Ballet San Jose review: New leader, radiance
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
What may have been the starriest collection of ballet dancers assembled on a Bay Area stage in this century welcomed their colleague José Manuel Carreño to Ballet San Jose on Saturday evening at the Center for the Performing Arts. The career of the famed Cuban dancer and now company artistic director in some way inspired the program's 12 numbers, only a couple of which gave observers any clue as to what the troupe will look like after the high-priced talent has flown away. New Ballet San Jose School Principal Dalia Rawson assembled well over 100 students from all grade levels to glory in their burgeoning skills, accompanied by selections from Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" score. New York City Ballet's Rebecca Krohn and Ask la Cour (the son of the San Jose school's former principal) brought a measure of intensity, if imperfect teamwork, to the austerely elongated duet from Christopher Wheeldon's "After the Rain" duet. The same institution sent us Ana Sophia Scheller and Gonzalo Garcia ...

American Ballet Theatre in Darkness and Light: <em>Sylphides</em>, <em>Moor's Pavane</em> and <em>Gong</em>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Cory Stearns and Veronika Part of American Ballet Theatre plotting evil in José Limón's The Moor's Pavane (Photo: Gene Schiavone, courtesy American Ballet Theatre) Ballet to the People has been going to the ballet since she was a toddler, in cities from Manila to Miami and Milan, but to her, one of the great pleasures of going to see ballet in a dance capital like New York is that she is likely to be seated next to a true veteran who starts conversations with "I saw José Limón dance the Moor." It was a good thing that American Ballet Theatre fielded Roman Zhurbin in the role on Wednesday evening ("Limón would have approved," the gentleman connoisseur conceded.) A standout on ABT's deep bench of dancer-actor talent, Zhurbin tore up the stage as Othello, the jealous, then conscience-stricken, Moor with an anger management problem. Manipulated by a coolly frightening Cory Stearns in the role of Iago, with help from a conniving, seductive Veronika Part as Emilia, Zhurbin transfixed ...

Risa Gary Kaplowitz: Changing the Field of Dreams: How America and England Can Cultivate More Homegrown Ballerinas
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Dancer: Jillian Davis, Photographer: Michael Kendrick Last month, New York Times dance critic, Alastair Macaulay, wrote an article on the dearth of American ballerinas. Some dancers felt that his ruminations were unfounded and the article caused an uproar on many of their Facebook feeds and blogs. But, a few weeks later, from across the pond, came an article featuring Carlos Acosta, Royal Ballet's principal guest artist and his feelings about the lack of British ballerinas. Since this article was written by one of their own, dancers did more head scratching than head banging when they read it. In the article, Mr. Acosta says, "If you don't have talent in your own backyard, you must go and find it." Certainly it appears that many companies in the United States and England are already doing so. For example, at American Ballet Theatre, christened in 2006 as "America's National Ballet Company", only two of its ten female principal dancers are American. The others are Sout ...

Carla Escoda: American Ballet Theatre Bows Out in Los Angeles With Le Corsaire
Huffington Post - over 3 years
American Ballet Theatre gets a brand new pirate ship for Le Corsaire. (Photo: Gene Schiavone) American Ballet Theatre has lavished time and money on new sets and costumes for Le Corsaire. Which is rather like redecorating the staterooms on the Titanic. Granted, it would take a sweeping overhaul of this storyline about pirates, slave girls and lascivious potentates in a Muslim kingdom to rid it of its more egregious racial, gender and cultural insensitivities. And it would have been no small feat to slash the trite fairground score -- a wearying mishmash of Adam, Pugni, Delibes, Drigo and Oldenbourg -- in order to tuck in more compelling music. Barring a complete face-lift, however, ABT should have deep-sixed the ballet and polished some other more deserving 19th century gem. Not that political correctness in and of itself is a goal. Like other great art forms, ballet reflects the prejudices of its time and, in the hands of sensitive curators, becomes an intriguing ...

The Rock Star Of The Ballet World Says Goodbye
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK -- There are often cheers and shouts of "Bravo!" in the New York ballet audience. But screams? As in, adoring fans at a rock concert? Not often. To some dance fans, though, Ethan Stiefel, the blond, athletic, longtime principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre, fit the rock-star bill nicely over his long career. A natural for the classics, with a beautiful and pure line to his dancing, he was able to play a perfect Siegfried in "Swan Lake" and then leap effortlessly into some edgier Twyla Tharp. (And yes, he also played the dishy Cooper Neilson in the silly-but-fun 2000 dance movie "Center Stage.") So there were indeed genuine screams from high up in the rafters on closing night of ABT's spring season at the Metropolitan Opera House this past weekend. Stiefel, now 39, was saying farewell to ABT with a final performance as Ali the Slave in the campy "Le Corsaire," a 19th-century ballet full of slave girls and pirates and a pasha with a big belly. And d ...
