Friday (tomorrow) is Tiler Peck's debut in the Act II Divertissement. Save the program: she's likely to :kickass:
Reid Anderson, of the Stuttgart Ballet, talked about working with Cranko in the lecture he did recently at the Guggenheim Works + Process. He said Cranko always felt the choreography could tell the whole story and that reading a program shouldn't be necessary. This is utterly clear in Onegin; you know who is who and who is doing what to whom at all times. Until tonight I hadn't seen this in over 20 years and I didn't look at the program once (lighting at the Met is so dim) - there was no need to. The choreography told me everything I needed to know.
Cranko was the master at that. He died way too young. How come Stuttgart doesn't come here anymore? They used to be a staple at Kennedy Center, and they came to the US almost every year. They were my favorite company back then. No stars? Haydee/Cragun/Keil were international stars back then.

Just in case you were wondering what Australian Ballet's "Swan Lake" is about:
Murphy's "Swan Lake," originally created in 2002, for the ballet company's 40th Anniversary, is loosely based on the Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Camilla Parker Bowles saga. Apparently there is no Odile, and instead of an evil wizard lurking about with a wicked daughter, there is a Baroness Von Rothbart, the princes' older, former lover who taunts the young bride, Odette. Instead of a case of mistaken identity and deception, we are presented with a conflicted, love triangle and the psychological effects of this situation on a young bride.
