A review of New York City Ballet in 'Jewels' by Marina Harss for DanceTabs.

Quote

....... the absence of Tiler Peck and Ashley Laracey, the former due to an injury, the latter to maternity leave, was felt, particularly in the Emeralds section of Jewels. City Ballet currently has no compelling cast in this most delicate of ballets, despite a promising début in the trio by Rachel Hutsell. The two leading female roles, made for Violette Verdy and Mimi Paul, require dancers with strong imaginations, who can flesh out its delicate moods, evoking La Sylphide and the French chansons de geste. The performance I saw on Sept. 18, led by Lauren King and Emilie Gerrity, was well danced but lacked heft, despite a throbbing, focused performance of the Gabriel Fauré score by the New York City Ballet orchestra, under the baton of Andrew Litton. It makes a noticeable difference when Litton, music director of the company, is in the pit; the orchestra has presence and sings, providing a convincing counterpart for the dancing.
