A performance, in the performing arts, generally comprises an event in which a performer or group of performers present one or more works of art to an audience. Usually the performers participate in rehearsals beforehand. Afterwards audience members often applaud. After a performance, performance measurement sometimes occurs. Performance measurement is the process of collecting, analyzing and reporting information regarding the performance of an individual, group, organization, system or component.
The means of expressing appreciation can vary by culture. Chinese performers will clap with the audience at the end of a performance; the return applause signals "thank you" to the audience. In Japan, folk performing-arts performances commonly attract individuals who take photographs, sometimes getting up to the stage and within inches of performer's faces.
Sometimes the dividing line between performer and the audience may become blurred, as in the example of "participatory theatre" where audience members get involved in the production.
The DVD comes in with two different styles, one being made of super jewel and another made of Amaray. The two contain the same track listings and features. The DVD movie features half of the movie of live performances while the other half includes a Selena special which is presented by Johnny Canales.
Selena Performances was originally named Johnny Canales presenta... Selena (English: Johnny Canales presents... Selena) and was going to be released during the fall of 2008. Due to new management for EMI Latin Records the DVD was postponed. The DVD was originally planned to be a DVD of various performances of Selena during the Johnny Canales Show from 1990 to 1994 but the record company complied for a DVD that included both various live performances and a special that would talk about Selena's legacy currently. The promotional poster, talks about an upcoming Television film based on Selena's death, similar to the Famous Crime Scene: Selena that aired on VH1. The television film will be produced by The Walt Disney Company set to be released in 2011. The upcoming Selena United States Stamp Collection and the upcoming Selena museum tour is also talked about on the promotional poster.
In peacetime the rank of Full General is reserved for the Commander of Finnish Defence Forces. Sometimes a General's branch of service is indicated in the rank. So far Finland has had seventeen of jalkaväenkenraali (General of Infantry), a few of jääkärikenraali (Jägergeneral), two of ratsuväenkenraali (General of Cavalry) and one tykistönkenraali (General of Artillery). Marshal Mannerheim himself was the other one of the two Generals of Cavalry before his promotion to Field Marshal.
The General was inaugurated in 1937, and carried coaches and Pullmans. It received some new lightweight equipment in 1938 as part of the fleet of modernism, but it was mostly heavyweight until 1940. It was the only "Fleet of Modernism" train to be streamlined without an observation car. It lost its coaches when the Advance General was inaugurated in 1940. It was re-equipped with lightweight sleeping cars from both the pre-war Broadway, and new cars from post-war orders. At this time, it also carried the Broadway's pre-war observation cars. In 1951 the General lost its all-Pullman status when it was combined with the all-coach Trail Blazer for non-peak travel periods only. In 1952 this consolidation became permanent, and by 1960, the Trail Blazer name was dropped. In 1967 the General was renamed the Broadway Limited when that train lost its numbers and all-Pullman status.
