Hi!<BR>Any reviews from Saratoga? <P>There are some intriguing debuts this week and next week up at Saratoga:<BR>This afternoon: Ulbricht, Hendrickson and Veyette in "Interplay" <P>Next week:<BR>Mandradjieff, Krohn and Dronova in "Raymonda Variations". (Arthurs, Keenan and Bar will/have also debuted in this piece at Saratoga).<P>Bouder and Ulbricht in "Tarantella" (now that should be interesting!) Ulbricht seems to really have caught Martins' eye, and despite being only about 5ft6, has been cast in many roles (sailor in Fancy Free, faun in "Four Seasons", Vienna Waltzes corps, Interplay, gigue from "Mozartiana", tea, candycane and soldier in "Nutcracker", "Prodigal Son" corps, "Firebird", Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet, jester in "Sleeping Beauty" etc)-and he's still just 18.<P>In Vienna Waltzes: Rutherford in the first section, Ash in the Explosions Polka and Ringer in "Gold Und Silber Walzer".<P><BR>Any comments-or even better, will anyone be seeing any of these new casts?!<BR>Kate

Hi!<BR>It has been confirmed that Kathleen Tracey is retiring after this Saratoga season. She will be giving her last performance this Tuesday as the princess in "Firebird". Good luck to her in whatever she chooses to do post-NYCB!!<P>Very interesting to see how the rosters of both NYCB and ABT are changing for the 2002-03 year. NYCB seems to be losing more at the top, while ABT's corps will be quite different after the LA tour.<P>Kate

For those of you in Saratoga, keep the reviews coming!!!! It is so nice to be able to read the posts about the performances...especially when you can't be there to see them. Anyone have any thoughts about the debuts in "Raymonda Variations"?

I just caught up with the article on Karla Korbes. I enjoyed her performances last year in "Moves" and as Titania in "A Midsummer Night's Dream."<P>A couple of things in this article caught my eye. First of all, she is 5'8" according to the article -- another tall dancer doing very well in a major company. <P>Within the past month we have had some discussion in this forum on Balanchine technique and here we go again. According to Korbes:<P>"Balanchine would never let you put your heels down. He wanted you to be ready to go."<P>

Thanks very much ksneds for all this information, but especially the link to the interview with Albert Evans. When small groups of New York dancers have come to London, it has been Evans who has impressed me the most. His combination of power, technique and easy grace make him a compelling dancer.
