Had a wonderful time tonight at New York City Ballet Here/Now Festival featuring works by Christopher Wheeldon. Thrilled to see many of my favorite dancers on stage.
My favorite piece goes to American Rhapsody. Set to the music of George Gershwin, the choreography reminds me of An American in Paris: a love story filled with playful moments, cheerful music, and non-stop movements that make everything feel larger than life.
Unity Phelan was absolutely amazing in the lead role in American Rhapsody. Also loved her duets in Polyphonia especially the 9th piano piece. How is Unity only a soloist?????
Tiler Peck was incredible in Mercurial Manoeuvres with so much control, so much speed, and yet perfect stillness when the music demands it. So beautiful.
