    2018 Romeo & Juliet

    Stella was spectacular tonight! Her acting was en pointe! is it just me or I thought her chemistry with Paris (Thomas Forster) was much stronger? He might be a better choice for Romeo. Also, his performance has been exceeding Hammoudi. I think Forster deserves a shot as a leading role.

    Just saw Boylston and Halberg. Her Juliet is one of my new favorite in recent years. She complete innoncence ans captures Juliet’s youth so perfectly. She surenders herself to the role. In act 3, she was devastated and confused, physically running into stuff in her desolation. Love them!

    I wish Stella would be partnered by David, as advertised in the posters. Imagine those beautiful dancers together with their long endless lines.

    "Harlequinade" 2018.

    Yes true. However they consider themselves a “touring” company. They spend Fall season at the State Theatre, December doing Nutcracker, spring touring and visiting at least 4 cities and spend the rest of that time rehearsing for the Met.

    "Harlequinade" 2018.

    Back to topic and echoing most comments regarding act 2. I found the children section to be too long and more over I was sitting around many of the parents and family who were wishpering and taking photos during Act 2. With that many children on stage and so many family, it really did feel like a school recital. i will be back tomorrow to see Bella/James who I hope will have a stronger portrayal of the characters.

    that's really short! Which is good after the long La Bayadere nights I have had last week. I am watching two shows this week, excited to get to bed early.

    ABT 2018 Firebird / AFTERITE

    I saw the show last night. Besides the message of the choreography, I found the dancers to be dynamic... I love seeing all the stars on one stage at the same time. IMO, Alessandra Ferri has the most expressive feet... she is so dramatic and beautiful on stage still, I love it.

    4th Giselle of the week and the energy of the audience for Osipova/Halberg was very very special.

    I actually saw Trenary watching the show last night. She was sitting on the side Parterre.

    I truly enjoy all the drama on stage from last night ... I think that is why the company is called Americans Ballet Theatre.

    It was a wonderful debut as Myrta for Ms. Williams. She commanded the stage. I truly felt her presence during her solo performance at the beginning of Act II. It would be so lovely to see her promoted this year.

    Long time reader here, finally join. I feel that I have watched enough ballet to be ablet to contribute to discussion now. Moved to NYC 10 years ago and have been so happy to be able to access so many wonderful shows.

    I just saw my 3rd Giselle this week. Between Hee, Isabella and Stella, I think tonight (Stella) was my favorite performance of the week. She has the most beautiful and classical lines. Her acting and emotions is unparalleled. She may not be perfect all the time, but for me she makes it up with some very strong and genuine moment. in addition, Cory has reached a new level of performance. His acting was believable and the big gasping at the end reminded me of the way Marcelo used to do.

    Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck...........

    it's so beautiful that Robbie has embraced living his own true authentic self.... labels does not matter, he's a beautiful human being and his personal relationships with other human beings is their own private matter.
