  1. I love Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's -- with Quinn Wharton's filming -- so, so, so, so, so, so much <3. It's part of Whim W'him's digital season Choreographic Shindig Vi which just opened tonight. (Literally).
  2. Unfortunately, no. There was a recording made in Montreal, with all of the original cast except McBride in Hayden's role -- Mein, Geliebter -- and excerpts from it were shown in the PBS two-part Balanchine bio doc. We were all hoping that when they started to release DVD's of those Montreal years, they would finally get to Liebeslieder, but, alas they stopped doing releases.
  3. For Sun Valley, they used some chamber music arrangements. For example, it was a piano and violin duet that played for Leta Biasucci in the Verdy solo from Emeralds, recorded recently on the McCaw Hall stage. (Not archival, like the Neenan, for example.) I think this works beautifully at Vail: it was one of the things I noticed during the streams they made available this summer. Mark Morris also generally uses chamber music, but he choreographs to a lot of chamber music, not to transcriptions for chamber groups. My take from the descriptions I've seen is that it's unlimited viewin
  4. Heather Watts and Bart Cook gave my favorite performances of the Nein, Geliebter roles.
  5. At NYCB Ashley Bouder, Merrill Ashley, and Patricia Wilde come to mind.
  6. I'm looking forward to seeing them all, while being glad to see some of the performances from earlier in the decade.
  7. The verbal tap-dancing between mother and daughter sometimes reminded me of Fred and Ginger.
  8. I used to fast-forward to the scenes with Edward Hermann, whom I was privileged to see (live) in "Plenty." I just loved him.
  9. From Links, Louisville Ballet is prepoing for a digital season: and NYCB is producing a mini-festival with new work within its digital season:
  10. Dance Edit's newsletter today led with a link to survey results published by TRG Arts about optimism and plans by arts organizations in the US for in-person performs. The surveys were performed over time and over an expanded number of organizations surveyed: https://trgarts.com/blog/arts-culture-planning-2020-comeback-sep.html?utm_source=The+Dance+Edit&utm_campaign=972d5be06a-TheDanceEdit20200917&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_71d672be74-972d5be06a-69902614 Needless to say, the results aren't encouraging.
  11. PNB has. Jessica Lang has been choreographing in person for the Company. Peter Boal described in his Conversations on Dance interview that she is moving between studios, each of which has a separate dancer pod. Per this PNB Blog post from August:
  12. I was also lucky enough to have seen Evelyn Cisneros dance towards the end of her career. She will now direct Ballet West's school Here's the press release: EVELYN CISNEROS-LEGATE APPOINTED INCOMING DIRECTOR OF THE FREDERICK QUINNEY LAWSON BALLET WEST ACADEMY SALT LAKE CITY, UT--The Frederick Quinney Lawson Ballet West Academy is thrilled to announce world-renowned ballerina Evelyn Cisneros-Legate has been appointed as the new Director of all four campuses of the school. Cisneros-Legate, a native of Huntington Beach, California trained at the San Francisco Bal
  13. I would think that Principal Dancers especially would have no reason to be present in NYC. Most of them know their roles and can refresh their memory from tape. Who can partner whom is highly restricted even among companies in North America where dancers have returned. No dance companies are in an NBA- or NHL-like bubble for the long-term.
  14. Ikolo Griffin has joined the faculty at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School! I'm really glad for the school and him: I remember his dancing at SFB.
