  1. Felt the same! I usually love Reichlen but I literally could not stop watching Mearns.
  2. Just watched the modern innovation program, and man do I really need to see all of Kammermusik. Sara Mearns blew me away. I don’t know how I’ve never seen that ballet but I can’t wait to someday see the whole thing in person.
  3. Excited for the promotions, as I like all of those dancers. I’m not going to stress over Lane until it’s confirmed that she is leaving, or has left. Unless I’m missing something, I see nothing on her social media accounts that indicate she has left.
  4. I’m deeply disappointed in ABT. They used to be my favorite ballet company. Now, I’d much rather spend my donation dollars at NYCB. They are doing severe damage to their company by not having a digital presence. I hope they recover but I’m not sure how much time and money I’ll be spending there when this is over.
  5. Went to the premiere as I was already out in LA for a work trip. I loved it. Will write more tomorrow.
  6. I’ll be interested to see what everyone else thinks about Hurlin’s Myrtha in the spring. The only disappointment from yesterday was the corps Willis. They were a tad off, especially the hopping arabesques. I could see heads bobbling at different speeds. Not a horrible performance, just a bit off.
  7. I thoroughly enjoyed Ahn and Brandt today (especially Act 2) but the star of the show was Catherine Hurlin. WOW, she was a phenomenal Myrtha. Her jumps were so light and airy, she flew across the stage. She was impressively menacing. Her portrayal had nuance, honestly probably the best Myrtha I’ve seen from ABT.
  8. I have tickets for Sunday. Excited to see Skylar’s debut.
  9. I’m also going on Saturday. I’ve seen Teuscher as O/O but it will be my first time seeing Bell as Siegfried.
  10. Not feeling very talkative, but I agree they were fantastic. I was very impressed with the whole company, but especially Nathalia Arja. She was explosive in Walspurgisnacht.
  11. Super happy for Kathryn Morgan
  12. I find it a bit irritating to see Shyklarov is performing with Staatsballet in Diamonds with Somova after pulling out of KC. Guess he felt he had better things to do.
  13. Really disappointed in the casting changes. Need to add a performance with Khoreva now.
  14. I love Alexandra Hughes, she is one of my favorite dancers at PAB. Though I will admit that I favor her in the Balanchine rep (what little is left at PAB), and have no clue what kind of Giselle she would be.
  15. Excited about this season, I’m going to try to see them all. Especially happy to get to see the Ratmansky R&J again. Does Obratzsova ever tour? I know she has littles, but would love to see her Juliet.
