Winter Storm Stella is now only a few hours outside of the New York metro area. Is she really going to sock us in with snow and wind so that we can't get to Costa Mesa to see our own Stella as the first Princess Tea Flower in Whipped Cream? Say it ain't so.
The casting for the Bolshoi in Cinema broadcast on Sunday March 19th looks pretty enticing. We hope that Olga is up to the task in Etudes although we are definitely not expecting to see any hopping fouettes. Praying for energetic tempi and a brave ballerina.
