NYCB Vol. 3 No. 19 - Scherzo Fantastique

This season, Justin Peck’s Scherzo Fantastique is on stage, but 50 years ago Robbins choreographed to the same Stravinsky score. I thought these long exposure photos of Gelsey Kirkland in this ballet were so mesmerizing, I had to post them! The ballet was described as having a “glistening radiance”. I wish I could have seen it.
