    Kind of a weird non-sequitur but I was wondering if perhaps Robbie Fairchild could come back and bolster the principal male ranks at NYCB? Or is it a no-go because of his break up with Tiler Peck?

    Just came home from the Sat evening performance. Gonzalo Garcia was beautiful tonight in Apollo. He is physically stunning and moves with assurance and feeling. Of his muses my favorite was Lauren Lovette for her gracious, spiritual quality, though both Sterling and Abi Stafford did quite well too. Seems that Stafford has gotten cast more since her brother took over. When Peter was at the helm in the last few years I seldom saw her onstage. Anyway, it was expertly danced by all and the music is so gorgeous. Orpheus was good tonight and I was especially surprised by how well Ask La Cour did. This is the best thing I've seen him in; he articulated the movement very well, and really played the blind part convincingly. Perhaps he's found a niche here? Reichlen was his Eurydice and she was statuesque and lovely. Agon was great. I was astounded and impressed by Miriam Miller. I had found her rather bland in the past, but she was crisp, articulate, musical and focused tonight. Expertly partnered by Russell Janzen. Gerrity did well in her trio with the two men, but I would say Miller was the stand out. Rest of the cast was okay. All in all the night was fabulous. Orchestra sounded great, and I felt very uplifted and hopeful as the company seems to be thriving right now. Has everyone been able to breath easier since Peter's departure? Who knows? As my husband said, it's a well oiled machine. True. And its future looks bright from where I'm sitting.

    I absolutely loved "Ballet Imperial" too! I had never seen it and was captivated. And Serenade, for me, often moves into the realm of the mystical.

    I saw Alston performing this season already. I went to opening night and last night. Can't remember which I saw her in, but she was there...

    Ramasar was fabulous in Agon and is greatly missed, I agree. Also I agree with your other assessments and imagine that Stanley was nervous and being perhaps more careful than he will be later on when he has more experience in the role. I am bewildered that the Angle brothers are still performing with the company. I saw Jared doing Serenade tonight and Tyler doing Mozartiana. I understand loyalty to long time company members, and I get it that they are good partners, but they are no longer appealing physically. When Joseph Gordon came onstage tonight to dance Tchai Piano Concerto #2, we finally saw an elegant, fit and handsome young man with clean and athletic technique. That's what this company needs in its male dancers. Do they need to go across the pond to Denmark to find another gorgeous Dane like Ib Anderson?

    Taylor Stanley was beautiful, sensual, and expressive in his debut tonight in Apollo. Muses were Tiler Peck, gorgeous as always, and Brittany Pollack and Indiana Woodward. Hurray for this historic moment: first man of color to be cast as Apollo in a normally programmed NYCB performance. Orpheus was beautiful, the set design is stunning and costumes good too. I like Gonzalo Garcia and also I always enjoy Sterling Hyltin. Peter Walker was very good tonight as well. Agon, Megan Le Crone looked very good, so glad there is more life in her after so many injuries. Maria Kowroski was magnificent in the pas de deux. Lately I had been wondering if she was ready to retire, but tonight's performance showed only mastery. All in all a really good beginning to the season. Fourth ring almost empty, oh well.

    Job posting for artistic director

    I'm kind of tired of the speculation. Announce who it is and then we can all move on. I wonder if Dance Magazine has any insider info, re when they said it could be any day now, that NYCB makes the announcement. Anyway, I hope it's soon. I'm getting exhausted!

    Agreed that in the male soloist ranks there are definite potential stars, as well as Mejia in the corps. Let's see what happens. Also agree that while Segin is an appealing and perhaps dependable corps member, not sure why she would get an award particularly. I had thought she would probably stay in the corps for her career but who knows?

    I just read the article. It is a little disturbing to think that Taylor Stanley might eventually leave the company to seek artistic fulfillment elsewhere. Frankly when they lost Ramasar, Stanley was my only consolation among the principal men. Not happy with the Angle brothers...

    SO excited to see Ashly Isaacs will be back, though she seems to be cast only in Times are Racing at this point. Where was she?? Also, I totally agree about the weird bow on the man in Tschai Pas. Saw the rehearsal today. Looks like it was the cast with Gerrity and Wellington and I thought that was Erica Pereira but maybe it was Sara Adams? Who were the men besides Harrison Coll, Peter Walker and Schumacher? I saw Jansen in the background but he's in a different cast. Also in the studio from the other cast, Paszcoguin, Kretzschmar, and Reichlen.

    I love that penchee. Okay, I'll keep my eye out for her...

    I like to see that role danced by someone really solid with a commanding presence.
