   You will see the cast of the premiere except for other dances.
In the night is a superb romantic ballet where Gaida and Legris make first pdd with lyricism, Arbo before her retirement in two weeks the 8 march was absolutely perfect in the second ppd inside of Kader Belarbi.
In the 3d pdd, Aurelie Dupont has the hard way to succeed to Guerin who was absolutely terrific in this pdd. Even Aurelie danced very well, it missed something. Hilaire is good against.
After intermission, it was The Cage creation. Guerin is absolutely amazing in this rule of sort of insect. The ballets means to Giselle second act with a Queen, a young novice and two men, the first who is killed as Hilarion without pity and the second danced by Le Riche who attract the novice in his arms before she killed him. Letestu as Queen is perfect by her autority. Le Riche is good but what does he make in this sort of ballet, he's a character dancer.
Other dances was dancing with Arbo and Legris. They engraved their pas, they dance very precise. Arbo danced as Makarova, Legris is always brilliant in this sort of dance.
The concert was rarely so bright interpreted by Guérin and Delanoé as Husband. Guérin is absolutely funny in this rule and unforgettable. Delanoé is perfect too.
Tonight I saw an other cast better in In the night because more lyric. Against int The cage Laetitia Pujol dances so well but she's not an interpret. She's too shy, near to the choreography and she too small for Marie-Agnès Gillot' queen. Romoli agains as man was absolutely genious. Other dances is completely different with GUerin and Hilaire, they dance it very cooly. It's not the same ballet. Moussin dance the leader rule in The Concert and was absolutely terrific too, it's hard to dance just after Guérin in this rule and she arrived to make forget Guérin. She has her own interpretation and really could be an etoile but the Direction seems to not love her talent which is really sad, because pass to lyricism to laugh in the same evening it's not easy and she arrived to that without problem.

   The eurostar has brought me back to the UK...unfortunatley! Im going to live in Paris...what a magical city...been there loads of times but it still gets me...anyhow. Never been to Palais Garnier before..must say it's one of the most beautiful theaters i have been to...its small size gives it that intimaticy that other larger opera houses lack. I love Chagalls ceiling

Very Impressed w/ the POB..their movements were just so fluent..I dont really enjoy modern ballets...but i love that mixed programmne. My friend who was with me prefers RB's version..but I like POB...its all ones personal taste.

Was in one of the small boxes...but unfortunatley i had to stand up the whole preformance as 2 large americans were infront of me..and they chatted throughout the whole preformance. Must say that the Palais Garner sight lines are not that great...more on the preformance latter

must sleep.
