Matinee at the Ballet: Prodigal Son

NYCB is having another digital season. You can see one of George Balanchine’s masterpieces, Prodigal Son, until March 4 on YouTube.

The ballet is free but make a donation if you can. Ballet dancers are some of the most highly impacted artists during the lockdowns. They need to condition their bodies everyday and if they can’t perform, there’s a good chance they’re not getting paid in some companies. That’s the way we roll here in the US. This art is almost totally dependent on charitable contributions and performances, unlike European ballets that are benefiting from governmental stipends.

So, enjoy this ballet. The role of the siren is especially good here.

  1. I’m glad the dancers are still dancing — it’s amazing how quickly you can lose your technique. I read yesterday that 2/3 of the performing arts community in NYC is out of work. Just staggering numbers. I will absolutely watch the ballets, and make a donation.
