    Felt 24Preludes outstayed its welcome, and lacked a proper thread. Whilst there was undoubtedly some nice choreography and good execution it did feel like souped up class enchainments. The test will be how it fits other casts.

    Aeternum probably requires another viewing - the concept and the choreography didn't seem entirely in tune with each other. Whether this was the cast (I did not see Nunez) is hard to say - again this may depend on future casts' interpretations. Overall a B+ rather than straight A.

    I should add I would LOVE to see Ratmansky do a narrative work. The combination of strong, demanding classical technique and some of his more contemporary, personal touches could be electrifying especially for a company with the strength in actor/dancers such as the RB.

  2. Extraordinary Night! Thank you very much to all the dancers specially to M. Nuñez!! Aeternum was wonderful and the music of Britten, too!!
