The second coming of… (plus–added Wednesday–the farewells of…)

She’s a version of Nureyev. Or something like. Or would be in another era.
Anyway, my essayette for New York magazine on peripatetic Kirov/ABT star Diana Vishneva, who’s having a real season here in New York this year.
And, here, my review for Newsday of Christopher Wheeldon’s final dance as resident choreographer for New York City Ballet, “Rococo Variaitions,” and Nikolaj Hubbe’s moving farewell. (An oddly muted review: I must have been trying [too] hard not to sound soppy and weepy, plus stuff two endings into 450 words. Will miss Wheeldon’s opportunity to make ballets with a sizable corps, like “Evenfall” or “Carousel.” And will miss Hubbe. A lot. Who will fill his shoes as the Poet in “La Somnambula,” for example? Who, who?)
