Revivals -- Balanchine works revived by Balanchine ballerinas
Posted 25 June 2002 - 12:23 PM
Back to City Ballet's rep, here's a suggestion that's bound to be popular: invite every living Balanchine ballerina to come in and stage, or at least help coach, a ballet in which she created or embodied a role. A sort of living bouquet for Mr. B.

Who has Peter's ear? Who would he listen to?

Kent coaching La Sonnambula.
How about letting Suki Schorer do something with the company? Her stagings for the school are so full of musical detail.
If magic were possible, to see how Leclercq would have coached.

I'd love to see Suzanne stage Metastaseis and Pithoprakta. I saw this only once, 34 years ago, and have been waiting ever since to see it again.

I long to see Liebeslieder Waltzer staged by Verdy and/or Farrell.
I can dream, can't I?

Think about this for a minute.
Can you believe it?
At this point, I can.........

On another thread, Leigh, you explained how the ballet company hierarchy works... So is it really only up to the Ballet Master in Chief how to handle the upcoming season? Are prayer and supplication the only route? Does the Board of Directors have any serious input and/or control?

Martins is very skilled at saying all the right things (ie "This is Balanchine's House, blah, blah, blah"), but he was never a believer--he simply wanted the director's chair. If Balanchine ever mistreated him, he has avenged himself well, and perhaps there is some of that in commissioning Eifman. I can't explain inviting that bombast in any other way. And when he does come, Martins will say, " here is a choreographer from Balanchine's native city. Like Balanchine he is an innovator; how else can we honor a great choreographer but with a new ballet, blah, blah, blah". Kisselgoff will clap like a happy little seal over at the Times.
It's too depressing.

So I'd be surprised if such a statement would have passed such dragons without back up
