Hamburg Ballet received help from the Paris Opera Ballet when their costumes for an engagement in Chicago were delayed in transit:




A freight ship carrying Hamburg's original costumes was delayed because of a massive storm that derailed the Chicago shipment date, postponing delivery indefinitely and threatening next week's much-anticipated presentation of the Hamburg Ballet's iconic Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler-the only two performances of John Neumeier's Third Symphony during Hamburg's 2014 North American tour, specially chosen following the company's Harris Theater debut last season.

A review of New York City Ballet by Michael Popkin for danceviewtimes.


Kowroski and Angle’s “Diamonds” succeeded for some of the same reasons.  But the context was different:  instead of Veyette and Hyltin’s mutual independence and display of jazzy 1960’s cool, Kowroski and Angle turned the ballet’s opening adagio into a drama of feminine vulnerability and ardent male strength, playing out beneath the grandeur of a formal court ritual and in opposition to its constraint.
