The Mariinsky Ballet performs at the Kennedy Center.

Quote

The opening night audience on Tuesday was treated to the glittering ballerina Viktoria Tereshkina in the role of Paquita, and Timur Askerov as Paquita’s devoted suitor, Andrés.  Opening night for any touring ballet company can be hit or miss depending on how much rehearsal time a troupe has had beforehand and how much jet lag its dancers are battling. While there were some minor stumbles throughout the night, Tereshkina and Askerov led their colleagues through a mostly remarkable performance.

A review of the Mariinsky Ballet by Sarah L. Kaufman in The Washington Post.

If that phrase brings to mind a reverent display of familiar motifs, you have a good idea of what’s on offer here. Unveiled in 2017, the ballet is like a bound, glossy postcard collection that captures tourist sites in cliched beauty. “Paquita” unfolds as a string of virtuosic variations, each designed for optimum visual effect but offering few surprises and precious little in terms of compelling storytelling or expressive nuance.

Oregon Ballet Theatre presents a mixed bill.

Quote

From the sharp angles of William Forsythe’s  In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated to the lavish curves of Dennis Spaight’s Scheherazade, Oregon Ballet Theatre celebrated the company’s 30th anniversary on Saturday night  with technical fireworks, wit, drama, and the speed, energy, and adaptability that are the hallmarks of American dancers.
