July is over half gone and there's been a lot of activity in our household. The big news is that Max made his debut at the MET in ABT's production of The Dream. He played the character of the Changeling and knew his part cold.  He only had 2 of the 4 shows as he was sharing it with another boy but he wanted to do all of them.  And after the last show he asked me if there was anything else he could do next week in another ballet! Click on the video below to see it or check out for lots of photos and other videos.

The production of the Firebird was exciting for me. The ABT Orchestra played exceptionally well and the audience responded in kind. I hadn't done Firebird in 20 years and it felt just great doing it again. I left immediately after the MET season finished for a week in Taipei and another in Seoul. The rest of July and August will be spent at home enjoying the summer!

The presenter in Taipei was also a photographer and shot one of my rehearsals with the orchestra.
