The Dance Insider Illustration, 4-26: Good 'Judgment'
Seduced by New York Theatre Ballet's Tudor

This Friday and Saturday, New York Theatre Ballet will perform Antony Tudor's "Judgment of Paris," in New York's Florence Gould Hall. I saw the company's performance of the work about a year ago, and it stuck in my imagination. NYTB has eminent Tudor interpreter Sallie Wilson to stage and coach, and the dancers have real acting chops. But they also have the humility to bring out the subtlety in a joke. If you never understood why Tudor was great, I recommend seeing New York Theatre Ballet's productions of his ballets. Above: Venus, Minerva, and Juno take turns attempting to seduce their tipsy customer.
