A Ratmansky Celebration Review (American Ballet Theatre)


Recommended Posts

Aside from Skylar Brandt's performances, I was not as wowed as I was hoping to be by this performance. I was especially unenthused about the premiere of Bernstein in a Bubble...Here's my review; has anyone else watched this yet?

I really enjoyed this. I do take your point in the review about the changing camera angles, but I was happy enough with the presentation and felt I always had a good view of the dancing.

 

I thought Skylar Brandt was incredible in the Rose Adagio - such control in the balances! Really enjoyed the other two excerpts - especially the beautiful Pas de Deux from The Seasons. Although both left me wishing I could see the full ballets!

 

I actually thought Bernstein in a Bubble was great to watch. The blend of playfulness and wonderful dancing put me in mind of Bright Stream a little bit. I'll be watching again a few times while it's still available!

I may watch Bernstein again as I seem to be one of only a few who was not wowed by it; perhaps I will get something different out of it next time!
