I must confess I haven’t yet read Jennifer Homans’ acclaimed but controversial history of ballet, Apollo’s Angels. I’m working hard on my second novel and have been knee deep in prison and cop memoirs and haven’t had time for much … Continue reading
Instead of trying to remember which were my favorite performances of the year, I’m just going back through my blog archives from January of this year and linking to the most memorable posts. More fun that way! A lot happened … Continue reading

Haha, I don’t even think this book has been optioned yet for film! It should be though – it’s very cinematic. All throughout reading it, I kept “seeing” Romeo – and always as one of my favorite male dancers who’s … Continue reading
Here’s an interview with Roberto Bolle backstage at Dolce & Gabbana’s 20th anniversary show in June. He talks about ballet and fashion, saying both have to do with the aesthetics of the body and movement, and that fashion is very … Continue reading
Roberto Bolle and Friends are performing July 27th at the Piazza San Marco in Venice, as part of a gala to benefit the National Trust for Italy. The way the Italians talk about him, he must be so beloved there. … Continue reading
So Saturday was another double feature for me, as for many ABT fans. And it was a fun double-header with the Russian women – the Bolshoi versus the Kirov, if you will – kind of going at each other … Continue reading

Where Roberto Bolle is appearing naked in Mats Ek’s Giselle. Seriously, from what I’ve read, Ek’s version of the ballet looks really interesting: it’s moved up to contemporary times and is set in a mental hospital. Photo taken from OperaChic.

Oh no. Roberto Bolle has had to cancel a couple performances in Europe, including a “naked debut” in the esteemed Opera Chic’s words, due to a slight injury that required minor surgery. Speedy recovery, Mr. Bolle. Speaking of said naked … Continue reading
Sorry I’ve been so out of it again with blogging, you guys — I can’t believe how many little errors there are in my book to correct… So stressful! Anyway, I managed to watch DWTS last night. Thing is, I’m … Continue reading
I have been called a “bad Marcelo fan” for continuously chatting about Roberto Bolle, as I did, for ex., in the last post (I don’t think any current dancer promotes himself quite as much as Roberto, and he promotes ballet … Continue reading
Went to my local bookstore last night and couldn’t find it, but apparently it’s now available for sale in online (European) bookstores at least. In addition to original writing by Weber and Bolle, it includes text by D.H. Lawrence, and … Continue reading
Roberto Bolle (photo from here) is mentioned in a So You Think You Can Dance review in Entertainment Weekly. Kate Ward is a smart writer I agree with practically everything she says in that write-up. I watched this week’s show … Continue reading

Photo by Rosalie O’Connor, for ABT, of Craig Salstein acting as angel between a warring Ethan Stiefel (airborne) and Herman Cornejo (crouching) in Tharp’s Rabbit and Rogue. So last night I went to Christopher Wheeldon’s Morphoses at Central Park’s SummerStage, … Continue reading
