Re: Exciting Ballet News

How delightful, Dick - may you and Esther have a wonderful time! I shall be sure to look for the music of Lauren Fox. (Actually, her name, and the show, sounds very familiar.

Re: Exciting Ballet News

I shall do my best to find out about any video or other artifacts! I'm still buoyed by the whole experience - despite jet-lag and other travel aches. The audience, myself included, loved it.

It IS tremendously exciting, Lizzy :) And the dance, each of the vignettes, is beautiful and I hoping, but, don't know the likelihood - that there may be video, or some way for this to be experience more widely.

Re: Exciting Ballet News

's a pleasure, Dick! Travelling half-cross this rather large country, I've just made it home from the opening/premiere of " The Doorway - Scenes from Leonard Cohen " - it's a marvelous and moving work.
