I wonder whether Programme A will include some of the same Ashton excerpts as the Fonteyn Gala.

I had assumed the dancers were finally going to get a break/some rest! Clearly not, at least for some of them. Sounds wonderful, but I hope they DO then get a break.

Some of those dancers also have appearances in China in July. It's "all go".

Does anyone know of any performances in New York later this month? I'm at a conference from July 23 for 4 nights and would love to see some ballet while I'm there but can't see anything on during those dates.

Bridie don’t forget the dancers choose to do all these extra events, so they aren’t obliged to miss out on potential rest periods.  They do it for international exposure, artistic fulfilment and the extra money.  Good on ‘em, too!

and SEATS starting at $10 (£8.26 on today's scale) in a 472 seat capacity theatre (originally opened as the Elgin in 1941 and renewed to a purely dance venue called The Joyce in 1981) which - happily - has sight lines that are far superior to, say, many of the places in the 'renewed' Linbury (which admittedly has a capacity of 392).

Includes Sissens in Ashton's Dance of the Blessed Spirits and Pajdak in his Isadora dances, and lots of other goodies.

 

Very jealous on both counts!

Thanks, Mandy.

 

It's just occurred to me that it currently seems easier to see Ed dancing in the US than in his home theatre :(
