MARCELO GOMES TO DANCE WITH MORPHOSES THIS WEEKEND

Breaking news! SLSG absolute favorite will perform with Christopher Wheeldon’s Morphoses this weekend on Central Park’s SummerStage. I blogged about the performances earlier today but this of course makes attendance ALL THE MORE COMPELLING. So to repeat: Friday and Saturday evenings, Rumsey Playfield (69th and 5th Ave.), 8 pm. But get there early; collaborator Martha Wainwright’s expected to bring a slew of fans with her, which, when combined with Wheeldon fans, are going to completely overflow the house, or field.

See Oberon for a review of today’s rehearsal.

P.S.: who’s watching David Parsons’s Remember Me right now (8:15 p.m., as I’m writing) on channel 21? Coming across pretty well on TV.

  1. That's really a special treat to know Marcelo Gomes will be joining Morphoses for their Central Park engagements. I am so used Marcelo casted in classical roles that it will be interesting to see him dance a more contemporary style. He's such perfection to the balletomane's eye. I'm so jealous for those who will be in attendance.

    Hehehe, thanks for seeing my tweets, Anne :) Yes, I sat next to Craig (and Marcelo's boyfriend) — we chatted with them throughout the evening. Such incredibly nice guys! I definitely will write about that (and the show too)!
