  1. I feel so sorry for ticket buyers who come to this production expecting a full-on Swan Lake with beautiful sets, gorgeous costumes, and good storytelling. I imagine they are so disappointed and certainly are not likely to return to NYC Ballet for another show of any program.
  2. Mine (one full and one half subscription) arrived in Brooklyn this past Saturday.
  3. Tonight Herman Cornejo debuts "Suite of Dances" by Jerome Robbins (and coached by Damian Woetzel). Anyone going to be there?
  4. Third movement Symphony in C was Bailey Jones, not Indiana Woodward, with Sebastian Villarini-Velez.
  5. In an Instagram post on May 26, Alastair Macaulay explained the initials on each bell. I can't copy his text so check it out on IG.
  6. Did you notice the casting for the last day (June 3) of the season? Cameron Dieck gets to retire making his debut (!) in Agon and reprising his role in The Four Temperaments. Savannah Lowery retires dancing Concerto Barocco and Agon. Should be a lovely day at the ballet.
  7. Who will walk through the doors next? Suzanne Farrell? 🤞
  8. In case you haven't heard the report filed by Jeff Lunden on NPR's All Things Considered today in which he speaks with Wilhelmina Frankfurt, Wendy Whelan, and Kelly Cass Boal, here's the link.
  9. Has this music ever been used for ballet, either the entire suite (40 mins) or selected movements? The Gadfly story may not be the best for a ballet but the music -- even I could choreograph to it.
  10. I saw the program last night. I recommend sitting as far back as possible for the last ballet. The recorded music will knock you out of your seat. And no, it's not worth $185.
  11. Which explains the cartwheels and the music in the last class Craig Salstein taught at ABT (see Instagram video posted in this thread on Aug. 5) ;)
  12. Comparing the roster in tonight's program to one from June 12, it appears that four of the five apprentices got corps contracts since the 12th. Congrats to Carlos Gonzalez, Annabel Katsnelson, Xuekan Lu, and Gabrielle Perkins. Kiely Groenewegen is still listed as an apprentice.
