Maria Kowroski Will Retire on May 23, 2021


Recommended Posts

I was able to log into my NYCB account and see my subscription dates for Spring 2021.  May 23, 2021 at 3PM is listed as Maria Kowroski's Farewell.  I hope we can all return to the theater to give her a proper farewell.

By the time the company is performing again, whether this winter or spring (hopefully not later...), I wouldn't be surprised if we see more retirements of senior principals and soloists. I also wonder what about the status of those who were apprentices when things were cancelled. No doubt there will be a lot of shakeup. 

On my subscription, I see that I was scheduled for a program called "Baroque Variations." I wonder what was included in that!

A wonderful ballerina -- stunningly beautiful (and great at comedy too). I very much hope she can give a live farewell performance.

What comedy roles are you thinking of? I never saw Maria Kowrowski in The Concert I remember seeing her in Herman Schmerman and just being dumbstruck by her her artistry. I also have special memories of her in the 2nd Movement of Symphony in C. She was the go-to for that role for quite awhile and danced it regularly. Her performances in the Wheeldon duets, After the Rain and Liturgy are also fabulous. And Agon...  And Stravinsky Violin Concerto.... I could go on and on.

I was thinking of Wheeldon’s Variations Sérieuses....I think it dropped out of the rep so people don’t remember it much...,

 Also, Titania in Midsummer, the Susan Stroman ballets, Slaughter on Tenth Ave.

Such a fun ballet ... I don't know why it fell out of the rep. But yes, Kowroski's comic chops were on full display. The tender little pas de cinq for Kathleen Tracey (as the stage manager) and four stagehands with big push brooms is one of the sweetest things Wheeldon has ever choreographed.
