    I really enjoyed Pereira in Symphony in 3 movements. I thought she was good in Symphony in C as well, but she was outshone by the other ballerinas, Woodward in particular. She does look extremely young- I was surprised at how long she’s been in the company.

    New York City Ballet Fall Season

    I think Barber violin concerto is being done on the spring. I’ve heard good things about that one though so far the only Martins I’ve liked is Fearful Symmetries.

    Gordon’s a likely candidate. Other Danchig Waring, who else has done the role?

    Wow, didn’t recognize Garcia at all. I thought his hair was darker.

    New York City Ballet Fall Season

    The farewell performance was wonderful. I’ve only been in NYC for two seasons but De Luz quickly became one of my favorites. I didn’t particularly care for Todos Buenos Aires as a ballet. It was however well done and everyone on stage was dancing with pure emotion. It was a good closer for the day. Peter Martins attended with Amar Ramasar and Alexa Maxwell, and I thought he’d appear on stage at the end but he did not. I also didn’t see Justin Peck either (he didn’t come on with the rest of the artistic team). Other than them and Fairchild I didn’t recognize anyone other than the current dancers on stage. Who was the person with the Spanish flag, and who was the woman in green who kissed him?

    Congratulations to all. I would have thought that Silas Farley or Preston Chamblee would get promoted though. And Indiana Woodward is basically being treated as if she were a principal already.

    New series of 10 videos where Clifford explains the Los Angeles Ballet fiasco. In short: he was lied to, he wasn’t responsible for the finances, and this would not happen at City Ballet if he was AD because it has wonderful management. In addition to being responsible for the careers of Damien Woetzel and Darci Kistler he also created Lorena Feijoo and Benjamin Pierce of SF Ballet.

    It’s in response to a Macaulay question about diversity in ballet.

    He just posted a picture of him with Eartha Kitt to show how totally colorblind he is (I don’t know how to post Instagram posts on here).

    Clifford seems to really think of himself as a legitimate contender

    New York City Ballet Fall Season

    Kretzschmar replaced LaFreniere in Rubies tonight. Other than her penchees being a little shaky at the end of the first section I thought she danced well, with great energy. But honestly I just think she is too short for the role. I would have liked Miriam Miller or Christina Clark to get a shot at it.
  12. I was hoping that Ramasar at least would retire quietly. I agree with his firing but it’s sad how his career ended in such an awful way. Perhaps the interim team will now make some promotions? The morale at the company must be quite low, and promotions might alleviate some of that.

    Casting out for week 1. LaFreniere debuts as the tall girl in Rubies, which is exciting. I was hoping to see Reichlen, though, as I've never seen her do the part before, so I'm a little disappointed.
