Great interview, Philip - thank you!


I was lucky to have a great subject...


Phillip I do believe you could make a second career out of interviewing dancers! Wonderful questions! I love Edwaard with the longer hair! Hope he keeps it.


Hi Perky, I wish you were here for the MORPHOSES season!

Edwaard's hair is fantastic and I still can't get over how beautiful these photographs are.


Bravo Philip. Well interviewed. As you know, I LOVED his piece at Miller Theatre so I am glad to see it mentioned.

Can't wait for Thursday night!!!


Hi Sarah, hope to see you there on Thursday!


Yay...it's finally up! What an insightful and all around fabulous interview! Thanks for sharing this with all of us. You ask some very difficult, but EXCELLENT, questions. Here's to future "Oberon's Grove" exclusives! Congrats.

Sophie B

Thanks for the lovely interview! Can't wait to see him along with the rest of Morphoses!


Thank you, M and Sophie...the only problem I had with it was discarding several questions that I really wanted to ask.


I forgot to add yesterday that I am sooo pea-green with envy that you got to talk to Lourdes Lopez. When she was still dancing at NYCB she was one of my favorites. She had the look onstage of a glamours exotic 40's movie star. She could be dramatic yet feminine. Her Firebird remains the best most vibrant one I've seen. Much good luck and wishes to her Chris
Wheeldon and Morphoses.


Lourdes Lopez is such a nice lady, and I was lucky to have seen her in several of her roles at NYC Ballet including Sugar Plum Fairy in NUTCRACKER, STRAVINSKY VIOLIN CONCERTO, WHO CARES? and GLASS PIECES. She was especially glamourous as the Merry Widow in VIENNA WALTZES and as Carabosse in Peter's SLEEPING BEAUTY. I wish I'd seen her FIREBIRD!


Yes, Philip - thanks for the insightful interview. Liang looks great with long hair & I'm very excited to see him & his work again. There is also a long feature on Wheeldon & the new company in NY magazine. It has some absolutely beautiful shots of Christopher. I can't believe tonight has finally arrived - is it curtain time yet?


Hi Susan,
The wait is almost over! I feel a bit strange not going tonight but will hold out for the gala tomorrow. I hope everyone noted the updated rep & casting.

The New York Magazine article is wonderful and the pictures of Chris are unique. I put a link to it in the "Christopher Wheeldon: MORPHOSES" story below this one on the blog.

See you Sunday!


Fantastic interview! I too loved Edwaard's pieces at the Miller last year. I am so looking forward to tomorrow night!! I'll come say hi if I see you!


Great, Sandi! Let's all be on the lookout for each other at the gala. I'll be wearing a TIE!


Are there any DVD/videos of Edwaard Liang dancing - I have the one on Fosse but I am particular interested in any ballet DVD/videos

Thank you J


Hi John,

Aside from FOSSE the only commercially available video in which Edwaard appears is the original New York City Ballet Workout which is not really dance but does include a short segment about Edwaard's love of food. It looks like Amazon has this DVD available.

At the New York Choreographic Institute's website, there's a link to a video of Edwaard choreographing.

Edwaard can also be seen demonstrating ballet steps at Podcast GO. There is a link to these short demos in the right-hand column of my blog under "Dance".
