The fastest five days ever
It went by in a flash.
I leave tomorrow morning for Bristol to rest for a day with my brother and sister in law, then back home.
There were more substitutions today. Rojo did not dance; I saw Lamb a second time instead.
All told, I think Sylphide was a success. None of the casts was perfect, none were bad. All had different virtues. All the men looked better coached than they have before. Englund did two performances, each different. The final one was the most explicit playing of an attraction for James by Madge I have ever seen. I don't think it's the best reading, but at this point I think Englund has a right to it. Kobborg hasn't given them a Danish Sylphide either, he's given them the one that seems to suit the company, and one they look good in.
Off to bed.
