"...that will surely rekindle the heat under scores of Center Stage fans who as of last summer were still streaming into the Met Opera House to scream their lungs out when Stiefel and Sascha Radetsky performed on the stage together."

Ahahaha. I would've been guilty of this if I lived in NYC and had the chance to go. Alas, I made do with YT curtain call vids and pics of Cooper, er Ethan's last performance. I am excited for everyone at RNZB and am deeply curious what this collaboration with Kobborg will look like.

Interesting and innovative! Can't wait to see it.

The new AD of RBNZ really puts some other AD to shame. RBNZ might think about asking Stella to dance some performances of Giselle when they take the ballet on tour. Maybe even Stella AND Sascha.

Hi Angelica. Hope you are dry up in your area.

Totally agree that RNZB has struck AD gold.

We're dry but we lost power for 3 1/2 days and a tree limb made a hole in our dining room roof. After last year's Irene, we had a generator installed, so the loss of power wasn't a problem. The roof has a temporary patch, which the roofer will fix permanently in due course.

Amid all this, I kept thinking how fortunate that the storm didn't occur during ABT's fall season because I would have had no way of getting into the city. I was also glad that the members of ABT were out of New York when this occurred. But then I worried about what they'd find upon return to their homes.

I was also reflecting on ABT's new firm policy that there will be NO exchanges of tickets due to weather conditions. ABT says it WILL PERFORM AS SCHEDULED, NO MATTER THE WEATHER, and if you can't make it to the performance, tough on you. They put this policy in writing after the December Nutcracker snowstorm created blizzard conditions and many people wanted to exchange their tickets. Instead of making the exchanges requested, ABT had empty seats at BAM.

One more reason to hold donations hostage....

My hope is that while certain dancers were stuck out of the country due to the storm, they used it as a good opportunity to travel around and audition for companies that would appreciate them more.
