    I hope Clifford writes that book... better yet, I hope he illustrates it with video... i'd like to hear what and where the differences are... it would be a resource for the future, when the dominant version has become cliché
  2. Is the movement dated, or is it the music? Perhaps a new score for the existing choreography would liven it up. Personally, I'm appalled at Spielberg's timing.
  3. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place, but I see no thread for World Ballet Day. Please move this post if necessary. Tuesday, Oct 2, is 2018's rendition. I've enjoyed much enjoyed the look inside these presentations have offered. Does anyone know why there is no North American host this year? Why no SFB or NBC?
  4. Any performing arts institution without State or Royal subsidy is a house of cards. Tell me again where NYCB's longtime co-tenant at the State Theater, NYCO, is these days?
  5. Thank you for saying this... While many of us no doubt have been contemplating some of the famous Balanchine & Kirstein quotes Bentley mentioned, Bentley seems to have an axe to grind against Martins, and having written "Submission" seems the wrong person to be throwing stones.

    I hope they archived that! (If they shot it)
  7. I find these two statements contradictory, if you are referencing the assault situation I think you are referencing. Or does the apology and acceptance not count as far as what NYCB cares about?

    I was watching these two clips and wondering if Baryshnikov & Makarova have ever coached this pas de deux for the estate's video archives?
  9. I would like to thank the volunteer administrators of this board, and Helene in particular, for the time she has recently donated keeping up with this thread. I am so grateful to you for making this and all the other discussions possible, despite the amount of oversight a thread like this requires. I hope this is not considered discussing the discussers. Thank you.
  10. The situation is horrific. On top of that, a treasured institution is at considerable risk. These are times when the situation leaves one aghast. Even saying the institution is at risk implies there is something worth more than human lives. I don't know how to express both my disgust and my concern at the same time.

    Surely you meant "vise", unfortunate typo given the behavior allegations...

    yes... and how many generations away from Balanchine's dancers can that legacy have influence... how do we keep what happened to Petipa's legacy from happening to Balanchine's? Pretty soon all the dancers start to look alike... is there an artistic director with a strong enough vision to shape the identity of the company that won't erase that legacy? Where is our "forward to Balanchine" candidate as Balanchine was "forward to Petipa"?

    I guess the issue with both Watts & Andersen is age... Lopez is only a couple of years younger... perhaps they want the same person in place for 15 years... before they reach 70... that disqualifies all three. Boal was born in 65. Lopez in 58, Andersen in 54, Watts in 53. It is a problem. It takes a certain number of years to distinguish oneself as enough of an experienced director... and if birth year is a problem, we are getting further and further away from artists who knew Balanchine.

    Hubbe is an interesting idea. He would perhaps be less contoversial at NYCB han he was at RDB, at least artistically. I have not seen Ballet Arizona in person, but to judge by the promotional material put out over the years since Andersen took over, he has done a good job with artistic vision, drawing talented staff to a small company. It is not the same thing as seeing the company live though. It a shame Tomasson has aged out, SFB seems a very well run company. Perhaps Clifford is just mourning his lost youth.
