Fall Digital Season in New York City Ballet Posted October 11, 2020 7 hours ago, cobweb said: Thanks for the reminder about this program, canbelto. I forgot they were doing some as matinees. I thought Megan Fairchild was the best program host we've yet seen. She is charming and at ease. And strangely, she looks more mature and elegant than she often does on the stage. As many times as I've seen her perform, I had no idea her eyes were so enormous and liquid! I remember when she came out onstage for her brother's farewell, very pregnant, in very high heels and a simple but sophisticated dress, and I was surprised by her mature persona. Onstage she often comes across as young and cutesy, with a small smile (although of course, extremely accomplished and professional). I hope she can work some of that sophistication and beauty into her performing, and meanwhile, please let's see her in more "digital hosting" duties! I thought Megan Fairchild did a wonderful job hosting as well, both educational and fun. Based on her eye movements during the intros, I think she was using a teleprompter, probably on a tablet. I noticed because I use a teleprompter app when I make speaking videos as well, and I've had to learn to make the eye movement not too obvious and distracting. I know for myself, I'm much more relaxed having that little "help" when I'm recording myself (as well as much less likely to forget something I wanted to say, LOL!), so perhaps that's something that more of the hosts may want to consider in the future.
