Albert Evans, RIP

Recommended Posts

I thought the same thing reading Instagram posts by Wendy Whelan, Maria Kowroski, Joaquin de Luz, and Sara Mearns. Very, very sad news.

Saw those. Not much is being said clearly, so tread lightly.

Several NYCB dancers (Sara Mearns, Justin Peck, Ashley Bouder) have either tweeted or put on Instagram that former NYCB principal and ballet master Albert Evans died late Monday evening. More detail will probably be forthcoming.

This is terrible news. I was so interested in watching him as a coach for Peck's work in Ballet 422 -- he seemed to have a great eye.

The most personal memory I have of Evans was from a tribute/memorial to the late Ulysses Dove that took place at the State Theater. Evans and various others performed Dove's Red Angels, and at the bows Evans had to wipe away tears. I remember reading that Evans regarded Dove as a mentor and role model.

So sorry Evans is gone at such a young age.

So sad to hear this. Such a wonderful artist. Unforgettable as Phlegmatic in 4 Ts

and as the winsome cowboy in Western Symphony.

Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Very sad news. And he obviously touched a generation of dancers as a coach, too. While he was very good in a host of Balanchine roles, some of my favorite performances of his were in somewhat guilty-pleasure pieces, because he could make bad ballets look really good with his beautifully musical dancing. He has passed way too early.
