The State Ballet of Georgia is reviewed by Sarah Kaufman for the Washington Post:

As Nina Ananiashvili, in a flame-red catsuit and toe shoes to match, slithered across the stage like an elegant, loopy vixen in “Dreams About Japan” at Lisner Auditorium on Sunday night, she seemed light-years away from when we last saw her in Washington. Then, in 2009, she was a majestic star, one of the great classical ballerinas of the age, performing her last “Swan Lake” at the Kennedy Center with American Ballet Theatre.

Brian Seibert reviews the State Ballet of Georgia for the New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.c...eview.html?_r=1

The State Ballet of Georgia looks improved all around since its last New York appearance in 2008. Perhaps it was the choice of roles, but Ms. Ananiashvili, famous for her naturalness, seemed to have grown a little mannered, though her technique remained solid. Her rendition of the “Dying Swan,” and its automatic encore, were rituals between her and ecstatically adoring fans, as were the many bows at the evening’s close. Ms. Ananiashvili took in the adoration like air, her pride more than personal as she carried the Georgian flag. She bears the standard of her small nation well.

Clement Crisp reviews the Scottish Ballet:

About the preceding Kings 2 Ends, made by Jorma Elo, a Finnish choreographer now resident in Boston, I can but report that it forcibly marries scores by Steve Reich and Mozart, that its manner is frenetic, weirdly reliant on physical tics as an aspect of choreography, and is damnable in every respect. It makes its cast look foolish, and I think it without a single redeeming feature. I care not one damn what dancing does to the works of Steve Reich, which invite abrasions, but poor Mozart!

Miami City Ballet has a new executive director:

http://www.palmbeach...ve-1954054.html

Miami City Ballet is bringing in a big-gun fundraiser to head its operations. Nicholas Goldsborough has been named executive director of the 26-year-old Miami Beach-based company, which numbers the Kravis Center among its performing bases. Goldsborough will start work Nov. 14.

He replaces Pamela Gardiner, who has served in that position since 1988. Gardiner, who also is the ballet’s in-house lawyer, will continue that part of her job with the title of executive vice president of artistic affairs.
