Severely, I found the ballet about 10 years in the past, and go regularly. I’m lucky to dwell in NYC which provides me prepared entry to the NYCB (the place I’ve a subscription) and ABT plus many different corporations.
And sure, if I’m watching a night efficiency of three quick ballets, typically I lose focus by the third. However a DVD just isn’t a real substitute for attendance in individual. First, solely a really small portion of e.g. Balanchine’s work is preserved on video. And the digicam modifications the ballet. I wish to select what I take a look at on stage. When Balanchine participated within the Dance in America sequence within the 1970’s he adjusted the dancing for the digicam, so that’s an exception. I do not know the way usually that’s the case.
