Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben June 2, 2018

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

June 2, 2018


The New York City Ballet presented Coppelia, music by Leo Delibes, choreography by George Balanchine and Alexandra Danilova. It is, without doubt, one of the loveliest ballets ever produced, dating from 1870. The two leads, Tiler Peck and Joaquin De Luz, were superb, and it was a joy to watch their spectacular dancing. And one must congratulate the adorable children, students of The School of the American Ballet, who appeared in the third act. They were so disciplined and prepared, that they almost stole the show. Ballet has never been so more enjoyable than this charming production.


American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented La Bayadere, choreography by Natalia Makarova, music by Ludwig Minkus. It is one of the most beautiful ballets in the repertoire of the company. I saw the first production in 1980 and I was overwhelmed, especially the Kingdom of the Shades scene in the second act. The dancing could not have been better, and the audience granted the two leads, Sarah Lane (Nikiya) and Herman Cornejo (Solor), a tumultuous, well deserved ovation after their solos and pas de deux. Skylar Brandt as (Gamzatti) and Joseph Gorak as The Bronze Idol in the last act also deserved well merited applause. David LaMarche conducted the orchestra, which played the score splendidly to close a memorable night.

Devil of Choice, by Maggie Diaz Bofill, at the Cherry Lane Theatre, is a production of LAByrinth Theater Company. Three actors are directed by Shira-Lee Shalit, and a violinist introduces a series of short scenes. 

A smug married English professor gets involved with a colleague. He teaches Goethe's Faust, and we in the audience are subjected to portions of his lectures, sprinkled with profanity. I studied Faust in my World Lit class at Indiana University in the spring term of 1949, with a brilliant teacher, and Faust, by Gounod, is one of my favorite operas. I enjoyed them more.

Tchaikovsky: None But The Lonely Heart
, by Eve Wolf, is a production of Ensemble for the Romantic Century at Pershing Square Signature Center. Two actors, a tenor,  a ballet dancer and three musicians are directed by Donald T. SandersJoey Slotnick as the composer reads letters he wrote his benefactor Nadezhda von Meck (Shorey Walker), who admires him. They never meet, but she replies for a number of years and sends him money. They have a strange friendship. It is an interesting production with talented actors and musicians. The opening night party took place at West Bank Cafe.

Loretta Swit (photo below) was given a cocktail party and dinner for her book SwitHeart which feautres her watercolors and her animal activism at Jue Lan Club, 49 West 20th St.  Among the guests enjoying the party were Mark Kostabi, Grammy winner Desiree (photo below) and David Allen

On the cover of the Beauty Issue of Bella Magazine is Alexa Ray Joel and we celebrated the occasion with her at a cocktail party at La Pulperia, 151 East 57th St.
