YAGP in NYC in April in Multi- and Cross-Company Events, Festivals, Galas, & Dancer Groups/Solos Posted April 18, 2015 Saw the 'Legacy' program last night---can't quite understand the criticism of Hallberg's commentary. His comments on being a dancer were thoughtful and welcome. Such an articulate fellow----commentary could be a second career for him. Semyon Chudin was the highlight of the program for me---all I could think was 'WOW'! Kondaurova did not 'pull off' 'Diamonds'-- too much emoting, girl! She was ever the Russian Prima Ballerina......The surprise was an insert in the program for Veronika Part in a Lubovitch contemporary solo to Scriabin. She was sandwiched between Obraztsova and Kondaurova and held her own Thje Tokyo Ballet in Bhakti while not one of my favorite Bejart's (yes, I do have favorites) had an interest the other two ballets lacked. It has been a long time since I went to a program of this kind---and it's bound to be longer still before I go back.
