  1. 2017 Fall Season

    So happy for Zach!
  2. 2017 Fall Season

    I don't like this production of SL at all, but I am looking forward to Fairchild and Peck. I wish we we had more Balanchine this fall. I feel like I'm in a Balanchine drought, especially after last Spring's "Here/Now Festival".

    The New York Times article also has additional videos. I hope this review won't affect the 2nd performances of both Megan and Tiler. Edit: Also, I just saw pictures of the costumes for the new Justin Peck ballet. Odd-looking and seems like it would be distracting from the dancing.

    Per Tiler's instagram, there were (at least) seven curtain calls. I'm sad I missed that evening.

    I can't wait to read your review of Tiler's performance.
  6. 2017 Fall Season

    I saw Mearns, Reichlen, and Bouder this weekend. I was disappointed in Mearns and Reichlen. I wish Mearns' arms were more balletic, but they just seemed way too frantic. It also seemed like she was bobbing her head up and down a lot. Reichlen had a lot of technical mishaps as the posts above mention. Bouder turned in the best perforrmance of the three that I saw. Her movements were very smooth and was more in line with what I'm used to seeing in Swan Lake. Looking forward to Hyltin, Fairchild and Peck next week. Also, this is my first time seeing Martin's SL. That production needs a redesign. The colors in Act I clash. I hate the costumes for the men in Act I (why are there holes?!). The village looks like someone set fire to it.
  7. Interview with Heather Watts

    I really enjoyed this episode. I wis we had more interviews with the dancers who have worked directly with Balanchine.

    I liked the article, but it does incorrectly state that Megan received a Tony nomination for it.

    I'll drink to that!

    He's so beautiful in that picture it hurts.

    I was in denial and holding out hope that he would return. Ironically, it was his performance in American in Paris that got me into the ballet in the first place. I hope there's another promotion on the horizon. I'm rooting for Catazaro.

    Robert Fairchild is leaving the company, according to the NYCB instagram.
  13. 2017 Fall Season

    Fairchild used to be cast in Swan Lake opposite Hyltin. I hope he doesn't leave the company because of his split with Peck. I would love to see him do Apollo.

    This is my first time seeing NYCB's full length Swan Lake. I'm most looking forward to Teresa Reichlen and Tiler Peck!

    That's unfortunate
