Casting is certainly disappointing. I hope Gorak can still handle T&V. He barely gets cast in principal roles.
And disproved by the fact that Finlay and Lovette have been cast opposite each other up multiple times since they broke up their engagement.
I honestly can't fathom how the claims against NYCB & SAB won't get dismissed. Ditto for Ramasar & Catazaro There could be plenty of embarrassing things on Finlay's phone or email if that goes to trial. I would hope Finlay's lawyer is able to limit discovery to just messages involving Waterbury.
I relished reading the legal bitch-slapping handed down by SAB's legal team. In reading the correspondence between Eaton and Merson, you can immediately see how she lays out her facts plainly. Whil Merson, on the other hand, does the equivalent of "no, you!" In particular, Eaton's last letter where she tells Merson her intent to file a motion to dismiss was so badass. "We have a deal. Thanks and have a nice weekend."
I’m so unenthusiastic about this ABT season. I’m gonna see a couple of performances of Manon, and a couple of performances of Sleeping beauty. That’s about it. I couldn’t make it to any of the Tharp or Ratmansky programs, either. Oh well. Praying Herman will be able to dance Des Grieux.
Bouder and Huxley are an odd pairing to begin with. Their stage personas are too different. Something looks off with Bouder's port de bras. I can't really put my finger on it, but it's looks like she keeps her elbows bent when they should be straight. It just looks weird, especially since she already isn't blessed with long limbs. But I was speedy footwork remains super impressive.
Amar looked so happy up on that stage. I was hoping that the audience would welcome him back, but I was so moved by how boisterous the audience got. I was not expecting that, at all. It takes a lot to get the NYCB audience to cheer like that! I was happy I was there.
Indiana debuted Tarantella in 2017 at the Kennedy Center. We actually have rehearsal footage of it:
Thrilled to read that Amar will be back! The only thing I’m worried about is how management will handle his return.
Looks like the AGMA arbitration found in Catazaro’s favor, but he decided not to return to City Ballet.
Is it possible to get second-hand awkwardness? Because that’s what I felt watching Osipova’s video. Yikes.
She looked absolutely gorgeous! I hope she considers easing up on the severe eyeshadow and dark lipstick once she’s back at the ballet.
I didn’t know the performance will be live-streamed. Amar’s performance in Carmen is also getting broadcast in Italy. I hope it gets uploaded somewhere.
Congratulations to Stafford and Whelan! I hope it becomes a fruitful partnership.
It barely even counts as humiliation. It's a privilege to dance Aurora, and she got just as many performances as Hyltin. Her tantrum is born out of pure entitlement.
Throwing Hyltin under the bus like that was so petty and unprofessional. Hyltin embodies Aurora’s qualities far better than Bouder. Bouder might be able to pull of the Rose Adagio balances with more stability, but her characterization has no trace of Aurora.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he files a counterclaim. He seems to have outlined some of the damages against him in the motion to dismiss.
