Innocence



Leif and I had a date tonight and we headed to the Auditorium Theater to take in the fall program offered by the Joffrey Ballet. Under the thoughtful direction of Artist Director, Ashely Wheater, the company showcased the works of Robert Joffrey (Postcards), Jerome Robbin's (Into the Night), and Edwaard Liang (Age of Innocence). The evening was well spent. Into the Night was a marvel, however, the world premier performance of Age of Innocence was worth the price of addmission on it's own. It is clear Mr. Wheater is priming the men of his company to take thier place on the stage as stars, but their stand out performances (especially Calmels and Rogers) fell prey to the true stars of the evening Ms. Quiroz and Ms. Jaiani.
From the stunning ballet, Leif and I hit Trattoria 225 for a late dinner and a glass of wine.
Two dates in one week? I am blushing and happy!
