Re: Exciting Ballet News

Here's hoping it will eventually travel far and wide. I'm just learning about Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet , and, as North America's longest continuously operating ballet, they are a very active touring company.

Re: RWB Premieres "The Doorway - Scenes from Leonard Cohen"

Thanks, Lizzy :) it's good to see you, too! We've been sticking to our knitting, Allison and I, and it's turning into quite the quilt ;-) Obviously, this is not our production, and, so, how the future unfolds is the design of the RWB . I will be sure to let you and everyone know should there be oppo...

I was greatly delighted upon learning of it, and still am cheered, that Leonard's music is given its own channel (for however long). Such ...

I've heard this song 3 times now on the Cohen station. Hey CBC - he's not your man! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLbOf2QOV4o Quite right, Steve, and what you point out is a problem with the new CBC Music streaming channels.
