I wish I could see this program. I loved Caniparoli's "The Bridge," and I thought that most of "The Seasons" was terrific. I know it went east after being performed at PNB -- maybe Louisville? -- but it's been removed from PNB's active rep list, which was very disappointing.

SATURDAY, MARCH 1—2PM

TEARS

Choreographer: Val Caniparoli
Composer: Steve Reich
Conductor: Martin West

Couple 1: Shannon Rugani, Ruben Martin Cintas
Couple 2: Julia Rowe, Shane Wuerthner
Couple 3: Isabella DeVivo, Steven Morse

Although I’m far from an expert on the subject, I’ve always liked what minimalist music I’ve heard. If you let yourself sink into it without distractions there are subtle rhythms, delicate shifts in the sound that can be very beautiful. I don’t think Caniparoli made much use of those subtleties, and his choreography (but not the music) quickly became a little monotonous. Not a good sign when the choreography becomes a distraction. Good performances from the second cast.

FROM FOREIGN LANDS

Choreographer: Alexei Ratmansky
Composer: Moritz Moszkowski
Conductor: Martin West

Russian: Julia Rowe, Jaime Garcia Castilla
Frances Chung, Vitor Luiz
Italian: Esteban Hernandez, Sarah Van Patten, Elizabeth Powell, Shannon Rugani
German: Simone Messmer, Sean Orza*, Luke Willis, Steven Morse
Spanish: Frances Chung, Esteban Hernandez, Sarah Van Patten, Vitor Luiz
Polish:Simone Messmer, Julia Rowe, Shannon Rugani, Elizabeth Powell
Jaime Garcia Castilla, Sean Orza, Luke Willis, Steven Morse

Silly fun. Ratmansky keeps it mostly light hearted, with Simone Messmer bringing lush beauty to ‘German’, and Esteban Hernandez cheerfully flinging himself through ‘Italian’.

Skipped this one. It was interesting to see once, but I don’t feel any compelling need to see it again. Giselle it’s not.
