ERICA PEREIRA PROMOTED TO SOLOIST AT NYCB

I’m a little late on this news, but for NYers who haven’t heard, Erica Pereira was recently promoted from corps member to soloist at New York City Ballet. I first noticed her in 2006 when she was the youngest Juliet cast in Peter Martins’ Romeo + Juliet (she was still then only an apprentice with the company). I knew how special she was then, and so I think this promotion is very well deserved.

Getting so excited for NYCB’s Winter season to begin! Nutcracker shows through Sunday, January 3rd, then the regular season begins the following Tuesday, January 5th, when the new Peter Martins will show, along with Balanchine’s Who Cares?

Ballet preceded by cadillac margaritas and duck tortilla pie at Rosa Mexicano, then followed with Ed’s Chowder House martinis and scallop ravioli:) Or maybe Honoo & green tea martinis at the A-Rod / Wallace Shawn bar… Ballet season: yum!

  1. Hmmm…duck tortilla pie sounds yummy! Can't wait for 1/4. Hope you had a great Xmas & wishing you the best in the new year.

  2. Oh yea, and congrats to Erica. She is a very special dancer so I was surprised when she wasn't included in the last batch of promotions.

  3. And speaking of the winter season—and new soloists—Katie Morgan is making her soloist debut in Who Cares? on opening night, January 5th. (Sort of ironic, right? Who Cares… I do!)

  4. Aw, bummer: It looks like KM is still ailing a bit and has been bumped from Who Cares? Ah well, the season is just starting…
