Dream a Little Dream
Delve into our season finale, A Dancer’s Dream, with a look at our newest Pinterest board: Inside “A Dancer’s Dream.” Director and designer Doug Fitch (who helped create our productions of Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre and Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen) has given us an exclusive peek at the inspiration boards that went into costuming Columbine, the Moor, Petrushka, and the Ice Maiden for Petrushka and The Fairy’s Kiss, two ballets by Stravinsky that make up our season finale in June that stars NYC Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns. See how designers like Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Viktor & Rolf combine with artful origami and the looks of everyone from Mad Max to classical ballet to create this one of a kind Dream.

The New York Philharmonic’s 2012 Concerts in the Parks are but a pleasant memory now. Luckily, snapshots from some of the nearly 120,000 music lovers, picnickers, and even Conga line dancers, who turned out for the Orchestra’s performances throughout the five boroughs have been collected on the Philharmonic’s Pinterest page. Revisit the memories (like this great shot of the finale fireworks over Belvedere Castle in Central Park), and be sure to check out our continuing collection of Pinterest boards in the upcoming season.
