Christopher Wheeldon and Nikolaj Hübbe Say Goodbye

While NYCB soldiers on

The afternoon also paid homage to Hübbe’s heritage and looked forward to his new position. Coached by him, Kathryn Morgan and David Prottas, two very bright and talented dancers in NYCB’s corps de ballet, performed the pas de deux from August Bournonville’s Flower Festival in Genzano. Hübbe, trained in the Bournonville style and performing as a principal dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet before joining NYCB, knows this repertory well. One of his jobs in Copenhagen will be preserving it; another will be fostering new choreography in the three theaters available to him. Bon voyage, Nikolaj! It’ll be a great adventure.
