"Is anyone going to Manon tonight and more."
 
   Is anyone going tonight ? I am going next week and wonder how it will work out with Cope because the production depends so much on the pas de deux and the difference in height worries me. Also surely this was to be Durante/Mukhamedov's last Manon. I do hope Irek recovers soon.

   My thoughts exactly Sasha. It still has Viviana and is still Manon one of my faves but....

I agree that Viviana and Cope don't work well together cos of the height difference -esp when they are such physical pas de deux. Still I could be proved wrong. It is a role that Viviana excels in so she may be more comfortable with Cope than when she has danced with him in the past (eg in the recent Thais pas deux).

Who is dancing Lescaut/his mistress?

   It is supposed to be Christina Mcdermott and it probably is. I like her. Not only will the difference in height be noticeable between the two principals but in Manon the rapport between Irek and viv was electric. I do hope he makes a miraculous recovery.

   Oh no! No Irek last night perhaps means no Irek on Friday??

I chose that performance to introduce my husband to 'Manon' after he gazed at the TV mesmerized during the Cope-Guillem pas de deux of the opening gala. Having seem the production with them in the lead and Mukhamedov and Bull as Lescaut and his mistress, I thought it would be a perfect evening for him....The 'drunken' pas de deux is quite a feat and a treat with those two in the roles.

I wish Irek a speedy recovery!
