Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -June 27, 2015

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

June 27, 2015

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Swan Lake, choreography by Kevin McKenzie after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, at the Metropolitan Opera House. It is probably the most popular ballet in the repertoire, and the audience was privileged to see a stellar cast. Maria Kochetkova (Odette-Odile) was simply perfect. She was a superb fragile swan in Act II: Later at the Lakesidewith Herman Cornejo as a magnificent Prince Siegfried in his solos and duets. Kochetkova received a thunderous ovation in the Act III: The Great Hall scene, where James Whiteside gave a brilliant performance as von Rothbart in the same scene. The three dancers were a joy to watch. It was a memorable night at the ballet.

Honoree 91-year-old Theodore Bikel received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Alan Alda from the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF), who are the main presenters of the KulturfestNYC, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. 36 Battery Place. It followed the screening of In The Shoes of Sholom Alechem, starring Bikel. It is a wonderful documentary, with Bikel explaining the respect he has for the writer and why singing songs in Yiddish is important for him. Afterwards, there was a VIP reception for Bikel, where he was congratulated by guests Sheldon Harnick and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, with live music, including a song performed by Bikel in his wheelchair. It was a lovely event.





The 2015 Kleban Prize for Musical  Theatre was presented at ASCAP, 1900 Broadway, to Sam Willmott as the Most Promising Musical Theatre Lyricist and to Sam Carner as the Most promising Theatre Librettist. Two selections from each prize winner were performed, and Sam Willmott performed one of his selections. He was sensational, and I  predict a wonderful career for this talented young man. A reception with delicious food and wine followed. It was another lovely event.

We were invited to a delightful Meet & Greet luncheon at the Strand Bistro, 33 West 37th St, for Shakespeare and Company's 2015 Summer Season. The Co-Interim Artistic Director Jonathan Croy addressed the attendees, and introduced John Douglas Thompson, who will be starring in Red Velvet as Ira Aldridge, the first African-American actor to play Othello on the English stage in 1833. Also present was Communications Director Elizabeth Aspenlieder and publicist Molly Clancy. The food served was delicious.

We were invited also to Swifty's restaurant, 1007 Lexington Avenue, to view Water Works Art Show, featuring artist Elizabeth Nagle, with water as the predominant theme. As we drank delicious wine and ate scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, I had the occasion to chat with Chef Stephen Attoe's wife, Patricia, who curated the exhibition. It was a pleasant event.

I attended a press conference for the Subway Cinema/2015 New York Film Festival The Hong Kong Panorama at the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office. Film Star Aaron Kwok was present, and answered questions from the media, and posed for photographs. Also, film director Ringo Lam attended.  The program of films to be presented at the festival from Hong Kong was given to the attendees. Later that evening, we attended a reception at the Walter Reade Theater, where the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award and Star Asia Award was presented to multiple-award winning director Ringo Lam, and superstar Aaron Kwok before the opening night screening of his film Port of Call
