Thanks, Cassandra for your review. Also thanks for your very fine observations about Ekaterina Osmolkina's "Swan Lakes" with the Royal Ballet. She is a favorite of mine.

Just a few more quick words about the "Swan Lake" performances that I saw, after looking at the notes that I made.

Two comments that I overheard seemed so 'right on'.

A man talking to some friends in front of me during the intermission after Veronika Part's Act II Odette.

" Did you see the way that she lifted her hand! ABT is such a fine company! "

A young lady in the lobby talking to her friends at the end of the same performance.

" Gomes was really hot ! "

All the Odiles that I saw seemed to be -- Above All -- a display of Compelling and Irresistible Sensuality.

Regarding Irina Dvorovenko, I noted that the audience, always a sea of Cheers and Whistles at the end of each performance that I was at, was possibly the most enthusiastic after her show of virtuosity and fineness.

Two more notes that I made about Gillian Murphy's performance.

"Fouettes -- The Only Thing That She Didn't Do Was Fly! She Certainly Tried! Triples and Arms Overhead Singles."

" Her Character Being A Symbol of Ideal Femininity -- An Ambassador for Womankind "
