  1. word came yesterday of the death of Marvin Hoshino, Editor and Designer for BALLET REVIEW; date of death was not mentioned.
  2. A colleague in Paris writes as follows (excuse possible duplication): Manuel Legris is putting something together instead of the cancelled” Gala Nurejew” on Thursday June 25that 2pm Paris time, i.e; at 8 am NY time. It’s live transmission from the Wiener Staatsoper. https://www.staatsoperlive.com/event/2/4d853555-c344-480f-a749-411850e58d78/watch
  3. F.Y.I. the following has come in from the p.r. of Lincoln Center at Home: <<Lincoln Center at Home’s June 22 stream of a 1978 Live From Lincoln Center broadcast of New York City Ballet performing George Balanchine and Alexandra Danilov’s full-length production of Coppélia will be replaced with a stream consisting of the third act of Coppélia only, preceded by three highlights from the 2004 Live From Lincoln Center Broadcast of the Balanchine 100 Centennial Celebration: Balanchine’s Brahams-Schoenberg Quartet (fourth movement) with Wendy Whelan and Damian Woetzel; Concerto Barocco with Maria Kowroski, Rachel Rutherford, and James Fayette; “The Man I Love” pas de deux from Who Cares? with Alexandra Ansanelli, Nilas Martins and featuring a special performance of the Gershwin score by Wynton Marsalis. The decision was made by New York City Ballet and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts not to show the complete Coppélia after reviewing the footage from the 1978 Live From Lincoln Center broadcast. >>
  4. Sally Banes, author of, among other books, TERPSICHORE IN SNEAKERS and other accomplishments died yesterday.
  5. news of the death of Anne H. Bass yesterday has come today.

  7. indeed, Rapp danced Don Quixote during the first run of the ballet, he was first-cast; Balanchine's appearances were special occasions.
  8. much admired NYCB dancer and revered S.A.B. teacher, Richard Rapp died on Jan. 14. The attached photo, showing Rapp (as the Hoofer) and Suzanne Farrell (as the Strip Tease Girl) is dated July, 1968, just months after the ballet entered NYCB repertory in May, when Arthur Mitchell performed as the Hoofer; it was likely used as publicity for NYCB's season in Saratoga Springs. (a few tributes to Mr. Rapp have been posted on Instagram and Facebook)
  9. It looks as if the woman seated next to Farrell is Susan Pillare.

  11. A friend of Don McDonagh and the late Leslie Getz has sent word that Don died yesterday, Tuesday, Dec. 10, in Manhattan.
  12. 6 months before Balanchine created THEME AND VARIATIONS for Ballet Theatre with Alicia Alonso and Igor Youskevitch, DANCE MAGAZINE featured them on its cover in the company's then 4-year-old staging of his APOLLO, with designs by Karinska. both ballets, as it turns out, are in ABT's repertory in the month of Alonso's death. (the muses alongside Alonso's Terpsichore are Nora Kaye as Polyhymina and Barbara Fallis as Calliope)
  13. ballet photographer and historian, particularly of Russian ballet, especially of Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet, died on June 15, 2019. She also had an abiding interest in the Gershwin brothers and in Vivian Leigh. the NYPL lists her book of Bolshoi Ballet photographs thus: The Bolshoi Ballet / photos. by Judy Cameron ; introd. and notes by Walter Terry. 1st ed. New York : Harper & Row, [1975] 178 p. : chiefly ill. ; 25 cm. Icon editions. "A Helene Obolensky Enterprises, inc., book."
  14. if memory serves, I believe that Morris was married at one point to a musicIan connected to TeIji Ito, who composed the score for Jerome Robbins's WATERMILL, or perhaps i'm just recalling that Morris once played with ensemble when WATERMILL was performed at the NYSTheater, or perhaps i'm miles off... since writing the above the following information has come in from a one-time colleague of Marnee Morris's: <<Marnee was married twice. First to fellow NYCB dancer Roger Peterson and then later to Teiji, and had a baby with him.>> no dates were given.
