…on the walls of the Koch Theatre, at Orchestra Level, as part of the Stravinsky Balanchine focus this fall.
I was particularly struck by both (both are by Paul Kolnik). In the first, an impossibly young Tiler Peck is the embodiment of joy in Balanchine’s Scherzo à la Russe, a bijou of a ballet created for the 1972 Stravinsky Festival.
The second is an image from Rubies, danced by Sterling Hyltin and Gonzalo García. I’ve always admired Hyltin’s femininity and her ability to give herself to her partners with a kind of voluptuous abandon. In this photo, Kolnik captures that perfectly.
