Ratmansky's Seasons the highlight of a mixed ABT program

A mixed evening at the Koch Theater, with ABT shining in Ratmansky and a new Twyla Tharp creation, but struggling in Balanchine.

Radiant cast almost awakens Ratmansky's Sleeping Beauty

Cassandra Trenary in The Sleeping Beauty © John Grigaitis
If the audience response was not very enthusiastic, it's because Ratmansky's Sleeping Beauty four years after its premiere still comes across as more of a museum piece than a living, breathing ballet. This is a Beauty that never really wakes up.

Perhaps ABT's disclaimer in the program notes should have simply said: "When you watch Le Corsaire, prepare to be both offended and entertained. We hope you'll be more entertained than offended."

Devon Teuscher and James Whiteside © Gene Schiavone
If you love Jane Eyre, stick to the novel. There's more female empowerment in those pages than in Cathy Marston's choreography.
