Con la W de…

Western Symphony. Tan superficial y elegante que estremece. Viva Balanchine.

Wagner, Richard. Tuvo que incorporar un bailable a su Tannhäuser para que se lo dejaran estrenar en L’Opéra de Paris. El pobre… imaginen el drama. Luego se lo bailó Isadora en Bayreuth, pero para entonces él ya había decidido morirse.

Waltz. La vida, siempre, debería ir a 3/4.

Wendy. De niña soñaba con salir volando de la mano de Peter Pan [aquí, quien quiera, que se ría].

Williams, Stanley. O cómo prescindir de todo lo inútil que pueda haber en una clase de ballet. Chapeau.

Weber, Carl Maria von. “”Qué raro… ¡una mujer compositora!”, decía alguien viendo Le spectre de la rose. Inmejorable comentario.

What is this thing called love. Pues eso digo yo. Que Cole Porter era un sabio.

Wigman, Mary. Puf, qué oscuro, todo.

Wiesenthal, Hermanas [Grete, Else, Bertha y Marta]. Puaj, qué meloso, todo.

WordPress. Una amiga experta me recomendó: “Si no está en WordPress, no es un blog de verdad”. Y aquí estoy.

Western Symphony. So superficial and elegant that makes me shudder. Balanchine, always.

Wagner, Richard. He had to incorporate a ballet to his Tannhäuser, so it could be premiered at the Paris Opera. Poor man, what a drama. Years later, Isadora danced it in Bayreuth, but at that time he had just decided to pass away.

Waltz. Real life, always, should be a 3/4.

Wendy. As a child I dreamed of flying out holding Peter Pan’s hand [now, you are allowed to laugh].

Williams, Stanley. Or how to avoid anything useless in a ballet class. Chapeau.

Weber, Carl Maria von. ” How strange… a woman composer!” said someone about Le spectre de la rose. Excellent comment.

What is this Thing Called Love. That’s what I say. Cole Porter was a genius.

Wigman, Mary. Ugh, how dark, everything.

Wiesenthal, Sisters [Grete, Else, Bertha & Martha]. Yuck, how sugary, everything.

WordPress. A friend, an expert on these things, recommended me: “If it’s not at WordPress, it’s not a blog”. And here I am.
