A review of American  Ballet Theatre in 'Swan Lake' by Gia Kourlas in  The New York Times.

 

Yet it was a strangely subdued performance. Until Marcelo Gomes burst onto the stage as von Rothbart in the Act III ballroom scene, I had the sinking sensation that I was waiting for the ballet to start. The Act I pas de trois, with Sarah Lane, Yuriko Kajiya and Daniil Simkin, needed more force from the women and, as usual, better partnering from Mr. Simkin. Too often he puts his scissor-split jumps — or anything that bounces — first.

An interview with Christine Rocas.

Along with the Arpino Award came a one-year contract with the Joffrey Ballet. Rocas once again had to make the decision, to stay with Ballet Manila, where she was already getting principal roles or to join the Joffrey Ballet, where she would have to start from scratch.

 

The opportunity was too good to pass up, so in August 2005, the then 19-year-old Rocas packed up her bags and moved to Chicago.

Benoit-Swan Pouffer  will choreograph a Broadway show.

 

Soul Doctor follows the life of "Rock Star" Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, from his Nazi Germany escape to his friendship with jazz singer Nina Simone and his rise to fame as a musician in the 1960s playing with the likes of Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead. Thirty of Carlebach's songs provide the score, with music by the Carlebach himself and lyrics by David Schechter.

A preview of the summer season in dance by Katie Colombus for The Stage.

 

Sat June 22: The Boyz are putting on a fabulous, fandangled dance shenanigan to celebrate the opening of their new studio, office and edit suite, which will be a base for the company in Kingston. Artistic directors Michael Nunn and William Trevitt have cajoled their superstar buddies into action – pieces will be shown by Russell Maliphant, Christopher Wheeldon, Liv Lorent, and Liam Scarlett and there will be a special guest appearance by Royal Ballet principal Marianela Nunez and Thiago Soares. Most majorly, though, The Boyz themselves will return to the stage for the first time since 2009 to perform an excerpt from Critical Mass by Russell Maliphant, their first performance as the Ballet Boyz.

An interview with Adam Bull.

It’s not long before Bull is momentarily stopped in his tracks. ‘‘Good to see you back,’’ whispers a woman passing by, her face flushed with admiration.

 

Bull later unmasks his admirer as Ann Jenner, now a teacher with the ballet company but once a principal ballerina with London’s Royal Ballet and a star of yesteryear.
