Wheeldon Vimeo Channel (ft NYCB dancers)
Posted 18 February 2012 - 05:15 PM
The channel has the very recently performed DGV (with Reichlen, Hall, Bouder, de Luz, Kowroski, Peck (?) of those I easily know--sorry some of NYCB men completely merge into one identity for me as I'm not very familar with them) and Les Carillions (Mearns, Remasar, Whelan, Peck and others), plus Mercurial Manouvers from 2001, Fool's Paradise with Morphoses.
DGV was my first look at Tess Reichlen and wow, she is lovely to watch. Kowroski is also totally in her element--beautiful.
I hope Wheeldon has some more uploads up his sleeve or at least shares this idea with Ratmansky

I can't recognize the dancers, apart from Reichlen and Hall. There were four who took curtain calls, including the second couple from the first movement, the couple from the adagio, and the couple from the last movement. Does anyone know who was who for all four couples?

It is enjoyable, no? I remember liking it less when I saw Corella Ballet, but I think they had some sound problems with the recorded music because there was no sound (or hardly any that I could hear) for the duration of the adagio, so it went painfully slow and awkwardly as people in the audience couldn't figure out if it was intentional or there was a tech problem.
I watched Les Carillions and only made it through a bit, but I will give it another go when I haven't watch DGV directly before it.

PS. When I questioned Christopher Wheeldon regarding the lighting/set of NYCB's version, I was told it was closer to that performed by the Royal Ballet and was also due to NYCB's/RB's respective theaters being larger than the City Center stage Corella Ballet performed on.

PS. I'm not that technically knowledgeable about computers, and personally am not even sure the computer I use has the speed/capacity to even view the videos, so any simple steps/necessary requirements to follow in order to view the videos would be appreciated.
(Once when I did an upgrade of Flash, it prevented me from viewing anything on YT, so I had to remove it--after about 4hrs of troubleshooting and deleting/re-downloading/deleting etc.etc. till I got the right button/program/patch/fix to see things again.)
