I'd also love to see bostons misa kuranaga~ i've become quite taken with her in all the vail videos w/ herman :)
& of course would love to see yuriko/ jared SL.

I forgot about Joe Gatti. Would like to see him as well but not in Jorma Elo.

Yes, i looove joe gatti! but have to agree on jorma elo i'm afraid :/

Jorma Elo is the worst!

Boston Ballet also has Lorna Feijoo who is lovely.

They'll probably bring a whole evening of Jorma Elo for us.

Haglund,

You mentioned the Boston Ballet "Star" who abandoned them for ABT..... (and J. Gorak is still in the Corps)....did you see that "Stars`" video on Youtube?

I'm not sure to which video you refer.


Haglund,

Youtube :Welcome To My Closet .......

Yes, Fred, I've seen that.

Whiteside goes well beyond being flamboyant, however. He runs a second career as a video and cabaret entertainer that is not child-proof or youth-proof. Flamboyant is fine. Dressing up as clownish caricature of a whore-ish woman who has black-ethnically stylized lips or wrapping what looks to be barbed wire around a suffering body for a titillating drama on a bathroom floor goes beyond responsible behavior for an ABT professional, in my opinion.

Whiteside's attention-seeking, outlandish sexually provocative behavior, and his need to draw others into situations where he can be the center of attention really suggests a disorder. Another personnel mistake by ABT.


Haglund,

Agreed ......I never thought anyone had the guts to write that !!!!!

Let me just state that I , and many others appreciate your blog , and the freedom you allow to express one`s opinions - unlike "Ballet Alert" ...where PC and censorship is the order of the day .

Thanks, Fred. Now and then I have to put my foot down, but not often.

Jared & Yuriko are beautiful dancers and wonderful people and should be given the opportunity to dance all of the lead roles with ABT, especially the classics.

Jared looks like a Prince and Yuriko is beautiful too.

So true, so true. Yuriko's arms in Swan Lake would be heavenly.

Let's hope that on Saturday night, some wonderful person illegally films Jared & Yuriko in the Black Swan PdD in Jackson and posts it on YouTube.
