I sort of gave myself a mental exercise, because I do like the lighter quality of the white in Barocco. But Agon needs not only the black, but the contrast of the black and white in the sections where the whole cast is on stage.

Tie between Symphony in C and 'Diamonds' portion of Jewels for second place. (Yeah, I'm greedy!)

I still see new things in this ballet each time I see it... and I have seen it many, many times! And, the casting doesn't seem to make as much a difference in my enjoyment of Serenade as it does for other ballets (e.g., Barocco, Apollo). Four T's would be my back-up, though it's not a sentimental favorite of mine. It is, however, the other ballet that stands up against bad casting for me (not that i have seen many bad casts).

editing to add: Stowell did dance in Liebeslieder. I have a beautiful photo by Martha Swope of him and a very young Suzanne Farrell in the "whispering" duet.
