Still Loyal to the Royal
Sarah Lamb and Steven McRae, photo by Andrea Mohin It used to be that the Royal Ballet's tours to the U.S. were guaranteed sell-outs and their stars had rabid followings across the pond. Margot! Rudi! Sibley and Dowell! Lynn Seymour! This was true even 10 y...

Sleeping Beauty, Take 3
Diana Vishneva, photo by Gene Schiavone I caught the final Sleeping Beauty in ABT's highly successful run. Alexei Ratmansky's new-old Sleeping Beauty has no doubt been the box office hit of the season -- today's performance was completely sold out (I stood)...

La Bayadere Brought to Life
Photo by Gene Schiavone There are certain performances where you go in with low or no expectations. I've sort of come to accept ABT's La Bayadere as a weak-tea version of Petipa's grand ballet. The corps formations in the Kingdom of the Shades are simplifie...

Ratmansky's New New Old Sleeping Beauty
Photo by Gene Schiavone I don't exactly understand why this is, but it seems as if ballet companies and choreographers delight in presenting us with their "original" takes on Swan Lake or Nutcracker but when it comes to Sleeping Beauty , they become obsesse...

Mad Men Finale
The image I'll take away from last night's Mad Men series finale isn't the Coke commercial that Don apparently dreamed up after he found peace in a California commune. It isn't Joan kicking ass and starting her own company (although that was wonderful). It ...

Romeo and JULIET
Photo by Nigel Norrington Evgenia Obraztsova was only 19 when she performed her first Romeo and Juliet at the Mariinsky. She was an instant sensation. It's not hard to see why. She looks like the Juliet of your dreams -- the huge saucer eyes, the radiant sm...

Sleeping Beauty, Take 2
Photo by Rosalie O'Connor Last night I saw a second cast of Alexei Ratmansky's much-talked about Sleeping Beauty . And again, I was amazed at how Ratmansky demanded (and got) all the ABT dancers to drop their usual dancing instincts and to dance his way. Ag...

NYCB Does Bournonville
I've now sat through three completely different casts of the NYCB's Bournonville program. It is strange how, as a rule, the Bournonville style manages to completely defeat many of NYCB's most excellent technicians, whereas some of their less experienced cor...
