Following the phenomenal success of Kings of Dance, The Center presents another world premiere dance co-production with Ardani Artists showcasing an international dance superstar. Diana Vishneva is one of the world’s most glamorous and extraordinary dancers, worthy of this tribute. ... The prima ballerina will perform a program of new ballets created for her by three distinct choreographers: Alexei Ratmansky, Moses Pendleton and Édouard Lock. Joining her for this world premiere are the orchestra and corps de ballet of the National Ballet of the Ukraine.
Given Mr. Ratmansky's 3-for-3 success rate in NYC, and the thought of Diana dancing a la Pilobolus, this could become quite a serious artistic event. City Center makes no mention of hosting the tour in New York, yet why else would they mention it?
