Miranda Weese

I didn't see much of Weese this winter. Is she injured, out of favor or what? I really missed her in works like Tsch. Pas, La Source and Donizetti where I saw too much of Bouree. Does any one know what's up?

I haven't heard she's hurt and loved what I did see of her - Donizetti Variations, Davidsbundlertanze, Episodes, even Stabat Mater, among other things.

In the realm of pure speculation, could it be that Martins is trying not to over-stress his key dancers?

A year ago Weese, Van Kipnis, Meunier, and Ansanelli all missed the spring season with injuries (the latter two missing the fall and winter also). There was a lot of criticism of Martins for over-using his dancers, particularly his younger ones when they were on a popular roll, until they broke down. This year he has avoided this. Only Jennie Somogyi, of everyone, danced last fall and this winter to the point where you wondered how they could continue to take it. And Jennie too was rested a good deal after about January 20th.
