I cannot disagree with the below! Taking photos of dancers at the bar
...instead of the barre
makes for much more interesting images!
I liked the idea of having them at the bar...
As for Côté, we`ll just have to wait and see what happens. I was always under the impression a dancer’s career was longer in Europe? I’m sure he will dance until he’s 40-Same for Ogden. We should give Nehemiah Kish
a call and ask him how he is doing?
If I was a ballet dancer, I would catch the 1st flight to Europe. The National only presents half a dozen ballets a year for the subscription season along with their Nutcracker and perhaps a trip out West, that is about it.
Canada is hockey mad, not ballet mad-Just my 2 cents. Plus, there is so much more history and things to see and experience in Europe. What do you have here? For most Canadians their idea of culture is a parking lot and a shopping mall! If Rob Ford was major of Vienna, he would pave Prater Park into a parking lot, the Danube would be used to dump toxic waste, and Mozart would be replaced by Don Cherry! Just wait until the HST kicks in for subscription ballet prices next year. Sure the European economy is on a Maples Leafs losing streak-At least there every town has a bakery and in some cities, there is a bakery on every corner.
"The streets of Vienna are paved with culture,the streets of other cities with asphalt."
Karl Kraus (1874-1936)
