NYCB Stars in Copenhagen, Sept 18-22

Recommended Posts

Just a note to say that the program has just been released for Nikolaj Hubbe's group of NYCB stars, which will be performing in Copenhagen next week.

We will be getting two separate programs - the first, all Balanchine, will include Mozartiana, Movements for Piano and Orchestra, an excerpt from Harlequinade, the first two movements of Stravinsky Violin Concerto, and an excerpt from Who Cares.

The second, billed as a Balanchine and Robbins night, will include (the inevitable) Apollo, In the Night, and Interplay.

Scheduled dancers include Wendy Whelan, Tom Gold, Maria Kowroski, Charles Askegard, Miranda Weese, Benjamin Milepied, James Fayette, Jennifer Ringer, Yvonne Borree, Carla Korbes, Faye Arthurs, Dana Hanson, Rachel Rutherford, Mary Helen Bowers, Stephen Hanna, Adam Hendrikson, Stuart Capps (!!) Carrie Lee Riggins, Glenn Keenan, and of course Hubbe himself.

The POB roster I have lists Isabelle Guerin, Laëtitia Pujol, Elenora

Abbagnato and Muriel Maffre (a Copenhagen favorite, she performed in Tivoli last year) on the women's side and Benjamin Pech, Jérémie Belingaard, Alessio Carbone and Pierre-Francois Vilanoba on the men's side.

The program includes Flames de Paris pas de deux, the Dying Swan, Roland Petit's Ma Pavlova pas de deux en Thaïs, Giselle pas de deux, Forsythe's In The Middle Somewhat Elevated, L'Après-midi d'un faune, Nureyev's Roméo et Juliette balcony scene, Petit's L'Arlésienne and Forsythe's Pas/Parts.

Thanks for the information, KayDenmark! It's interesting to see that Pierre-Francois Vilanoba still performs with his former POB fellows from time to time. In fact it should be "stars of the POB and the SFB"... :) The only two works of the program which are not in the POB repertory are Petit's "Ma Pavlova" and "Flames of Paris".

Which "L'Apres-Midi d'un Faune" will it be? (If it Nijinsky's, they'll have to bring quite a lot of sets...)

It is, in fact, the Nijinksy version, and will be danced by Muriel Maffre and Pierre-Francois Vilanoba as well as dancers from "the Pantomime Theater" - perhaps Tivoli's own.

I can't imagine that they'll bring too many sets....Tivoli performances tend to be a bit low-rent. Last year's performances featured recorded music that sounded like it was coming from an 8-track tape player, circa 1973.
