What other ballets in the company's repertory would you like to see revived?
There are plenty of other ballets that could be revived other than Symphony in C-plenty Balanchine and Robbins ballets have been shelved for far too many seasons and would make wonderful additions to the active rep. I'd love to see Coppelia, West Side Story Suites and Union Jack again, among others.
One of my first thoughts is Jewels, which hasn't been done in a while. I'd love to see Jenifer Ringer in the Mimi Paul role; she was born to dance it. (I also wanted to see Meunier do the Verdy role, but now . . ..) There are scads of dancers for the McBride role in Rubies: not just Weese, but Somogyi, Bouder, Taylor, and others.
Of the Balanchine ballets, I'd also like to see Brahms-Schoenberg again, and Gounod Symphony.
Does anyone in the Robbins wing of the company still remember An Evening's Waltzes well enough to teach it? That was one of Robbins's better works, if memory serves, though it could be risky for the dancers.
And I'd love to see Bournonville Divertissements again—perhaps rehearsed by Hubbe.
Whatever happened to Martins's plan to revive Summerspace? Was Cunningham unwilling to rehearse it again? Nanatchka?
