PNB at the Vail Festival
Posted 31 July 2010 - 10:58 PM
The company's journey to Vail is also being chronicled on the PNB blog. Peter Boal wrote a humorous first entry that included anecdotes from their plane trip, and Benjamin Griffiths wrote a few paragraphs later about their arrival. It'll be interesting to see how frequently they update this in the coming days.
Almost all of the company is on tour, except for Jonathan Porretta, Stacy Lowenberg, and Maria Chapman, who are all coming back from injuries. Best wishes go to them for their recoveries!

Could you provide the link to the PNB blog? I don't see anything about Vail on the Director's Blog here: http://www.pnbunleas...ctors_Blog.html

There's a great one of Lucien Postlewaite on point in his sneakers somewhere in the middle of the deck.

At the bottom of the entry there's a beautiful Angela Sterling photo of Sarah Ricard Orza mid-jete in "Serenade". I think we're extremely lucky that she started to dance again.

I had forgotten about the International Evenings, tonight and Saturday. (Scroll.) This year Carla Korbes and Eric Underwood from the Royal Ballet perform (what I assume is) the Pas de Deux from "Agon". I would have loved to have seen that, and would be grateful to experience it vicariously through someone's post about it

In order of appearance:
Seth Orza (no solo)
I poked around YouTube found some more of PNB at Vail:
Mixed class and rehearsal footage. Here, there's a bit more of Seth Orza, along with captioned ID's of Korbes, Sakvannara Sar, Daniil Simkin, Orza, Lindsi Dec, Korbes with Batkhurel Bold (longish passage from the Pas de Deux in Benjamin Millepied's "3 Movements"), Olivier Wevers, Lesley Rausch and Andrew Bartee, and Peter Boal. His foot looks better.
Montage of rehearsal clips from "After the Rain Pas de Deux", with Rachel Foster and Jeffrey Stanton:
Here's the second half of "Cool" from "West Side Story Suite". The dark-haired dancer in the red skirt is Rachel Foster. In the line of five men at about the half minute mark, from left to right: Ezra Thompson (blue with dark neck band), Benjamin Griffiths (peach sleeveless), Barry Kerollis (pink), Josh Spell (pale yellow), Jerome Tisserand (lime), James Moore (shirt with collar). In the background, Kyle Davis (aqua) partners someone I can't recognize because of the lighting, Lucien Postlewaite (Riff) partners Foster, and Andrew Bartee (blue) partners the woman in polka dot dress.
Here Postlewaite has to sing after dancing up a storm:
Three minutes of the "Black Swan Pas de Deux" from the $20.10 performance on 3 August, danced by Carla Korbes and Karel Cruz:
Not PNB, but I couldn't resist:

(not to mention how nice it was to see the trees upstage through the opening in the curtain!)
The Wheeldon clips had my favorite moment in the work (where she is arched back in a bridge on hands and feet, and he slips underneath her, like he's found a little house) so I'm a happy girl.
I think I like this presentation of Robbins' WSSS (without the set and specific costumes). The plain t-shirts for the men simplify the stage picture. (though I do miss that funky vest that Barry Kerollis usually wears)
And the kids were fabulous!
