Be still my heart! IVAN NAGY is back in Manhattan rehearsing Gelsey Kirkland's students in the Swan Lake PdD. Ivan Nagy.
NO DOUBT Natalia Makarova and Cynthia Gregory are trying to squeeze back into their white tutus for one more chance to have Ivan Nagy wrap those delicious arms around them! OMG Ivan Nagy is back. Haglund is going bananas. BA-NA-NAS!
He quit too soon. He disappeared. Ballet let him slip away. Haglund has wondered aloud on this blog how ABT could have lost an artistic connection with someone as important as Ivan Nagy. Now Gelsey has brought him back to ballet and to her students and to us.
It's settled. We all will go to Gelsey's Academy performance on Friday, May 25th at Symphony Space. Here's the link to order tickets. AS A BONUS, you will be treated to the mighty Herman Cornejo dancing James' variations from La Sylphide. Yes, the MIGHTY CORNEJO will be dancing, too!
Gelsey has rehearsal pictures of Ivan Nagy with her students on her website. Haglund lifted one here, but go to the site to see them. Oh, God, Ivan Nagy is back.
