A Night of Balanchine, Pure and Simple

By JENNIFER DUNNING
The New York Times

The New York City Ballet will open "Balanchine 100: The Centennial Celebration," its ambitious two-season tribute to George Balanchine, on a decidedly quiet note on Tuesday at the New York State Theater. The three ballets that will be performed — "Serenade," "Bugaku" and "Symphony in C" — are pretty much standard repertory. Business as usual, but Balanchine's business was of a high order.

PBS' Live from Lincoln Center series will present "New York City Ballet and all of Lincoln Center celebrate George Balanchine’s 100th Birthday" on Wednesday, May 5, 2004 at 8 p.m. Found this info on the Live from Lincoln Center web site.

Hooray! Balanchine on TV...I wonder what they will present, and if it will be snippets or full ballets - and if Los Angeles's PBS affiliate will end up showing it at 2 in the morning again...

Celebrating Balanchine, From Kinky to Classic

By ANNA KISSELGOFF
The New York Times

The New York City Ballet opened its season on Tuesday night with a low-key prelude to a high-octane celebration that begins in earnest in January.

The three ballets by George Balanchine on the program were familiar: two signature company works, "Serenade" and "Symphony in C," and the stylized "Bugaku," with Balanchine at his kinkiest and most experimental.

...

Centenaries come and go, but celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of George Balanchine (Jan. 22, 1904) is not like an anniversary tribute to Bach (although Balanchine is certainly the Bach of choreographers).

Bach lives on through his music just as Balanchine and Frederick Ashton, also born in 1904, live on through their choreography as two of the greatest choreographers in the history of ballet.

Yearlong Tribute to Balanchine Kicks Off

By JOCELYN NOVECK
The Associated Press

When the dancing ended, the undisputed star of the New York City Ballet took the stage for the night's biggest ovation.

It wasn't a dancer at all, but the late George Balanchine, one of the 20th century's great artistic minds, descending from the rafters Tuesday evening in a giant black-and-white photograph. The elegant tableau showed him in perhaps his most comfortable pose: teaching in class.

Balanchine 100 New York City Ballet New York
By Hilary Ostlere for The FT


In an auspicious opening of the year-long Balanchine Centennial Celebration, New York City Ballet presented three of his classics: Serenade,Bugaku and Symphony In C - a surefire selection for a special evening. Diverse as these ballets are, they are all benchmarks of a kind in Balanchine's career and the development of his company.

Note: It looks as though a Sub-Editor's pen has wreaked havoc with the section of this review dealing with "Bugaku".

New York celebrates George Balanchine centennial

AFP

NEW YORK (AFP) - January 22, 2004 marks the centennial of the birth of George Balanchine, and New York is celebrating the heritage of the man who introduced and developed ballet in the United States.

...

"He was so ahead of his time, he broke away from the old fashion, he asked us to dance faster, to jump higher, he took away the big heavy costumes, he pushed the body to the limits," says the young Texan, a member of New York City Ballet since age 13.

Greeeings!
A roster update...Deanna McBrearty has very recently departed from the company, and her name is now been taken off of the website. Good luck to Deanna in her future endeavours!

All Hail the Chief

By DEBORAH JOWITT
The Village Voice

By the time you read this, the New York City Ballet will be in the throes of its Nutcracker, but the program that kicked off the company's "Balanchine 100: The Centennial Celebration" promises the wealth to come throughout the centennial of George Balanchine's birth. It began with Serenade, the first ballet Balanchine made in America, and ended with Symphony in C, which opened the company's 1948 debut season under its new name at City Center. Between these masterpieces came the sole centennial performance of Bugaku (1963), a sort of sexy amuse-bouche for opening-night gala patrons.

Balanchine: Still the Radical in Classical Garb

By ANNA KISSELGOFF
The New York Times
January 2, 2004

I DON'T want my ballets laughed at 50 years from now." So said George Balanchine when I asked him if he wanted his works to survive him.

What did he mean? That over time ballets are distorted or modified by dancers and choreographers when their creators are gone? Yes, but more certainly he meant that tastes change, that dancing changes and that since he choreographed for his time, even if his ballets were preserved in amber, they would not speak to another age.

Kyra Nichols Keeps Balanchine in the Air

By GIA KOURLAS
The New York Times
January 4, 2004

Kyra Nichols is 45. No, it's not exactly young for a ballerina. But for those who didn't experience the prime of George Balanchine and his New York City Ballet, Ms. Nichols — with her luminous phrasing, regal presence and generous free spirit — makes everything O.K. Though she is a mother of two, it is difficult to imagine she ever danced better than she does now.

Wow!!!
Now the season is really getting interesting...next week's casting is full exciting debuts.

**Ansanelli, Taylor and Bouder will be making their debuts together in Apollo, with none other than Peter Boal.
Then we get Hubbe, with Kistler, and both Sylve & Weese making their debuts.

**Joaquin De Luz will be debuting as Oberon, which is not a huge surprise. Also, Taylor & Marcovici in the Act II divertissement.

**And finally, a whole new cast in Harlequinade. And it's one fine cast.... Ansanelli, Millepied, Sylve, De Luz, Fairchild, Bouder !!! Hubbe, Edge, Borree and Tinsley also will be debuting in a later cast.

**Also, Carmena & Bouder will be doing Flower Festival in Genzano. I wonder it they have (or will) received any coaching from the Danes while they are in town. Thomas Lund is one of the Bournonville coaches for the RDB, so working with him would be a great experience.
