In a two day stop in New York City I was able to see this afternoon of very fine dancing.


Saturday , January 23


"Agon" (Balanchine, Stravinsky)

"The Lady With The Little Dog" (Miroshnichenko, Shchedrin)

"Cortege Hongrois" (Balanchine, Glazounov)


Several dancers stand out in my mind for the excellence of their performances.


Maria Kowroski -- "Cortege Hongrois"

She was in her 'Goddess Mode' !

This is the first time that I've seen her in a tutu ballet dress. She danced like a Dream ! She also flipped her leg back a couple times in such a way as to remind us that she can hold her own in the celestial gymnastics department with the best of them.


Sterling Hyltin -- "The Lady With The Little Dog".

She did an outstanding job balancing the highly demanding athletic demands of this work with a mesmerizing sense of poetry.

Her partner, Andrew Veyette, has to be greatly commended for his ability to help get her through such moves as an impossible looking, rapid cartwheel lift while he was in an off center kneeling position.


Wendy Whelan -- "Agon".

She as usual showed us her exalted level of refined and expressive artistry. She did a few moves of exceptional flowing agility for which she is perhaps unequaled in being able to accomplish with a dreamlike sense of transcendence.


Teresa Reichlen -- "Agon".

A Delightfully Vibrant, Commanding Presence and Masterful Dancing.

She complimented Whendy Whelan very well. For a six foot tall lady, she gave a remarkable gracefully agile performance. It's the best that I've ever seen her dance !


Having just seen a great series of performances from another Balanchine based company, The Miami City Ballet, it was interesting to make a comparison. Both companies have very fine qualities. I would say at this time that the Miami City Ballet is more defined by its Freshness and its Highlighting. The New York City Ballet is more defined by the Solidity of its High Quality Dancing.
