  1. Nutcracker 2017

    Sad not to see a repeat of Isabella LaFreniere’s Dewdrop. I haven’t attended any of the Nutcrackers this season. I don’t think she’s been been cast in any other featured role either. For those that have gone, was she in the corps? I hope she’s not injured.

    http://www.dancemagazine.com/wilhelmina-frankfurt-peter-martins-investigation-2516966253.html the article also links to another article about an encounter with Frankfurt and Balanchine.
  3. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    You’re not alone in thinking that. I didn’t see her dancing much in the past two seasons. I was wondering if she might retire relatively early, like Krohn or Somogyi. I’m interested in seeing her dance more (in Balanchine ballets, specifically), but I don’t know if that will happen even with Jon Stafford at the helm. I loved her in the weird Russian Dance in the Martins Swan Lake that looked vaguely Arabian.

    I wonder if that's why there are three other people on the team.
  5. Veronika Part leaving ABT

    She is such a gorgeous dancer. What a loss to ABT. It's fascinating how relevant the lyrics of the song are to Veronika's own journey.

    From the Conversations on Dance Podcast, my impression was that Watts and Woetzel took Tiler Peck under their wing quite early on. In another interview, Damian said he first noticed her in the corps of Opus Jazz, but I can’t remember the source of where he said this.

    His YouTube channel is an incredible treasure trove.

    I find that Clifford has a tendency to make a lot of things about himself. Whether talking about working with Balanchine, his dancers in Los Angeles Ballet, or the models he's discovered, he usually adds a dash of of "look at me, look at me".
  9. 2018 Met Season

    I don’t understand why Copeland is getting two O/Os. Does ABT really have that much trouble selling Swan Lake tickets?
  10. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I wonder if it would be better to split up the administrative and artistic responsibilities of the AD so the burden isn’t all on one person. Obviously, I don’t know if it’s even possible to disentangle the AD’s responsibilities neatly.

    This is my nightmare.

    Doesn’t she still teach at SAB? She probably reports to Mazzo who then reports to Martins. I’m suppose this is Ok?

    Jon Stafford Jock Soto edit: for AD/ballet master in chief. if it’s not gonna be Farrell, I would prefer someone who likes to teach. Also, if Martins were to depart, I wonder if this would allow City Ballet to at least mend some old fences and lead to some Balanchine ballets returning to the rep.

    I was also planning on going, but got sticker shock. I mean, $100 for the 4th ring?!
  15. Nutcracker Casting

    Has anyone seen Kikta’s Dewdrop?
