Venue Details

The weather was nice warm evening. I wore a love dress, strappy heels and brought a wrap just in case the weather chilled down inside of the theatre, but I did not need it..

Firebird: Dancing was great (as usual) but the choreography didn't excite me and the stage set overwhelmed the production.

The first item on the program: Duets by Merce Cunningham was terrific.
