  2. I tip my hat again to PA Ballet for their Resilience digital program! "And So It Is" wasn't my cup of tea, but it was nice to see Jermel Johnson. So Jung Shin stole the spotlight in "Polyphonia." "Raymonda Suite" looked beautiful -- set, costumes, lighting. I found Dayesi Torriente mesmerizing in the clapping variation (my least favorite of Raymonda's solos). "Allegro Brillante" was the best of the mixed bill. The dynamic between Mayara Piniero (vibrant) and Zecheng Liang (cool) made for a fantastic partnership. BRAVO!!!
  3. I really enjoyed the first program. Bravo to the dancers and everyone behind the scenes who made this possible!🌷
  4. Thank you, nanushka! Had not seen Balanchine's ballet before. His version seemed more atmospheric than dramatic: no mention/chance of Odette's spell being broken; Siegfried left alone in despair at dawn. The groupings and patterns of the swan maidens were quite lovely.
  5. WTTW's Making a New American Nutcracker (Joffrey Ballet's production by Wheeldon) -- available through Dec 31st.
  6. The All Balanchine program knocked it out of the park IMO!! I had a smile on my face almost from start to finish. Episodes and Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux were my favorite performances. 🥰
  7. Congratulations to Mr. Ahn, Mr. Bell, Ms. Brandt, Mr. Forster, Mr. Royal, Ms. Trenary, and Mr. Shayer!!
  8. School of American Ballet's Virtual Workshop (available until Monday, July 13 at 7pm ET)
  9. I received mine about 4:45pm yesterday, which for some reason arrived in my promotions folder...
  10. Scottish Ballet's The Fairy's Kiss (available until June 30)
  11. What a groundbreaking and amazing production! (I only knew of Creole Giselle from books and photos.) Ms Johnson was sublime. Ms Graves commanding and effortless. The whole company was magnificent (loved all the children in act 1). Costumes and sets stunning. The orchestra excellent. This version featured the most emotional act 2 I've seen; Giselle repeatedly pleading for Albert's life, even weeping at one point. I was breathless. BRAVO DTH!!!
  12. What a treat! And what a cast! Standouts for me was Les Sylphides (so otherworldly and romantic) and Theme and Variations (Gelsey and Mikhail...LEGENDARY). 🥰
  13. Lincoln Center's twitter account has tweets for the first two programs which include YouTube links (CARMEN.maquia and A Midsummer Night's Dream). Hopefully they will continue to tweet each program with links to view them. I, too, wasn't able to find anything about how long the non-NYCB programs will be available after they are first streamed.
  14. Royal Danish Ballet's A Folk Tale https://kglteater.dk/xtra/forestillinger/forestilling-et-folkesagn/?section=33063
  15. Wow oh WOW! I was blown away by MCB's Firebird. Everything -- the dancing, costumes, set, music -- was spectacular.
  16. Just finished Act I and was really struck by it. Beautiful waltz, lovely pas de trois, the dance of the goblets had me smiling. Wolfgang felt like a full-fledged character, his relationship with the prince endearing. (His reaction to being asked if he wanted to come with Siegfried to hunt was adorable!) Isaac's Siegfried was quite boyish and young before his mother turned everything upside down. The set and lighting was stunning, particularly during his solo, the stage going from dusk to night. I've seen many Act I Siegfried solos, yet never before had his restlessness, unidentifiable yearning felt so tangible.
