Sara Mearns in Ratmansky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, New
York City Ballet, Pictures at an Exhibition, October 2014. - Some dances,
including the first solo (by Sara Mearns), had a wild, improvisatory,
part-stumbling, part-inspired quality. The tailor-made nature of the ballet’s
solos reflects one of Mr. Ratmansky’s greatest gifts: dancers are vividly,
individually, intimately revealed.
