This is a chronological listing—a very, very short one—of the dance performances Andrew and I attended in the last twelve months.
Dance performances worth attending last season were few and far between—never before had Andrew and I attended so few dance performances—and the upcoming season in the Twin Cities promises no better.
New York City Ballet
Polyphonia [Christopher Wheeldon/György Ligeti]
Duo Concertant [George Balanchine/Igor Stravinsky]
Herman Schmerman Pas de Deux [William Forsythe/Thom Willems]
Zakouski [Peter Martins/Various]
Hallelujah Junction [Peter Martins/John Adams]
Son of Chamber Symphony [Stanton Welch/John Adams]
In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated [William Forsythe/Thom Willems]
The Rite Of Spring [Vaslav Nijinsky/Igor Stravinsky]
The Cowles Center
Botanica [Moses Pendleton/Various]
Our primary bout of ballet-going for last season, planned for October, had to be cancelled owing to Andrew’s influenza. We had tickets for three performances at New York City Ballet—six Balanchine/Stravinsky masterworks alone—and we had to give the tickets to friends.
I last updated this list on June 30, 2012.
