The weather was hot. I wore a shift dress. But carry a shawl or sweater - the air conditioning inside is cold..

We have tried various places near Lincoln Center and have not been disappointed. Last night we had fried oysters and blackberry martinis Faboulous

Quotes & Highlights

“Sir Frederick Ashton’s sumptuous ballet is a big spectacle, with its lush music and splendid settings. ABT’s staging would have delighted the creator himself.” —The New York Post on ABT’s 2005 production of Sylvia

Description

*June 24-29, 2013: Sylvia

*A ravishing fantasy set amid verdant forests and majestic temples, Sir Frederick Ashton’s mythological love story unites the huntress Sylvia and a lovelorn shepherd with the divine intervention of the deity Eros. The splendid score by Leo Delibes was so admired by Tchaikovsky that he purportedly declared: had he known the music existed at the time, he would never have composed Swan Lake!

*July 1-6, 2013: _The Sleeping Beauty

_*Incensed by being snubbed at the christening of Princess Aurora, the wicked fairy Carabosse casts a curse on the child, proclaiming that she will one day prick her finger and die.  The Lilac Fairy intervenes, and when the fateful day arrives, the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep. Over a century later, a prince is guided to the castle by the Lilac Fairy to awaken the sleeping princess with a kiss. A treasured fairy tale, this perennial delight is often love at first sight. _

Approximate running time 2 hrs. 35 min.

ABT recommends that children be at least 6 years of age to attend the Company’s performances at the Metropolitan Opera House.___
