            Shanghai Ballet – Swan Lake – New York

            ★★★★   It’s comforting to know that at even my advanced age I can still be confounded even by hoary old Swan Lake.

            Megan Fairchild and NYCB in Ratmansky’s Voices.(c) Erin Baiano. (Click image for larger version)

            New York City Ballet – Voices (new Ratmansky), and New Combinations bill – New York

            ★★★★   There was always something new around the corner, a surprising shape, a witty step, an unlikely transition. It’s clear that Ratmansky felt liberated by the unusual structure and soundscape…

            Francesco Gabriele Frola in Le Corsaire.(c) Laurent Liotardo. (Click image for larger version)

            English National Ballet – Le Corsaire – London

            ★★★★   It’s not the kind of work that will persuade anyone that ballet can be a subtle, nuanced and poetic art, but it is cracking entertainment and a treat in a dreary month.

            Some Memorable Performances of 2019 – New York

            I don’t really believe in lists, but it’s admittedly fun to look back over the year and reflect on moments that have stayed with me. So here they are, in no particular order…

            Bethany Kingsley-Garner in The Snow Queen.(c) Andy Ross. (Click image for larger version)

            Scottish Ballet – The Snow Queen – Edinburgh

            ★★★★   Hampson has created a naturalistic and, above all, a graceful and harmonious set of steps. It’s all so unforced, but it feels right and creates a beautifully rounded and satisfying production.

            Royal Ballet – Coppélia – London

            ★★★★   The dancing is so enjoyable, the comedy so appealing, that any flaws in the story telling are easily overlooked.

            Momoko Hirata, Cesar Morales and Marion Tait in Giselle.(c) Bill Cooper. (Click image for larger version)

            Birmingham Royal Ballet – Giselle – London

            ★★★★   …exemplary performances from Momoko Hirata as Giselle and César Morales as Albrecht make for a richly rewarding and moving experience.

            Sarah Lamb in Raymonda Act III.(c) Foteini Christofilopoulou, courtesy the Royal Opera House. (Click image for larger version)

            Royal Ballet – Concerto, Enigma Variations, Raymonda Act III – London

            ★★★★   It is all too easy to assume that the first triple bill of the Royal Ballet’s autumn season celebrates its creative heritage from the 1960s. In fact, two of the ballets were made for other companies…

            Mariinsky Ballet in Paquita.(c) Darian Volkova. (Click image for larger version)

            Mariinsky Ballet – Paquita – Washington

            ★★★   This three-act three-hour-long Paquita is a brainchild of Smekalov, who is a second soloist with the company. He wrote his own libretto, largely borrowing from the Cervantes novella La Gitanilla…

            Sara Mearns and Daniel Ulbricht in George Balanchine’s Variations Pour Une Porte et Un Soupir.(c) Erin Baiano. (Click image for larger version)

            New York City Ballet – Balanchine + Wheeldon bill & Jewels – New York

            ★★★★   It makes a noticeable difference when Litton, music director of the company, is in the pit; the orchestra has presence and sings, providing a convincing counterpart for the dancing.

            Olga Smirnova and Semyon Chudin in Swan Lake.(c) Foteini Christofilopoulou. (Click image for larger version)

            Bolshoi Ballet – Swan Lake – London

            ★★★   A 3 star production with 4 star performances…

            The Royal Ballet School in Goyo Montero's Pulse.(c) Tristram Kenton. (Click image for larger version)

            Royal Ballet School – Holland Park bill (mainly Upper School) – London

            ★★★★   The show overall gave us a good slice of what ballet is in 2019, and just how adaptable the students need to be these days – exciting times for them and exciting for us in the audience as well.

            Isabella Boylston in The Sleeping Beauty.(c) John Grigaitis. (Click image for larger version)

            American Ballet Theatre – The Sleeping Beauty – New York

            ★★★★   This production proposes that Sleeping Beauty is not really the story of a love quest – as it’s often depicted – but rather a fable about order and disorder, harmony and disharmony, the balance between good and evil.

            Igor Tsvirko in Spartacus.(c) Darren Thomas. (Click image for larger version)

            Bolshoi Ballet – Spartacus – Brisbane

            ★★★★   the man of the moment on opening night was Igor Tsvirko as Spartacus whose stamina, elevation, turns, partnering, and fouettés were staggering in their execution.

            Devon Teuscher in Le Corsaire.(c) Gene Schiavone. (Click image for larger version)

            American Ballet Theatre – Le Corsaire – New York

            ★★★★   Days after the performance, I cannot get James Whiteside’s Ali out of my head. Devon Teuscher’s Medora is charming and warm, pulling off triple fouettées turns and her Italian fouettées with aplomb…

            Sarah Lane and Carlos Gonzalez in Harlequinade.(c) Doug Gifford. (Click image for larger version)

            American Ballet Theatre – Harlequinade – New York

            ★★★★★   To my eye, this Harlequinade may be the most well-rounded of Ratmansky’s historically-minded stagings of Petipa.

            Russian Ballet Icons Gala 2019 Gala group photo.(c) Jack Devant. (Click image for larger version)

            Russian Ballet Icons Gala 2019 – London

            ★★★   The annual Ballet Icons gala, now in its 14th year, aims to promote Russian culture while providing a Sunday evening’s entertainment for Russians in London and ballet-lovers…

            Marcelo Gomes & The Sarasota Ballet in Sir Frederick Ashton's Apparitions.(c) Frank Atura. (Click image for larger version)

            Sarasota Ballet – Apparitions, Stars and Stripes – Sarasota

            ★★★★   As if an Ashton rarity weren’t reason enough to catch this program, there was also the presence of Marcelo Gomes, former much-admired principal dancer from American Ballet Theatre, to recommend it.

            Washington Ballet in the The Sleeping Beauty.(c) XMB Photography. (Click image for larger version)

            Washington Ballet – The Sleeping Beauty – Washington

            ★★★★   When Kent took the helm of Washington Ballet …one of her goals was to raise the standard of classical technique and shape the company into a world-class ballet institution. Judging by this production, she is on the right track.

            Joshua Hariette and Monique Jonas in Brahms Hungarian.(c) Chris Nash. (Click image for larger version)

            Richard Alston Dance 青海福彩app官方下载 – Detour, Quartermark, Proverb, Brahms Hungarian – London

            ★★★★ Alston’s choreography is formal in that it has structure, style and steps, instead of resorting to running in circles. Its partnering etiquette is courteous rather than abusive.
