  2. 2017 Fall Season

    Per Megan Fairchild's instagram she says she's making her debut as Odette/Odile.
  3. Why So LIttle Massine?

    The Parade costumes no longer exist. John Richardson who is writting a several volume biography of Picasso says the last time he saw the Manager's costume was in 1955 at an exhibit Richard Buckle put together. He said it was a cubist masterpiece – whereas the Joffrey reconstructions looked like "fake Picassos" (he was speaking as an art historian). He thought that they might have been tossed out after the show. The original choreography also apparently no longer exists. Massine on the 1964 revival of Parade (for Bejart?): from My Life in Ballet - via George Dorris' review of the Massine bio The Barnes foundation is apparently rebuilding their website, so hopefully that info will be back.
  4. Mariinsky in London 2017

    Yes, the 2017-18 season announcement states explicitly (in Russian) that it is the "transfer of Alexei Ratmansky's production at the National Ballet of Canada (Toronto, 2011)" and includes a couple of quotes from reviews in Canadian papers. p. 19 http://www.bolshoi.ru/upload/medialibrary/101/10149b16ff60c2403a87f9acf04bd93c.pdf Canadian critics and Alastair Macaulay reviewed it positively, but British critics gave it the thumbs down when the ballet was performed in London. Toronto audiences are similarly divided. I know people who like it, but also others who swear they will never go see it again.
  5. Yesterday
  6. You're right about the significance of the buy out. She was a consistent voice. And she wasn't afraid to pan a book by a writer from an important publisher. My gripe I guess is that book reviewing is no longer the great art it was, wide ranging and full of interesting insights.
  7. Fall 2017 Season

    I did see Kira Nichols and Sean Lavery perform Other Dances at NYCB. They may be casting it with shorter dancers now, but that wasn't always the rule.
