  1. Am I the only one that thought she actually gave a decent performance in swan lake? I saw her on saturday evening and I actually thought she was much better than during her debut in 2017 and gave a convincing performance especially as odette. She even overcame an underrotation during a very early part of her 32 fouettes and never felt off pointe and kept turning until the very end, what nerves of steel. I would like to say even with or without Sterling and Tiler being not 100%, her casting has been well deserved.
  2. Any review on Megan’s performance last night?
  3. 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.....
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. she got to dance 24th but lost her spot on 26th on sunday...what happened? Krysanova gets to go again?
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. NBOC is doing swan lake this season??? I'm really rooting for Elena to finally debut this year!
  11. 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....
  12. 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???
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!!!
  17. I am glad you guys are enjoying Megan's performance too! Coz lately I've been noticing that she puts her heart out there at every performance. Don't think it's any coaching from tiler--megan is an artist made of her own mold and know how to make artistic decisions of her own!
  18. Abatt I disagree with you. I felt that Megan was doing every movement with ease and I think it's just a difference in interpretation in Style. I feel as though your one sided admiration of Tiler tends to negatively affect your interpretation of other artists' performances. Tiler is talented for sure, but her overt, extroverted sense of musicality does not have to be THE ONLY way for everyone I feel…..
  19. Hmmm I wonder why that was? Did megan do t and v for Saturday matinee as scheduled? Could someone confirm?
  20. Yes! I think Gordon is the most deserving! I'm not sure how I feel about Ashley hod, she's a tall leggy girl but seemed always just a bit tad behind during allegro steps of any sequence I've seen her do. I think she's a bit overhyped in general.....
  21. I think megan fairchild will debut on la sylphide according to her podcast on balancing pointe
  22. Hi, new to the forum here, but have been following it for some time...I agree that it really excites me when dancers go out of their comfort zone. I was particularly excited that megan fairchild was going to debut in justin peck's New work but realized she was replaced by Tiler peck for the originally scheduled 2/6 debut....but I can understand because she has a very busy schedule this season ....I'm really excited to see her in all the other featured dances this season! I know she suffers a bit because her rep is very similar to Tiler peck and Ashley bouder's and because of that she is often overshadowed but I really appreciate Megan's honest, and open style and I think her talent adds a lot to the company. I just wanted to give her a shoutout because I think her modesty sometimes gets in the way of her shining as brightly as the others....
