    2017-18 season

    anyone has any reviews on elena's debut? I'm sure she was wonderful. I'm wondering if anyone saw her performance... going back to mom2's comment, she was most likely not happy because she had to dance the fairy role right after her massive debut as aurora for which she should have had a good day off.....

    Nutcracker 2017

    I was there last night. I love her radiance in general but I feel as though every time I've seen her perform she has made a technical mistake. She fell out once or twice out of the fouettes but otherwise I believe her debut was respectable.

    2018 Met Season

    I feel like you guys are being a bit harsh. those fouettes look fine to me, and better than the ones she did at another gig. less travelling and more centered.

    Ratmansky Romeo & Juliet: Premiere Wed 22 Nov

    what happened to Obratzova? She has posted multiple entries on instagram and she sounded pretty heartbroken. I'm sad that she was not able to perform on the last day, why didn't they just let her dance with Belyakov?

    Nutcracker Casting

    aww don't say that. What struck me when she came out during the robert fairchild farewell cereomony was how young and tiny she is! I'm not sure where her biggest ambitions lie, but I thinks she's definitely more than capable of giving us more as a dancer too. Though I have to say I get nervous every times she does marzipan because she comes off pointe more often than not, I think there's something besides technical security that she can offer as a dancer. I think her style is very soft and musical and earnest and I enjoy seeing her in slow lyrical ballets

    what is going on with francois alu? not cast in any of these??? that's kind of blasphemy on aurelie dupont's part don't you think?

    NBOC is doing swan lake this season??? I'm really rooting for Elena to finally debut this year!

    ditto!!! I am quite puzzled by the criminal underutilization of Elena Lobsanova. Perhaps to a letter extent but similarly for Jillian Vanstone. And it beats me how Hannah Fischer has earned all her high profile roles while she doesn't quite seem to have the goods to perform them, as evidenced by the poor performances she had of both her Swan Lake outings. Yes, I too agree, the casting within this company has puzzled me greatly and it is evidenced by the lack of interest by the non Canadians in general as well as the exodus I have seen of able dancers leaving NBC....

    2017 Fall Season

    could we please talk about the fall season and swan lake and not restless creature? did anyone go to megan's performance tonight. any updates???

    I'm heartbroken for Elena Lobsanova. I was really looking forward to her being the swan queen, and to me it makes no sense that two soloists would take over the spot instead of her when she is not obviously injured. She must be heartbroken herself.

    Macaulay on NYCB

    I'm so glad to hear. Megan's dancing has been exquisite all this year, and I hope Alistair McCauley acknowledges it this year without disparaging her as he has year after year. FYI, is it just me or I find it extremely unprofessional of him to be following certain dancers on instagram and leaving remarks. I just don't think it's right for him to do that as a jouranlist.

    NYCB winter 2017 promotions

    I feel that there has been significant audience support for Laracey and King, and I love them as well, but to be completely objective, they both seem to lack a wow factor besides their beauty in adagio roles. I think being a principal requires a certain technical versatility and I just don't think they have what it requires technically. Much like what happened with Rebecca Krohn and sometimes what I'm afraid for Lauren Lovette, I think that without having the technical abilities, you run the danger of becoming a bit irrelevant even after becoming a principal, and for me, rooting for King and Laracey to become promoted at this stage may be a hard sell in the end. I very much agree with Ashly Isaacs moving up, as long as she stayed injury free and became more free in her expression.

    2016 Winter Season

    Wow I wanted to like la sylphide so much and being a huge megan fan as you guys know when to see tonight's performance. Well perhaps it was sitting behind a huge tall big headed man who alternated between dozing off to one side then bobbing his head to every beat of the orchestral music but not the best ballet experience I've had. I mean the choreo was beautiful and I appreciated the sweet rapport between megan and Gonzalo but it's suuuccchh a downer of a ballet!!!
