For this gorgeous picture of Janie Taylor (one of my favorite ballerinas in the world right now) in one of my favorite ballets (Balanchine’s La Valse)! Sorry, I just logged on to the Times Dance Section and this picture just stole my breath; couldn’t resist borrowing it! Here is Sir Alastair’s review, by the way.
I didn’t go to opening night on Tuesday night (was at Stephen Petronio with a friend instead), but will most definitely be at NYCB this weekend. Thanks to Mr. Kolnik I really can’t wait now. Summer ballet season has officially begun — bliss bliss bliss!
