Farrell Fan Posted December 30, 2002 Report Share Posted December 30, 2002 The January 6 New Yorker has an epiphany indeed -- an article by Joan Acocella titled "Second Act -- Suzanne Farrell returns with a company of her own." There is a photo of the young Suzanne in "Don Quixote" which has had me palpitating since I opened the magazine. Inevitably, much of the piece is about Balanchine. Acocella reveals that in 2005 Suzanne "hopes to stage the three-act Don Quixote. She also posits an interesting distinction between Balanchine and Peter Martins: "Where Balanchine was an idealist, a mystic of sorts, Martins was skeptical, ironical, up-to-date." She has a moving few paragraphs on the transformation of Peter Boal when he danced "Apollo" for Farrell. Not least, Acocella quotes Alexandra about the Farrell Company. All in all, I haven't been as excited about a New Yorker piece in a very long time. Quote Link to comment
