NYCB 'Dances at a Gathering'

Recommended Posts

the photo presumably shows a moment of the last section of Robbins' work sometime after the premiere.

left to right, for those who might not know is:

John Prinz, John Clifford, Allegra Kent and Gelsey Kirkland (all but Kirkland were in the first cast).

yes, one can almost here this finale's 'rumbling' Nocturne, op. 15, no. 1, in the air of this photo.

it might date from the fall/winter 69/70 run of the ballet - following the sping '69 premiere season, when Kirkland first entered the cast as the 'run-on girl' at this time "in Apricot" if mem. serves.

correct: if Kent's in the pic, she'd be 'in apricot' so Kirkland was likely here the 'run-on girl' 'in blue'; it's funny because there was a thought that Kirkland didn't enter the cast until after Kent left when Leland, originally 'in blue,' andwent to 'in apricot' and so on...

but obviously Kent's still in the cast: ah the mysteries of the colors of DANCES AT A GATHERING.
