Greta was fantastic as Giselle. She bourréed her way right into my heart! Unfortunately her pairing with Aleksandar Antonijevic did not live up to their performance in Swan Lake. Maybe it’s me but I think Antonijevic works much better with Kimberly Glasco.<P>There were actually 30 empty double letter seats for opening night of Giselle. The subscription to the double letter seats can only be purchased by those who give a large amount to the ballet. Why they would not show up for Greta Hodgkinson boggles the mind. With all apologies to Kimberly Glasco, Hodgkinson is their best dancer. I’m afraid she’s too good to remain with the NBoC for much longer. I’m sure some other company will make an offer to her. <P>As I've written before, Greta Hodgkinson is an alabaster bathing beauty!<BR><P>------------------<BR>Michael Goldbarth

The world revolves around the beauty of the ballerina.
