Re: Harsh Light Falls on Bolshoi After Acid Attack
What has happened is awful. But to turn this into a bashing of the Bolshoi and Russia seems insane to me. My final words on this are:
Living in London I have been to Sadlers Wells, the London Colliseum, and the Royal Ballet many times. I used to have a massive crush on Adam Cooper and various other dancers. However, when my father took me to see the Bolshoi in Le Corsaire and Spartacus at the Royal Opera House a couple of years ago, I was astounded. I love ballet, but I had never seen such remarkable dancing. I was pinned to my seat and stunned at the beauty of the performances. I do not have words to describe the level of dance I saw: the artistry, technique, and sheer brilliance. Not just the big stars and main leads, but the entire company. It was a level I had never seen before or since. And, at the detriment to my father's bank balance, I have seen a lot! I cannot imagine how any human being can dance like that!
I suppose my point is: a man got jealous and crazy and did a teriible thing. But please, to try and destroy the reputation of the Bolshoi by this act is just ridiculous!
Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.
Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
