    2018 Met Season

    Hmm I think if anything ABT's audience is more conservative and a bigger chunk of the audience thinks ballet starts with Swan Lake and ends with Romeo and Juliet. Those two ballets seem to sell out no matter who's dancing, while ABT struggles to fill seats even for La Bayadere. I will be watching Ratmansky's Harlequinade with eager eyes but part of me will miss this lovely dance Balanchine did for Colombine/Patricia McBride:

    I would have thought that ABT’s new Ratmansky Harlequinade would have drawn a broader and rather different audience than NYCB’s Harlequinade, but perhaps that explains it.

    I don't think so. He has an Instagram story up that says he's in NYC for the weekend to see his ABT friends. He was probably taking class with the company and using the men's dressing room afterwards (and hanging out with his friends).

    Harlequinade rarely sells well at NYCB either. Think the commedia dell'arte storyline is rather cruel and unappealing for the average ballet goer.

    Interestingly, as of this afternoon, the Sat eve Copeland performance looked no better sold than the Fri eve non-Copeland performance — at least in orchestra.

    For whatever reason, whether it's the hardware in her leg(s) or the difficulty of the steps, or a combination of both, if Copeland were to miss the hops and fall, it could disappoint her fans (or not) and give another reason for her non-fans to complain that she cannot do the required steps. Maybe Brandt will pick up some new fans, as she's such a gorgeous dancer and can do anything. According to her first teacher, who told his adult students directly, I among them, she was doing 32 fouettes on pointe at the age of 10.

    I'm very surprised that casting in Harlequinade was changed after the Copeland fans, no doubt, bought tickets.

    At Monday's Gala, the Hunt of the Larks pas de deux from Harlequinade included a series of fast backwards hops on pointe for Columbine, repeated three or four times, for which Boylston received a well-deserved round of applause. It's exactly the sort of movement Copeland would find difficult to execute. Copland is not injured. Prior to tonight's performance of Firebird, Connor Holloway hosted an Instagram live-stream story featuring Copeland having her Firebird makeup and hair prepared for the show, in which she mentioned her double-performance day today.
