  1. Well, in anticipation of possible promotions today, I decided to prepare "Principal Pork" for dinner tonight -- a recipe from Jock Soto and Heather Watts' "Our Meals" cookbook. This was the dinner Jock prepared upon learning he had been promoted. It's a delicious recipe I've made for years and I'm making it now...promotions or no promotions! Even though there were no announcements today, and I can't presume to know why or why not, sounds like it was a beautiful fall season. Thank you to everyone who kept this far away Texas fan informed with your eyewitness accounts and amazing insights which I truly appreciate. I really live for your reviews since it is not very often that I can get there myself. Until "Nutcracker!"
  2. Congratulations to them! Can we expect to hear more company promotions announced this weekend? Fingers crossed!
  3. I don't know who has been taken into the company, but I do know that Shelby Tzung has accepted a contract with the National Ballet of Canada. She is also one of this year's Mae L. Wien Award recipients. (Shelby came from Westside Ballet in Santa Monica, CA, founded by Yvonne Mounsey -- my daughters former pre-professional school -- and this was posted on their social media. Andrew Veyette is also an alumnus.)
  4. Week 5 casting is up: https://www.nycballet.com/NYCB/media/NYCBMediaLibrary/PDFs/Press/Casting/NYCB-Casting-February-19-24-2019-lobby.pdf
  5. I was there last night and agree with the comments from Cobweb and Nanushka. I was kind of dreading the "See The Music" too but found it delightful and loved seeing the orchestra and Susan Walter highlighted. Serenade was a joy. Mozartiana even more so and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Tyler Angle as a partner. I thought he looked foar more comfortable and commanding in the role than Chase Finlay whom I saw last February. Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto Number 2 swept me away. I just love Joseph Gordon. I find that he carries himself with such nobility and elan, and the future looks bright for him. As for the new Tchaikovsky costumes, from my seat in row N of the orchestra, the bodices did not appear too heavy for the skirts as they might have close up, per some earlier comments. Overall, I thought they "read" very well color-wise, the vest design of the men's costumes notwithstanding. The women's dresses -- especially the principals' -- were super-sparkly -- not enough to outsparkle Ashley Bouder, of course, but at moments I found the bling almost blinding. This coming from a person who loves sparkle in every form!
  6. I am in town on business from Texas and going on Jan. 23rd. Excited to see Mearns and Peck in Serenade but also would have loved to see the Lovette/Gerrity debuts later in the week.
  7. Per Justin Peck's InstaStories, four apprentices have been named. Looks like three women and one man. Of course, I don't know who any of them are. They are all in Western Symphony costumes in the story.
  8. Hmm. I remember that she danced a lead in Concerto Barocco in the SAB Workshop (and I think also as part of the Proteges program at the Kennedy Center) but didn't know she did it once she joined the company. It isn't listed in her repertoire. In any case, I see she is cast as "Prayer" in Coppelia, and I wish her well!
  9. Is anyone else besides me rooting for the promotion of Lydia Wellington?
  10. Thank you so much, CTballetfan! I live in Texas and don't get to see NYCB very often, so I appreciate your report and those of others as well. I am determined to get there in fall to see "Jewels" in the afternoon and at night, "Barocco," "Tchai Pas" and "Symphony in C" (plus Stravinsky). That seems like an epic day at NYCB and a good use of my travel $!

  12. Was anyone there today to see Sara M. and Tyler A. in their Tchai Pas debuts (well, NY debut for him)? By the look of the curtain call on Sara's Instastories, the applause was thunderous!
  13. They did the fourth movement only in 2014. Sounds like they are doing the ballet in its entirety this time.
  14. I will be flying in from Texas to see both performances on February 10th. I am very excited!
