    I have not watched it, but have it on CD (think there are 3 disks) and the music is wonderful.

    I saw NYCB’s production in February (for the second time). Choreography by Peter Martins. It’s not all that good. I also saw American Ballet Theatre’s production a few years back. ABT has since replaced that version with a new one choreographed by by Ratmansky after Petipa. I hope to see that in a few months.

    Indeed; Tchaikovsky's three ballets and among my favorite pieces of music of all time, and the story itself is charming; did you watch the original Disney movie?

    I sure hope I could visit Russia and watch a real Russian ballet, or at least if it will make it to Israel...

    Well, Ratmansky was director of the Bolshoi for four years, so I feel I'm getting close.

    Actually, I've seen the Mariinsky twice in NYC. The Bolshoi doesn't seem to get here as often.

    And tomorrow, I'm seeing (for the third time) Ratmansky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" performed by the NYCB.

    Is there any chance Mariinsky will come to Israel? Maybe they did and I missed? We do have quite a few people from Russia here, and last June me and my mother watched "the tale of tsar saltan" by real Russian performers...so they would have an audience, right?

    Th is a digraph in the Latin script. It was originally introduced into Latin to transliterate Greek loan words. In modern languages that use the Latin alphabet,

    22 years ago. I suspect it's changed. A lot.
