Gone with the Wind as a ballet

I used to picture Susan Jaffe as Scarlett but Lillian, you are correct, Miranda Weese is Scarlett

Re casting, I'm going to put up another thread. It's time for a new game

I don't see how AB CAN'T be setting itself up for a fall with something like GWTW, where the expectations are bound to be impossibly high. On the other hand, AB's productions generally get very favorable local press (from the reviews, you would have thought Pink's "Dracula" was the next "Swan Lake") and the ballet gets a lot of corporate support.
Oh, well, I guess we shall see. I'm not buying my plane ticket for that 2003 premiere just yet.

It's not a problem at all to show Civil War, Slavery, Racial Stereotipes or even your Hello in ballet.
I think, if the choreographer will chose Tara as the main character of this particular performance, he/she is going to win. Don't you see even in the title "Gone with the wind" all white, black, purple with yellow dots will be swept away and just the Earth will be the same, still feeding and burying us.
