With it's 75th Anniversary season underway, the American Ballet Theatre kicked off another year with a most impressive performance of "Othello." An internationally renowned company, it's been stated that it will lose three stars from its lineup at the end of this term: Paloma Herrera, Xioamara Reyes and Julie Kent. The three principal dancers, indeed, will have to bid a tearful goodbye after their final performances. Herrera and Reyes have already danced their last steps in Giselle on Wednesday while Kent will follow suit in Romeo and Juliet on June 20.
Continuity is the name of the game here. On YouTube, the quantity of ballet performances throughout history comes in droves. The ballet Giselle was searched by various writers at The New York Times and critiqued accordingly.
