Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - September 28, 2019

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
September 28, 2019



The New York City Ballet, at the David H. Koch Theater, presented Jewels, choreography by George Balanchine, scenery by Peter Harvey, costumes by Karinska. When it premiered in 1967, it was an  instant success. Today, it still is. It consists of three ballets, by three composers. Emeralds, music by Gabriel Faure, the decor and costumes is green. Rubies, music by Igor Stravinsky, is red. and Diamonds, music by Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky, is white. The dancing in all three ballets was fine, but Rubies, with Sterling Hyltin, Andrew Veyette and Emily Kikta, was exceptional, and Diamonds, with the glorious Maria Kowroski, partnered excellently by Tyler Angle, brought the afternoon to a delightful close. Andrew Litton conducted the orchestra, which played the music of each ballet perfectly.
I was invited to a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the Westin Hotel, 212 East 42nd St. The celebration was for  Monaco Better World Forum Smart Climate Day . Among the many honored guests, I met and photographed actress  Kiera Chaplin , the granddaughter of  Charlie Chaplin,  actress/singer  Jazmin Grace Grimaldi,  daughter of  Albert, Prince of Monaco  (photo below of Kiera and Jazmin),  Chief Raoni,  who won the 2019 Colombe D'Or for Best Commitment as a figure of the Protection of the Amazon Forest, who arrived with four Amazon natives.  Jean-Michel Cousteau , the son of the  Jacques Cousteau , who heads the Ocean Futures Society, was also present. The evening included an auction  sponsored by the French Institute Alliance Francaise.  At my table were charming dinner companions from Italy, South Korea and Belgium. It was a lovely, memorable evening for a splendid cause,
Founding Artistic Director Susan Charlotte presented Food for Thought The Wisdom of Eve, Part One, by Mary Orr, at the Coffee House. A cast of six excellent actors, including Angelica Page, Tony Roberts and Louise Sorel, directed by Antony Marsellis, was followed by a Q & A.

I photographed some of the members of the cast afterwards. It was an interesting afternoon.

I attended the opening night party for Caesar & Cleopatra, by Bernard Shaw, at the Lounge at Theatre Row. I congratulated the cast and the director David Staller, who heads The Gingold Theatrical Group. Among the guests were Tyne Daly, Karen Ziemba, Maryann Plunkett, Jay O. Sanders and Simon Jones. It was an enjoyable party. A few nights later, I saw the play. The excellent seven member cast, directed by David Staller, included Teresa Avia Lim as Cleopatra, Brenda Braxton as Ftatateeta and Robert Cuccioli as Caesar (photo below with his wife Laila Robins).

The New York City Ballet presented three ballets by George BalanchineValse-Fantasie, music by Mikhail Glinka, is a short, pleasant ballet, staring Erica Pereira and Daniel UlbrichtKammermusik No. 2, music by Paul Hindemith, was the second ballet. Union Jack, music by Hershy Kay (adapted from traditional British music) was the highlight of the evening. All three sections are delightful, beginning with the Scottish and Canadian Guards Regiments, followed by an entertaining Costermonger Pas de Deux, with Andrew Veyette and Megan Fairchild, and concluding with Royal Navy, featuring many of the leading dancers of the company, like Sara Mearns, Sterling Hyltin, Abi Stafford and WRENS with Teresa ReichlinClotilde Otranto conducted the orchestra. It was a wonderful ending to a fine night of ballet.
My good friend, a member of the Irish Repertory Company, invited me to see Kingfishers Catch Fire, by Robin Glendinning, in the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre. The play takes place in a prison cell, and is based on a true story. Haskell King is a Nazi commander in Rome, and Sean Gormley is a priest, who helped allied servicemen and Jews to escape. It is a highly intelligent discussion between the two men.
