Diana Adams, Bill Carter - danced the "whispering pas" in the first section where the couple walks slowly on a diagonal with the man whispering to the woman as they walk. I've seen Farrell and Kowroski in this role among others (in Paris, Agnes Letestu - Jean Guillaume Bart)
Melissa Hayden, Jonathan Watts - danced the final "swimming" pas. Others who've danced include Patricia McBride, Wendy Whelan and Jenifer Ringer in NY, and Delphine Moussin in Paris.
Violette Verdy, Nicholas Magallanes - danced the pas in the first section where she's swept prone into her partner's arms. Others in NY include Kyra Nichols and Pascale van Kipnis. In Paris, this was Aurelie Dupont.
Jillan, Conrad Ludlow - with no offense to them, for me, I can usually tell this part because it isn't the others! Also, that woman is the only to wear her hair in a low bun, and the role seems "younger" than the others. Ringer and Miranda Weese have also danced it in NYC, in Paris I saw Laetita Pujol.

Kistler, Whelan, Nichols, Weese
I'm assuming that means,
Kistler in Adams role
Whelan in Hayden's role
Nichols in Verdy's role
and Weese in Jilliana's role
Is that correct?
What does everyone think about that casting?

I saw twice at Paris with Agnès Letestu/Marie-Agnès Gillot + Jean-Guillaume Bart/Yann Saiz, AurélieDupont/Dorothée Gilbert + Laurent Hilaire/Nicolas Paul (POB sujet), Delphine Moussin/Isabelle Ciaravola + Manuel Legris/Benjamin Pech, and Laetitia Pujol/Nathalie Riqué + Benjamin Pech/Christophe Duquenne. The both cast were very interesting, I think I prefer the second but I love also the first cast .
I adore this ballet about feelings, walzes and so on, the first part evocating some XIX century "Salon" and the second more timeless with the pointes. I love the mood of this ballet. But they made a bad choice to mix it with contemporary works as Kelemenis, Brown's Glacial Decoy and Preljocaj. Romantic mood was not at all in the modern mood of this mixed bill. French audience was shared between enthousiasm and boring :shrug: !
