... a Robert Greskovic article in the print and online subscriber versions of today's Wall Street Journal. Greskovic takes Stuart Capps ("a young and undistinguished corps de ballet dancer" -- ouch!) to task for coarsening Mother Ginger in the Nutcracker. He trashes Peter Martins' "Burleske" and Eliot Feld's "Organon" and wonders about "possible references to genital organs" in the latter. He likes Christopher Wheeldon's "Polyphonia," thinks its references to masters "come out fresh-faced," and praises the dancers in it. If the light of such dancing shone more often at NYCB, he says, "the result would be a new dawn rising over" -- I like this coming image -- "a confounding twilight."
