I can't see much of the dancing due to those awful striped pyjamas
Those PJs are one of my favorite things in the ballet. Touch those, and I'll have to...............

I find it VERY depressing that the marvelous (in every way) Imler is apparently not going to be given the principal Barocco role.
Obviously Boal subscribes to the long/lean/Farrell-archetype view of casting this part, which is a pity because
Marie-Jeanne, who of course created the ballerina role, was not tall. She also had astounding feet, a huge jump, and tremendous strength.
The part was also far, far jazzier and more interesting then, according to virtually every account of the ballet through the years.
Not tall, great feet, great jump, jazzy, and incredibly strong sounds more like Imler than just about any other dancer in PNB or out of it.

sandik, I'm scandalized at such remarks--and here I was innocently enjoying the bright red socks and pointe shoes.
Oh, those too!

Adams also did the first ballerina role, though not with LeClercq. The clip of the two of them on the Balanchine documentary thing is almost indescribable. the unison and the intent.

It opens with Joshua Grant (bandana) and William Lin-Yee (headband). Then Elizabeth Murphy (dark blue leotard) dances with Karel Cruz (blue hoodie). They are joined by Lindsi Dec (turquoise leotard) and Laura Gilbreath (white leotard). The three women in the latter 2/3 of the video are, l-r, Dec, Gilbreath, and Murphy.

I can only go one weekend. As far as I can tell, all 3 casts perform the 3 performances on the 1st weekend, and all casts perform the 4 performances on the 2nd weekend (except for some very minor switches -- such as Kitchens for Gilbreath for a single performance).
Am I missing anything? I hope not because if I have this right, I can see all 3 casts in one weekend (looks like I'll be going the 1st weekend).
