The swan maidens returned to the Metropolitan Opera House this week, in American Ballet Theater’s somewhat shopworn production of Swan Lake. (Some of those costumes need sprucing up!). Despite everything, it’s always fascinating to see each new interpretation of the central role(s) of Odette and Odile. And also to see how interpretations grow or change over time. This week, I caught Isabella Boylston, with a new partner, Alban Lendorf. The performance felt like a breakthrough. And also Devon Teuscher, a soloist who was taking on the ballet for only the second time. Her interpretation seems already somehow fully formed. My review of both casts for DanceTabs is here.

Below, a pic I snapped at the curtain calls, of Teuscher and her partner Alexandre Hammoudi.
