A look at the performance history of "The Fairy's Kiss" and Ratmansky's new version by Marina Harss for The New York Times.

 

Jordan Levin, similarly, for The Miami Herald.

Quote

Stravinsky conceived the kiss as the gift — or curse — of creativity, bestowed by the fairy, a tribute to Tschaikovsky’s talent, as well as his emotionally troubled life.

 

“The fairy kisses the boy like the muse kissed Tschaikovsky,” Ratmansky says. “At the end of the ballet, she takes him to the place beyond space and time, where he belongs to her.”
