Balanchine Legacy

4 posts in this topic

Sunday's New York Times has an article by Jennifer Homans entitled: "Where is the Heartbeat in the Balanchine Legacy?"

Homans has apparently picked up the torch from Arlene Croce arguing that Martins has trashed the Balanchine Legacy. The only good work, she says, is being done elsewhere like with Farrell's company.

I've been watching the NYCB since the mid-70s and I don't get this. Of course, when new people come into the roles the dances may look different but that's too be expected. And certainly Martins is at fault for freezing out Farrell and the others. But has there really been such a precipitous decline?

Stan, This was indeed an interesting article! What do you think of NYCB as compared to other Balanchine based companies elsewhere in the country?
