I’ve been researching different summer intensives and my dream ones for this year include Houston, PNB, Kirov, and San Francisco I am wondering if anyone who has been there before , or knows someone who has , knows how many people on average attend these intensives. Are they large? Or are they medium sized ?
PNB’s opening digital program was a delight! I had no problems accessing it...sharp, crisp, clear sight and sound. The dances offered a mix of traditional ballet (bits of Swan Lake, Jewels and Robbins’ DAAG), modern ballet (the late Albert Evans’ One Body - gorgeous male solo by the elegant Christopher D’Ariano) and perhaps too much time devoted to non-balletic modern dance (including a 15-minute solo to a mixture of Bach & ‘80s rock that seemed to never end). Why? - in a 75-minute program, why? Sigh. but... Heck, it was a start & I loved seeing the dancers in their main theatre in downtown Seattle. AND the remaining five programs between now and June 2021 will feature complete classical works, such as Balanchine’s Coppelia and Maillot’s Romeo&Juliet, so I’m a happy camper. Favorite moment for me: The “bracelet solo” from Emeralds, performed by PNB’s quintessential Romantic ballerina Leta Biasucci. She captured that Violette Verdi Spirit perfectly!
