  1. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    In case you haven't heard the report filed by Jeff Lunden on NPR's All Things Considered today in which he speaks with Wilhelmina Frankfurt, Wendy Whelan, and Kelly Cass Boal, here's the link.
  2. Has this music ever been used for ballet, either the entire suite (40 mins) or selected movements? The Gadfly story may not be the best for a ballet but the music -- even I could choreograph to it.
  3. 2017 Fall Season

    I saw the program last night. I recommend sitting as far back as possible for the last ballet. The recorded music will knock you out of your seat. And no, it's not worth $185.
  4. Roster in Review - 2017

    Which explains the cartwheels and the music in the last class Craig Salstein taught at ABT (see Instagram video posted in this thread on Aug. 5) ;)
  5. Comparing the roster in tonight's program to one from June 12, it appears that four of the five apprentices got corps contracts since the 12th. Congrats to Carlos Gonzalez, Annabel Katsnelson, Xuekan Lu, and Gabrielle Perkins. Kiely Groenewegen is still listed as an apprentice.
  6. In her review of the workshop gala performance, Marina Harss names the new apprentices: "After the show, eight new apprentices were named: Gabriella Domini, Nieve Corrigan, Mary Thomas MacKinnon, India Bradley, Andres Zuniga, Gilbert Bolden, Darius Black and Roman Mejia. Congratulations to all." http://dancetabs.com/2017/06/school-of-american-ballet-workshop-performance-new-york/
  7. David Hallberg

    Here's an update on his comeback: http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/dance/david-hallberg-coppelia-comeback-after-agonising-layoff-20161207-gt63ot.html?mc_cid=73f7555480&mc_eid=78e9fc27f6
  8. City Ballet 2016-2017 Season

    @cobweb - what is Society NYCB? Is that the old 4th Ring Society?
  9. NYCB Spring 2016 Spring Season

    New York Times article about Maria Kowroski's return to dancing: http://nyti.ms/27IkIar
  10. Taylor Stanley promoted to principal

    Tuesday night he replaced Gonzalo Garcia in Hallelujah Junction and then danced the Allegro (first) movement of Western Symphony. Bravo, Taylor!
  11. NYCB Spring 2016 Spring Season

    The andante (second) movement of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2 always makes me a bit weepy but tonight, watching Sara Mearns and Tyler Angle dance Ratmansky's choreography to it for Concerto DSCH, was a two hankie performance. Sara looked as though she could float away on some of those lifts. Thank heavens there was one more movement after the andante to regain my composure before the lights came up.
  12. Nutcracker week 1 casting is up

    Allen Peiffer is listed as a guest artist? And he is no longer on the roster on City Ballet's web site? Did he retire from the company?
  13. NYCB at Saratoga 2015

    Just tweeted by NYCBallet: SPAC season dedicated to Albert Evans. https://twitter.com/nycballet/status/618572630203977730
  14. Albert Evans, RIP

    The New York Times just posted an obituary. It's just horribly sad.
