    2003 CONCERT SERIES AT THE RINK OF ROCKEFELLER PLAZA

    Ice Theatre of New York, the city's most prominent
    artistic ice dance company, is presenting the last performance of its
    2003
    Concert Series at The Rink at Rockefeller Plaza on Wednesday, March 19,
    at
    1 PM (rain date the following day). This performance is free to the
    public
    and features the Ensemble and special guest artists who together perform
    a
    diverse and exciting program.

    &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp Ice Theatre repertory works by Katherine Healy and Associate
    Artistic Director Doug Webster will be performed by the Company
    Ensemble.
    THROUGH THE GLASS, DARKLY, choreographed by Healy, is an ice ballet in
    memory of Olympic Gold Medalist/ World Champion John Curry. Healy is a
    former principal dancer with the Vienna State Opera Ballet Company, Les
    Ballets de Monte Carlo, and the London Festival Ballet. Webster's work,
    ON
    THE TOWN, is set in the 1940s to the music of Leonard Bernstein. The
    playful piece features nine skaters, the joyous music propelling them
    through a delightful celebration of New York City's vibrancy.

    &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp Performing as a special guest artist is two-time Swiss National
    Champion Lucinda Ruh, who is renowned for her sleek, artistic spins.
    Ruh
    will give a special sneak preview of her attempt to be in the Guinness
    World Records as the world's fastest spinner during a special event on
    April 3, 2003 at Sky Rink, Chelsea Piers.

    Ice Theatre will also present works by Healy and
    Webster
    during the performance of the 2003 New Works and Young Artists Series at

    on
    Thursday, March 20, at 10:30 AM. This series serves individuals from
    the
    Harlem and Washington Heights areas through free performances and
    skating
    instructions for the audience. (Program subject to change).

    ICE THEATRE OF NEW YORK This was theater on a gleaming white surface in
    a
    space like an arctic circle. Each piece had a dramatic arc and told a
    tale,
    from the lavish passion of Jacqulyn Buglisi's "Dreame" to the mounting
    grief of Doug Webster's "Departures." Technique served expression. Even
    the
    sound of blades cutting the ice had meaning. (Margo Jefferson - The New
    York Times, 10 Moments in Theater)

    Eltamina - If I can get there I will and report.

    rGirl - I've only watched the company for the past three years and in that time they are either excellent or just so so. Last time out, they were excellent. Of course, Healy and Ruhe do add some class to the company. I believe Webster has done some good work before so I am looking forward to see what he can do with Jerome Robbins.

    Ladd - How wonderful that would be to see Kurt, Ilia and
    Todd in sailor outfits trying to make it with two ladies of the night. Could work on ice. I think so. Send a note to SOI.

    on the town -- I think they did that on the first wednesday this season in Rock center. There were sailors and women clad in 1940's frocks. It was snowing out and made a very pretty picture.

    I'll probably go to see Lucinda Ruh.
