  1. I;ve got a new bachtrack article! https://bachtrack.com/review-all-balanchine-new-york-city-ballet-lincoln-center-february-2019 I also did a wrapup of the Winter Season which had sme backstage drama and finally the appointment of permanent leaders at NYCB: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2019/03/a-review-of-nycb-at-bachtrack-winter.html
  2. No but I am thinking of going to Philly to review PABallet's new Giselle production.
  3. I think it also makes it easier to change a pair of tights if one rips during practice.
  4. I think it's a practice clothes thing but it became an actual costume in Peck's new work. I've never seen it this way in an actual costume. Balanchine probably would have been appalled -- he was such a fan of the clean leotard look.
  5. Thank you! I'm still going to be reviewing dance on my blog simply because I see more dance than I can cover in single performances but I'm really excited for this new gig at bachtrack!
  6. Some debuts in NYCB's Sleeping Beauty: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2019/02/nycbs-sleeping-beauty-has-radiant-new.html Plus I am officialyl writing for Bachtrack! https://bachtrack.com/review-to-create-a-world-gallim-dance-joyce-theater-new-york-city-february-2019
  7. Yes his simple happy stage presence is always a joy. I first heard him in La Sonnambula and was amazed at the beauty of his voice. He's been one of my favorite tenors since.
  8. I know Javier Camarena is singing Tonio in Covent Garden later this year. Dont miss him he is wonderful! https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2019/02/la-fille-du-regiment-vive-la-france.html?m=1
  9. Justin Peck's Principia, Herman Schmerman Revival, and other NYCB Winter Season Diaries: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2019/02/nycb-winter-diaries-justin-pecks.html
  10. The first week of winter season at nycb had a lot of debuts: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2019/01/city-ballet-winter-season-brings-new.html
  11. Anyone going to the HD today?
  12. Well I prefer to remember them in happier times:
  13. Great review! Interesting what you say about Kaufmann. I saw him in this role in a concert and he and Gheorghiu both have that extremely careful way of singing. However I must say that together they both made ravishing sounds. I read from Gheorghiu's biography that Kaufmann and Gheorghiu have fallen out. Too bad. They sure made some beautiful music together.
  14. I do remember an attempt at a cat's cradle except horribly bungled up. There was also some refernce to the gypsy-like dancers Ashton liked to sprinkle into his ballets. Anyway it was one of the better ballet-in-an-opera I've seen in awhile.
  15. Well there is the ribbon aspect of the Judgment of Paris ballet but it's more of a baroque ballet parody. Paris is almost ridiculously Adonis-like. Trying to find a video of it but can't.
