  1. I am wondering, given the tremendous losses the company is certainly facing, especially if we consider a fall season or even Nutcracker possibly not happening, whether they are having to contemplate reducing the size of the company? There are certainly dancers close to retirement, and also perhaps some that are just not on stage that much anymore. I just wonder if that is something they will have to consider.
  2. This is just one more sad and totally unexpected thing to happen in the last two weeks. Who would have ever thought we would find ourselves here? I am glad to read that they will be paying the dancers, but I imagine they will have to slash costs somehow. I will be back in full force in September attending many performances, and supporting this beloved company!
  3. Great choice. I would love to see Lovette's interpretation.
  4. I thought Voices was a scintillating, and enthralling departure from Ratmansky's previous work, most of which I really enjoy. It shows his artistic range and sense of risk taking and adventure in doing something out of his comfort zone, that is, using "music" like this. The choreography I found inventive and interesting and the performances were top quality. So, while the "music" was a bit odd, and not always pleasant, I was happily surprised to love this new piece. I will see it again.
  5. I just went to the opening night show and noticed that one couple of corps dancers did not finish the show in Stravinsky Violin Concerto, on stage left (dancers' perspective). Anyone else notice? I wondered if someone got hurt? The piece started with 16 corps dancers and ended with 14. Can't tell who was gone...
  6. Those are my two favorites of Peck too. And I also loved Belles Lettres.
  7. I saw the show. Lauren King did a great job in Stafford's part, and Woodward also, though no one can match Tiler Peck in that role, in my view. She is a phenomenon.
  8. I agree with both of these statements. I'm glad as an audience member that I'll be able to see Ramasar dance again, but what he did is classic Frat Boy mentality, and he is a man in his 30's. Not okay.

    Kathryn Morgan

    I was thinking the same thing. What rank will they give her? She got to soloist at NYCB... There is nothing yet on the MCB website, so we'll just have to wait...
  10. I checked the MCB website as well and noticed that they still show Jovani Furlon on their roster when it has already been announced that he will join NYCB this year. So maybe they are waiting to update that info on their site. Also, it will be interesting to see what rank they give her. She got to soloist at NYCB...
  11. Apparently, the press release has just gone out that Kathryn Morgan is joining Miami City Ballet. Good for her! Having to leave NYCB after coming down with an auto-immune illness, and thinking she might never dance again has to have been so tough. I wish her the best in that fabulous company. It was announced on a FB live broadcast from YAGP.
  12. I have 2 great seats in the orchestra available for this date. Program: Hallelujah Junction, Herman Schmerman, The Exchange, Concerto DSCH just send me an email at nraines59@gmail.com or respond here. Thanks!
  13. Thanks for posting this. I've put it on my calendar. it looks like NYCB has been using Silas Farley for these types of public lecture/demo events. He does a great job and is very well spoken. Good for him!
  14. Regarding the possibility of not renewing some contracts, to be honest I wouldn't necessarily renew Abi Stafford's for instance, but this is her brother. Who were you thinking of, who hasn't danced much? Just curious...
  15. One question I have is about promotion and hiring. Who will decide which SAB students to make apprentices, and who will decide on company promotions? Perhaps both of them will weigh in.
