Hi, Haglund! I've seen Sarah Van Patten in Swan Lake(her debut), Onegin, Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, and Neumeier's The Little Mermaid. She is a most remarkable and unique dancer-actress as she does not make faces or overwrought gestures, and the emotions come out from beneath and through her skin. She is translucent. She also took my breath away in the Jewels Diamonds pas de deux. You cannot predict what she will give you - what a Sarah Van Patten performance will be. She does not dance at the audience or put on a display.
I love the San Francisco Ballet dancers and I fly up from Los Angeles to San Francisco several weekends each season to see them in multiple performances, including their Nutcracker. It has been a joy to read all the appreciative comments from the audience in New York about the dancers. As for Suite en Blanc, your description of your reaction matches my elation when I saw the Paris Opera Ballet dance it in Chicago two summers ago.

Thank you, Haglund, again, for your commentaries.

Thanks, J.
