Proving the ocean is pink
I finally got my NYC residents card and one of the benefits is attending an NYCB rehearsal. Has anyone gone? How does that work?
Well, I'm a big fan of hers and I am very, very glad for Yulia. Saw her in London in "Swan Lake". Sublime.Yulia Stepanova (or Yangurazova as she goes by in her personal life). is the new Bolshoi principal (jumping several ranks). Not a big fan but her following is insane.
The latest transportation savior is more likely to be seen in tights and dance slippers, leaping across a stage at New York City’s prestigious Lincoln Center, than performing a random feat of heroism in his city’s subway system.
Nonetheless, American Ballet Theater dancer Gray Davis did just that: Over the weekend, he came to the rescue of a 58-year-old man who’d fallen onto the tracks at the 72nd Street Broadway-Seventh Avenue station.
Diana Vishneva's final performance with ABT is in "Onegin" on Friday, June 23:off topic, but I did not know that Tatiana was known outside the realm of skating, but I just saw this photo of Diana Vishneva with her [backstage at ABT] https://twitter.com/Hashioki1978/status/877176701880475649
We are heading to NYC this weekend and will be attending the ballet "Onegin" at the Met on Sat night, I'll try and remember to kept you know how it is.I'd love to hear reports about "Onegin" with Vishneva. I really wanted to fly to NYC for that, but did not manage.
In other ballet news, Lopatkina announced her retirement; Russian media says, due to injuries.
Thank you for the report.I saw the Vishneva-Gomes Monday night performance. I thought they killed it in Act III - so much drama and passion. If you are going Friday night, be sure to bring hankies; it will be emotional for sure. Am seeing Ferri-Bolle tomorrow night; it will be interesting to compare the two performances.
