Diamond Project makes Top Ten List!

3 posts in this topic

With all the barbs and brickbats hurled at NYCB's Diamond Project this past year, I found it interesting (and somewhat gratifying) that in the NY Times, Jack Anderson chose it as one of the year's top 10 Moments.

"It has produced duds in some of the new ballets it has commissioned over the years. Fortunately, other creations have made the project shine. This spring's gems included Christopher Wheeldon's ingeniously patterned 'Morphoses' and Stephen Baynes's meditative 'Twilight Courante.'"

In addition, Anna Kisselgoff, in choosing NYCB as one of her 10 Moments, said "'Morphoses' and Mauro Bigonzetti's clever and fragmented 'Vespro' were highlights of the company's Diamond Project in the spring.'"

My own opinion is that however disappointing a few ballets are, there's a welcome air of excitement and expectation during Diamond Project seasons, and the overall batting average is not bad at all.

On the other hand, I would put it on a Letterman Top Ten list for Top Ten Reasons to Take your Dog on a VERY Long Walk.
