  1. I agree completely. I watched it several times. She was phenomenal both technically and expressively.
  2. Wonderful. I watched it earlier and just watched again. Has NYCB ever revived it after Balanchine's death?
  3. Agree that Thank You NY has actual dancing, more movement in space. It seems trivial but as soon as I saw Stafford, I thought "lose that mustache". He looks completely different.
  4. I enjoyed everyone in this same interview very much, and Turazashvili's English was so impressive! Tereshkina is one of my favorite Mariinsky dancers, and it was also easy to see her in Fateyev's class.
  5. I agree ... but also ... canbelto said: Think the "new works" in recent years that will be a permanent part of the rep: Alexei Ratmansky's Russian Seasons, Namouna, Concerto DSCH, Pictures at an Exhibition Justin Peck's In Creases, Times Are Racing, Rodeo, Belles Lettres, Pulcinella Variations Wheeldon's After the Rain, This Bitter Earth, Carousel, DGV Forsythe's Herman Schmermann Kyle Abraham's Runaway Yes to all.
  6. Not every work by a great painter was a great painting. Vipa said: Maybe dance audiences will be eager to see NYCB do a lot of new works when they return to the stage after a year and a half, but I'll be eager to be re-immersed in the Balanchine rep. I'm all in favor of giving opportunities to new choreographers, but great art is hard to come by, and I fear the emphasis on turning the page could mean ignoring the fabulous NYCB heritage. I'm very eager to see Balanchine next year and always. Compared to the programs of 20 or even 10 years ago, we seem to see less of Balanchine and
  7. I've seen the McBride/Baryshnikov on YouTube. I don't know if it's still there.
  8. Agree. i just love it and can't wait to see it again in person. Also: P.S. I hate it when dancers pronounce "pas de deux" as "pas de duh." Why do they do it? It seems almost every NYCB dancer says this!
  9. balletforme said: NYCB ballet dancers are collecting unemployment (those who can.) Not foreign dancers. That's verified through numerous Instgram posts. They are not being offered any classes through the company. Th What a sad company. They have the HIGHEST budget of ANY ballet company in the US (89 Million in 2018) and yet companies with less money are paying their dancers, using relief funds to give them classes, performing in small works and chamber pieces (SFB, MCB, PNB). I don't think this is completely correct. I recall reading in March, when the spring
  10. It was a wonderful program. I recall seeing it when it was first televised. I loved Farrell and Andersen and saw them dance several times in the 1980s. It's certainly worth repeated viewings.
  11. I agree, but also couldn't NYCB have made the announcement on their site? It's unclear which organization decided to cancel.
  12. I started searching the ABT 1978 performance on Youtube on my TV at 7:45. No go, I then went to ABT.org and the LC site. What a mystery, it's unfindable! I finally was given a link courtesy of another ballet lover's site that required you to put your email address in and I watched it on computer Does ABT/Lincoln Center really think people are going to copy it? Films of a film, come on, we can see that on Youtube now. We can see the T&V there now. We can see better versions of Les Sylphides by ABT too. I loved T&V especially. What a masterpiece and what a beautiful defi
  13. The Doubrovska Remembered DVD is just wonderful. I watch it often. I love the way she speaks so expressively, and how she moves when teaching. What a thrill it would be to see a film of her actually dancing!
  14. BalanchineFan said: I was surprised they didn't have toasts from more of the past generations of ABT stars. Either they weren't invited to toast, or they were and declined.
