Remembering that the original of this Mozartiana was led by Farrell and Andersen (and their respective sizes) it is reasonable to assume that Stiefel's partner in that (if he does indeed do it this spring) could be Murphy. Their height difference is greater than than of SF and IA. I have no doubt that H. Cornejo will dance the (unpartnered) 2nd man's role.

Oh, god forbid. I can just see it, and with Dvorovenko and Belotserkovsy as the leads. There is a cast to see for all the wrong reasons.

Thanks for the info regarding the brochure. Can't wait for the Balanchine tribute casting. Maybe, Kevin M. ,have been waiting for this program to finally give us some pleasant surprises for Ms M. and P.

I only saw Meunier in the Elder Sister's costume, so I don't know exactly what shape she's in, but re: Part in the Harrison, if this be overweight, it is a gorgeous alternative to the extremely spare silhouette favored by many other ABT leads.
I see Murphy as anything but an ideal partner for Stiefel, although he partnered her heroically at the Met last season.

Actually, Dale, I had thought that on pointe, Murphy would tower over Stiefel, but last spring they danced together many times, and they are a well-matched pair, she on pointe just a tad shorter than he. I remember Farrell on pointe as being close in height to Andersen, probably closer than Murphy and Stiefel. I think that was the point I was trying to make.
carbro, so you think Murphy is taller than Stiefel, even on pointe? I always thought so but an ABT watcher pointed out that she dances a lot taller than she is.
