What Would *You* Dance?
Posted 16 June 2001 - 04:53 AM
Since we dancers often have dreams of being Aurora, Kitri, Odette, Juliet, etcetera, do non-dancers (namely critics) ever wish they were the ones dancing up at the Met.? If so -
What ballet? (Choreography, music, [certain arrangement], era [Romantic, classical]).
Where? (City Theatre, overseas, yadda yadda)
If it's a pas de deux, with whom? (Okay, in an idealistic world, I'd partner the most good-looking guy. But then, I'm not answering this.)
Any other nuances you think that you would add/take from the role, upon viewing others' performances.
I might just have inspired a few brains to go put on pointe shoes. ;)

I've also not had a longing to inhabit any of the roles......
however,wanting to wear some of the costumes is, indeed, another matter!
This does not, I am aware, answer your question. One role I know that I would never, ever, *ever,* be tempermentally able to undertake is Giselle.

2) The lead in Balanchine's 'Ballo della Regina', even thought all that intricate pointe work would kill my feet.
3) The lead in Petit's 'Proust Remembered'
4) Robbins' 'Afternoon of a Faun' & 'Other Dances'
5) The lead in Ashton's 'Cinderella' with Dowell as my Prince.
