  1. This program of The Sleeping Beauty prologue and Abrazo, a premiere by Nayon Iovino, got me wondering if, at a time when dancers' faces must be partially covered, choosing repertory that leans more toward control than abandon is such a prudent choice. More thoughts here in my review.
  2. I love hearing about ballerinas who also want to be scientists As what happened when I interviewed Jordan-Elizabeth Long, only a couple of questions led to an essay-length response. Hope you enjoy reading Eastlyn's as much as I did!
  3. This program is only available for a few more hours, so if you're interested you'll need to get on it quickly. One of the positive outcomes of the current pandemic is the opportunity to see more regional companies that generally speaking don't have as broad a reach as more globally recognized national ones - here's my thoughts on Ballet Arizona
  4. I've been catching up with the newspaper links, and am fascinated to see that Ballet Arizona, of all people, has just danced the first performances on US soil of Bournonville's "Napoli". It appears to have gone down extremely well with the critics: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/17/arts/dance/review-ballet-arizonas-napoli-embodies-a-culture-of-exuberance.html?_r=1 http://www.danceviewtimes.com/2015/02/tales-of-the-danish-southwest.html and I hope the audiences appreciated it as well. The Danceviewtimes article in particular gives an excellent report of the ballet, and I particularly like this comment: "You can’t delete religion or its trappings from “Napoli” any more than you can take the cross out of “Dracula” without damaging its architecture. You’re removing a counterweight to other themes." Other stagers, please take note! It sounds very much as though the production is highly similar to the one Festival Ballet used in 1989, which I really liked. It's great to see Ballet Arizona doing something like this, and marvellous that Ib Andersen isn't neglecting his own heritage. Lucky Phoenix! I wonder if they would ever end up doing a mini Bournonville festival in the US in a similar way to what Sarasota Ballet do with Ashton? I don't suppose we have any readers who actually saw this, and who would like to report back, do we?
