in the Vienna State Ballet--equivalent to "principal" or "etoile" elsewhere.
  6. I thought Mair's Swanilda in Pierre Lacotte's production of Coppelia was charming and beautifully danced.
  7. Perhaps they could reduce the cost a bit by not paying for presenters? (I omitted the series of adjectives that came to mind...)
  8. My email from Sarasota Ballet announcing the programs states that ticket holders will have 5 days to watch the program.
  9. I'm afraid I never saw the Schaufuss production (though I did see him dance Gennaro in the RDB's former production), so can' t compare. Andersen's second act uses the traditional storyline, which I gather that Schaufuss may have "tweaked."
  10. I attended the premiere of this production 5 years ago and then returned to Phoenix for its return last fall. I think it's a very good production, truer to Bournonville than the RDB's current production that was streamed earlier during the pandemic, and in particular I find Ib Andersen's second act far more satisfying and far better suited to the ballet.
  11. I prefer MacMillan’s 2d movement, which I think is not only very beautiful, but also better suits the way I hear the music, while the other movements are for me a much closer call.
