The worst Giselle I've ever seen was an ABT production (Paloma was Giselle ... uggh!), and their new Sleeping Beauty is a complete waste of money and time. There are many American companies operating at a higher level than ABT: SFB, PNB, MCB, and Boston come to...

Quote: Originally Posted by davidsj I figured there would be some intense rivalry with NYCB, I really really despise NYCB. It's disgraceful that the Kirov had to perform at City Center last spring. NYCB has no control over schedulings at the State Theater outside its seasons. Whatever rental income the theater can generate, it offsets against the operating costs of the theater, which both NYCO & NYCB are responsible for. So it's their best...

It cracks me up every time. --Andre I really enjoyed the Appian Way and the chariots sequence was pure shock & awe. Speaking of Le...
