  1. I give Ezra a very large portion of the credit for Colorforms.
  2. The calendars are back! They’re in the subscription section.
  3. I really hope they restore the Calendar. It’s the easiest way to keep track of things, particularly if you have a lot of tickets. Also it’s a quicker look at what is running when. Huge omission! Please fix!
  4. Many thanks to Fiddleback for alerting us to this and the other Arizona streams! Wonderful to see, and to learn about the company.
  5. Her mother was an English teacher but then stayed home to raise children. Her instagram is in fluent English. I have wondered if her English fluency is partly responsible for her freuquent pairing with Parish.
  6. I don’t think so. It’s a pretty obvious omission given that it’s a premiere of a ballet. And she knows and has worked with the choreographer. Strikes me as another one of her weird, indirectly hostile posts. I love her dancing but I’m getting turned off to her.
  7. Thanks for posting, California.
  8. It was a treat to watch Boris Akimov. Fabulous. I didn’t see Maria Allash.
  9. My comment had nothing to do with my or anyone else’s viewing pleasure. It was a point made about the way Lane may POSSIBLY be managing her career.
  10. There are many kinds of jobs, many kinds of dangers, many kinds of intimacy, and many kinds of oppression. Some of them are far worse than ballet. We don’t know the facts here. Lane has a history of being impolitic. Just possibly (quoting myself) this was another instance. Maybe not.
  11. Just possibly someone in Lane’s position with the company should have done whatever it took to keep her partnership with Cornejo alive. There is nothing that suggests he is such an ogre that it would have entailed something truly odious. I too think Lane is one of the best female dancers on the ABT roster and we don’t know the facts but you have to wonder. Most people put up with a lot in their jobs.
  12. Practice waa a flippant and unfortunate choice of words, reflecting perhaps my skepticism and frustration with the company — and how far from performance ready I found the 2017 foray into Balanchine. But I will be seeing both Balanchine ballets. I look forward to Cornejo’s Apollo and I hope Theme and Variations is better than the Balanchine performances I saw two years ago.
