MUSICAL MUSES at NYC Ballet

canada goose deals Saturday June 21, 2008 evening An all Balanchine evening with Wendy Whelan in MOZARTIANA sharing a programme with two of my personal favorites from the Balanchine catalog TOMBEAU DE COUPERIN and BAISER DE LA FEE provided more than enough reasons to attend tonight (as if I needed reasons!) even though it meant sitting thru LA SONNAMBULA at the end of the evening. Before the performance started I avoided telling him too many canada goose outlet usa of my own impressions of the ballets we were to see or of the dancers since I love hearing the totally un tainted opinions of people who haven yet formed prejudices. Reese was thoroughly captivated by the https://www.canadagoosepark.com ballets themselves and liked SONNAMULA far more than I do. canada goose deals

buy canada goose jacket cheap Casting her spell over the theatre from the moment the curtain rose on MOZARTIANA, Wendy Whelan immediately posed the eternal problem of writing about her: how do you describe perfection? What an atmosphere she created in canada goose jacket outlet toronto the Preghiera tonight. Maybe the highest compliment I can pay her is: she makes you see the music. Purity of musical expression is always Wendy signature, and its never been clearer canada goose coats uk or more beautiful than canada goose outlet official tonight. It takes a true prince of the dance to hold the stage with canada goose outlet new york city Wendy in this ballet and what an immaculate, elegant and again wonderfully musical performance Philip Neal canada goose outlet belgium gave. His partnering was so silky and refined. At the curtain calls, Wendy and Philip generously deflected the audience accolades to their colleague, Tom Gold, who was bidding farewell to NYC Ballet tonight. Over the years, Tom (Paul Kolink photo) has canada goose outlet hong kong endeared himself to audiences night after night with canada goose outlet las vegas his technically buoyant dancing aligned to his sprightly personality with its little dash of irony thrown in. He officially in May with a performance of Stroman DOUBLE FEATURE but sneaky Tom has popped up since then in THE CONCERT and canada goose outlet ottawa tonight we had a chance to see him canada goose uk site in one of his signature roles, dancing the Gigue in MOZARTIANA. His dancing certainly showed no sign that he be collecting Social Security any time soon: it was as light, precise and jubilant as ever. NYCB insiders knew what was happening; Tom came out for the bows and immediately went to the four demi girls (Saskia, Dena, Dara and Gwyneth) for some serious hugging. Then Wendy canada goose victoria parka outlet and Philip came out, skipping their own turn to bow and applauding Tom. Tom and Wendy had an enormous mutual embrace for themselves and both Wendy and Philip gave Tom a deep reverence when they all came before the curtain. Then Tom was called cheap canada goose jackets out alone and the audience had a chance to express their gratitude which he received with gallant grace. I hope Tom plans to do some more choreographing, since his colorful and dazzling MASADA at the Miller Theatre a couple years ago remains vividly in my mind. buy canada goose jacket cheap

canada goose clearance TOMBEAU DE COUPERIN thrives on its delightful Maurice Ravel score which Balanchine transformed into an unusual ballet in which the corps are the stars. Stepping out from the ranks, sixteen of NYC Ballet dancers show us the impeccably tailored steps Mr. B created in response to Ravel masterpiece. TOMBEAU is a treat. canada goose clearance

buy canada goose jacket The evening produced its third enchanting musical score with BAISER DE LA FEE. Megan canada goose outlet in montreal Fairchild and Joaquin de Luz (photo by Paul Kolnik) took the leading roles and Faye Arthurs and canada goose factory outlet Alina Dronova were canada goose outlet jackets the demis. With a corps of NYCB beauties, they gave us a performance lovingly danced canada goose outlet houston and rich in atmosphere. Joaquin solo was spellbinding in its phrasing and sense of mystery; Megan danced with clarity and spun off some brilliant turns along the diagonal. Together they imbued the final moments of the piece with an other worldly quality. I promised myself that I would not devote myself exclusively to watching Faye whenever she was onstage. But like many promises, this one was broken. buy canada goose jacket

canada goose store Maybe if you aren an opera fan you won be put off by canada goose parka outlet uk Vittorio Rieti horrible arrangements canada goose stockists uk of melodies from the bel canto masterpieces of Vincenzo Bellini. It always amazes me that Balanchine would have condoned such trashy adaptations, and every time I hear this music I want to get up and run out of the theatre. The ballet Balanchine created is as contrived as the music, at least up to the point that the title heroine appears. Amar Ramasar was the brooding Baron and Sara Mearns totally glamourous as the Coquette, her dancing lavish and lyrical. In the divertissement, Rachel Piskin, Lauren King, Troy Schumacher and Austin Laurent were a lively quartet and Ana Sophia Scheller and Vincent Paradiso looked exotic in the pas de deux. Daniel Ulbricht triumphed as Harlequin and climaxed his bravura solo by taking a diving leap into the wings. canada goose store

canadian goose jacket The absence of Darci Kistler brought us Yvonne Borree Sleepwalker opposite Sebastien Marcovici debut as the Poet. Sebastien certainly has the feeling of romantic intensity the role calls for; as his curiosity about the sleeping woman develops into an obsession, the kneeling Sebastien swoons into a deep backbend. Yvonne lightness as she skimmed the stage in bourrees had a ghostly feel; she was wistful and mysterious. Yvonne canada goose outlet reviews and Sebastien honed the timing ideally in those moments where the poet blocks the sleepwalker path. Despite my perpetual dislike for this ballet I have to say that Yvonne and Sebastien were very moving, thanks largely to Yvonne delicacy and vulnerability and Sebastien poetic response to her. Reese liked SONNAMBULA very much and was really taken with Yvonne performance. canadian goose jacket

Canada Goose Jackets During the intermission we had a chance to talk with Kristin Sloan who is continuing her filming of the repertoire for future projects; and also I finally met Deborah, a great NYCB enthusiast. My evening ended on the highest possible note as I was heading for the subway and met Miranda Weese. I wasn just being polite when I told her how much I miss her; then on the long train ride home I started flipping thru a mental picture book of all the images Miranda left us with when she headed West to join Pacific Northwest Ballet. In the Paul Kolnik photo, Miranda and Seth Orza in Christopher Wheeldon EVENFALL one of the most memorable of all Miranda canada goose kensington parka uk roles canada goose outlet in vancouver at New York City Ballet. I was so glad to have seen her again and to have a chance to express awkwardly, as usual my admiration. Canada Goose Jackets

Canada Goose Outlet I was so thrilled to finally meet you! Canada Goose Outlet

Canada Goose sale Thank you for introducing me to your friend too (and my, my, isn Reese handsome and hunky! Not that you aren of course lucky Wei!). Your review was perfect (as always). I was so pleased that Yvonne did so well she was canada goose outlet in new york once one of my favorite dancers before nerves seem to get to her. Plus she so pretty! She was exceptional in yesterday afternoon program as well. But for me (as you know) it all about Wendy!! But how gorgeous was Philip with her (he just keeps getting better if that even possible)? Terrific, truly! And it so great to see Sebastien dancing again. I actually like La Somn. but couldn image anyone else doing Nicolaj part. Canada Goose sale

cheap Canada Goose However, Sebestien was excellent! And good for Yvonne for being able to hold him in her arms (she so delicate and light)! Also, Joaquin has just being wonderful this season. He was great yesterday afternoon too. cheap Canada Goose

Canada Goose Parka between Damian retirement and Tom I wanted to mention how especially stunning Rachel Rutherford was yesterday afternoon in Dances With a Gatherning.
