It just seems to me, that if I was interviewing one of those 'powers that be' - that's the first question (well, ok - maybe the second question) that I would ask.<P>Silly me.

I wonder if the NYCB management has seen the Kirov Ballet's sublime performances in Balanchine's "Jewels" in New York earlier this month. They should be ashamed of their neglect of their Balanchine heritage. They should concentrate their resources on maintaining their Balanchine repertory instead of on the creation of endless disposable works in the Diamond Projects.<p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited July 31, 2002).]

I couldn't agree more Kevin.

The glory of NYCB faded when Balanchine died. The company under Martins is jaded, too-hip, and cruising on the reputation that was created by others in the past. Martins was a great dancer, but it will be interesting to see what happens when he gives up control to someone with a fresh vision. I don't know exactly what that vision would be, but I hope it results in a Balanchine renaissance. Of course that's just my opinion--I could be wrong.

Liscarkat - your sentiments are echoed in an interview that CriticalDance did with Jillana, retired Principal Dancer, NYCB.

I don't know if you saw that interview - but here it is:

Yes, thanks Basheva. Jillana hit it right on the head--and she should know. I think two key items she touched on are that she and others like her are not asked back to help with ballets, and that many present company members consider themselves above correction in class.
