Peter Martins’ Ballets - Which Will Stand the Test of Time?

I mean this more as a sad reflection. Lifar & Martins both led major ballet troupes for many years, both suffered from “a whif of scandal” during their terms (for very different reasons/allegations), and were both highly prolific choreographers, yet a very small percentage of their respective outputs is -in Lifar’s case - still in the rep or - in Martins’ case - in danger of the same fate. 

I understand your point, but I was just so impressed with the comparison -- Martins is in many ways a contemporary version of Lifar, and the rest of his career may indeed follow the same pattern.

Thanks, Sandik. I just didn’t want folks to think that I was pegging Lifar’s known pro-Nazi feelings to Martins.
