Whipped Cream by American Ballet Theatre.
I missed Whipped Cream last year, and was glad to finally catch the production this year. My favorite part of the night, though, came during the curtain bow. Catherine Hurlin was just promoted to a soloist over the weekend. Tonight was her first performance since the announcement. You could literally see the glee coming out of her, as she dances joyfully on stage during the bow. Congratulations!!!

Love Isabella Boylston as Kitri, and Catherine Hurlin and Cassie Trenary as the Flower Girls!

Misty Copeland reprised her role as the Firebird, when the show first opened last season. I also loved Cassie Trenary‘s wonderful dancing and gorgeous expressions as the Maiden.
We were also treated to AfterRite by Wayne McGregor. This is the third choreography that I saw within the past year, set to the dramatic music “The Rite of Spring” by Igor Stravinsky. The other two were Pina Bausch’s and Martha Graham’s creations. It was interesting to see a different interpretation of the music.

One of the most beautiful Giselle I’ve seen so far. Hee Seo dramatically captured Giselle’s sorrows and madness. The chemistry between Hee Seo and Roberto Bolle, as Count Albrecht, was wonderful and conveyed the depth of their love for each other.

Opening night of the ABT Met Opera season. Loved the beautiful dancing by Hee Seo in Giselle.
