  1. Jorge Donn danced Bugaku during his short sojourn with NYCB. With Farrell, shortly after her return.
  2. Thanks fo this. I guess I remember Bart and Sally so well because they were so very funny. And did it for years. No one else, IMO, has ever lived up to their performances.
  3. I remember seeing Baryshnikov do the role, with McBride I think, but weren't Sarah Leland and Bart Cook the creators of the roles? And, yes, they were hilarious. Even the 9th or 10th time.
  4. Martine's Giselle also crossed my mind when reading these later posts. Like Murphy, Martine had some difficulty persuading that she might be in fragile health. Nevertheless I wouldn't have missed her Giselle for the world. So beautifully danced; so exquisitely musical; so steeped in the style. Gorgeous.
  5. I seem to remember Forster doing Lilac Garden yonks ago. At City Center. He was fairly new to the company at the time.
  6. Princes all. Peter was also a great James, which he did at the Met when the Danes guested. Also a dazzling Albrecht in a Giselle he did in Toronto with Makarova. Amazing entrechats. This was during Erik Bruhn's tenure at National Ballet of Canada.
  7. Martins was a magnificent dancer, wonderful in a wide variety of roles including, much to my surprise, the Rhumba Boy in On the Town. Very amusing. Nicolaj Hubbe was also wonderful in T&V, after a disastrous first performance. As was Ib Andersen. Great Danish training?
  8. Ah Krammy! A very funny man. Dancing with the angels.
  9. Anyone interested in donating to the Mel A Tomlinson Scholarship for Dancers at North Carolina School of the Arts can use this link: https://uncsa.thankyou4caring.org/pages/donate?_ga=2.87030111.639257285.1549908004-478290361.1534445501). In the Designation box, choose other, then write in Mel Tomlinson scholarship.
  10. This is so sad. Mel was one of the most charming individuals I ever met. Sparkling, interested in people, alive. A great smile. Gone too soon.
  11. His MyLife page gives his age as 42. How old need one be before ageing out of "Junior" this and "Young" that?
  12. If I'm remembering correctly the Taylor company announced it about a year ago. They didn't make a significant point of it, especially considering there would be a year and a half gap between seasons. But apparently the weather had made a huge difference in their box office between the time they started using the "State" theater and 2017. There had been a lot of snow and transportation difficulties and apparently a lot of their audience was of the walk-up persuasion.
  13. The Taylor company has canceled its Spring season and switched to the Fall due to the recent increase in inclement weather with its consequent negative impact on the box office. They will now be performing : "The 2019 Paul Taylor American Modern Dance season at Lincoln Center will take place in the Fall of 2019: October 30 - November 17. " quoted from the Taylor website.
  14. I wonder if ABT will do Sunday matinées. Dark Mondays. Might be a good thing box office-wise.
