I just received OBT's Nutcracker brochure, which features a nearly full side photo of Artur Sultanov and Gavin Larsen, in what I think is the moment at the very end of the Act II pas de deux just after he does the downstage right promenades and lets go of her hand, leaving her balancing in arabesque. Larsen is the poster child for a dead-on balance.
There are four smaller photos, one of Karl Vakili in Chinese -- sniff, he retired at the end of last season, one of Spanish, one of an angel, and the last a tableu with Dewdrop and the Flowers. (I can't tell if that's Tracy Taylor and Matthew Boies in Spanish. If so, sniff, sniff, they retired at the end of last season, too.)
