"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.

From: ‘Giselle’ lovely as ever but maybe in need of updating

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!

From: Ballet’s stay at SPAC could gain a week

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.

Happy to see Don Rittner's picture at party. It's hard to believe that both the city and county eliminated his position when he has been such an asset to both. Shame on all the political operatives involved in those bad decisions.

Just a couple of things, voting no on the budget will not change the district administration or the school board this budget cycle, however it will constrain the district in how they spend the budget.(whatever the amount, inflated or not) Secondly ESL students may be able to speak English but they are not fluent in reading and writing the language, thus the extra expense.....the state tests are a written exam.

From: Having already rejected a school budget with a 4.8% tax increase, Schenectadians will vote June 16 on a revised budget with a 5.8% increase. If that fails, the district will adopt a contingency budget with a 15.8% increase. How will you vote on June 16?
