The NY Times

There were many cheers and a few fond tears when Jock Soto, a member of the New York City Ballet for 25 years and a principal dancer with it since 1985, gave his official farewell performance with the troupe on Sunday afternoon at the New York State Theater.

The program's five works, each by a different choreographer, emphasized his versatility and stamina, for he danced in fine form in every offering.

NYCB opens 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' on Midsummers Night.

Star-Crossed Lovers, Scrambled and Unscrambled

In New York City, summer cannot really officially begin without two events. One is the Coney Island Mermaid Parade, in which an assortment of loony sea creatures, ruled by King Neptune and Queen Mermaid, descends upon the Brooklyn boardwalk. But the other one offers a more magical adventure. In George Balanchine's indelible "Midsummer Night's Dream," Titania and Oberon, Queen and King of the Fairies, inhabit a beautiful world where butterflies frolic with fairies, and mortals and immortals try to make sense of love.

The two-act work, performed by New York City Ballet on Tuesday night at the New York State Theater, dates to 1962, but Balanchine must be sprinkling fairy dust from afar. No matter how fragile the cast, "Midsummer," set to shimmering music by Felix Mendelssohn, is somehow indestructible. The first act is primarily devoted to unraveling Shakespeare's screwball plot.

Antonio Carmena, still in the corps, will be making his debut as Oberon on Friday. It's also Sofiane Sylve's debut as Titania - casting truely in the spirit of the mismatched nature of the roles.

Carmena replaces Benjamin Millpied - I hope he's not hurt or sick.
