The Corner-reading masses have been clamoring, “Jay, what did you think of the Bolshoi’s Swan Lake at the Koch Theater last night?” Okay, okay: I have a piece on the subject at Armavirumque, The New Criterion’s blog — here. The piece is mainly about the place of music in ballet. Knock yourself out.
(By the way, how much do the people who work in the Koch Theater hate that it’s called the Koch Theater? If ever I’m feeling blue, I think of it, and it makes me smile.)
