But even from the monitor, I could hear the fine balance of the orchestra and see a general sluggishness in the dancers' movement. Small fidgets, which might have negligible effect in other ballets, were disruptive. And the ensemble dancers took turns being out of sync.
Lambarena started out as minor fun, offered a terrific solo for Jermel Johnson (whose torso seemed to move in six directions at once) and then ran out of ideas. Great costumes for the ladies here!
As It's Going got a good boost from the Shostakovich score, but I can't recall a single enduring image.

Yes! Fairly certain that's the one. But the program listed her as a Russian girl for opening night's Serenade...Wouldn't be the first time that a program didn't list actual corps dancers
in various ballets...
Anyway, a nice headshot... If there was a short video too...

Abi was in the Russian corps. She is the red head.
There were two redheads; one taller, one shorter. Also a very brightly blonde girl. Don't recall the fourth girl.
So if Abi is a redhead, then the girl in the corps whom I so admired was someone else.

The second violin in the Saturday matinee performance was Brook Moore, formerly of San Francisco Ballet.
Thanks for clarifying, she was wonderful!
