Farm Share fruit share week 2
Ok, so I've been unbelievably delinquent in my blogging this month.  So... here are some quick notes on NYC food experiences over the past month - 5 restaurants and my new farm share adventure - and I promise to follow soon to catch up on the theater, dance and movies I've seen!

Oh! Where have you gone?

So, in addition to principals Jose Manuel CarreƱo and Michele Wiles and soloist Carlos Lopez, some other names disappeared from the ABT website today - in the corps de ballet.

David Hallberg guesting with Mariinsky in London this week

So ABT's lovely David Hallberg is off to London this week to dance with the Mariinsky, where according to the ROH website he'll be dancing Swan Lake opposite Viktoria Tereshkina and Ekaterina Kondaurova, and Scotch Symphony with Maria Shirinkina.  I really enjoyed Kondaurova a few weeks ago at Lincoln Center - I almost wish she'd been brought in as a guest to ABT instead of Semionova or Osipova.  (Well, if ABT is going to HAVE to have guests at all....which is another matter entirely).  I'm a little jealous of the London audience right now - if you have the luck to see any of these pairings definitely let me know what you think!
