|Koch Theater for ballet, Lincoln Center, New York|
|Koch theater lobby|
|Paris Opera Ballet and étoile Aurélie Dupont|
The plan Sunday was to work, but New York proved irresistible. The Paris Opera Ballet and its shining étoile, Aurélie Dupont, was dancing at Lincoln Center -- a star hub in the New York performing arts scene. Lincoln Center's Koch Theater, above, was built especially for ballet.
(Sadly, photography was not allowed during performance, though I tried a too-far shot of Aurélie Dupont after her stunning star turn in Boléro. A small taste of that dance, with another prima ballerina, is here.)
