As Roger Hull correctly said some time ago Margaret King is the ultimate" rubber stamp" always eager to please the boss!
How can anyone reasonably assert that"experience required" means getting it after being hired.
KIng has shown absolutely no leadership as Council President and rarely has any comments or contributions to make at City Council meetings except as a booster of local downtown events. She has never owned property in the city nor has she ever paid a cent in City or School taxes.

Excellent story. A welcome change! I hope they will take an interest in the nearby neighborhood (unlike those departing!)

A little fact checking needed for the caption accompanying the photo: first act dancers wrongly identified as second act characters. The photo shows a happy Giselle with her friends in the village, not with the ghostly Wilis from the second act.

"Updating" has already been done by Peter Wright for this company. Further changes would most likely alter the look and feel of this timeless piece and prevent the audience from seeing the beauty of the original choreographical intent. One can appreciate the pace of this production and savor every moment for the classic that it is.

SPAC needs to learn how to promote the arts like Proctors in Schenectady does. SPAC never should have reduced the ballet season- another management and board failure. Same with loss of NYC opera. Shameful failures of leadership continue!

Watch MSNBC for an honest evaluation of her legacy -- or read the English press-- or examine comments by leading British university scholars. This is nonsense Mr Ginsberg!! I feel sorry for Skidmore students.
