Con la Y de…

Yuri Soloviev. Dicen que podía saltar sin hacer plié y colocarse sobre la banqueta del piano. Y viendo su batterie, yo me lo creo.

Young People’s Concerts. Leonard Bernstein, en estado puro. Cualquier parecido con los modelos actuales de conciertos infantiles, es pura coincidencia.

Yumiko. Desde que ha vestido a Natalie Portman en Black Swan, parece que el mundo la ha descubierto, pero todas usamos sus maillots desde hace muchos años.

Yuntero, El niño. Por favor, no nos adoctrinen; basta con que nos dejen leer poesía.

Yamaha. O Steinway. Según los gustos.

Youskevitch, Igor. Y su balanchiniano Tema y Variaciones con Alicia Alonso.

Ye-ye. Concha Velasco recibió una sólida formación de ballet con Elna & Leif Ørnberg en Madrid; creo que aún hoy bastaría con darle una pandereta para que nos bailase la tarantella de Napoli.

Y at 92nd Street. Los pequeños grandes milagros de Nueva York.

Yul Brinner. Por sus 4525 funciones de El Rey y yo.

Young at heart. “Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you…”. Pues sí.

Yuri Soloviev. I heard he could jump without doing plié, and fall standing on the piano bench. After having watched his batterie, I believe it’s true.

Young People’s Concerts. The best Leonard Bernstein ever seen; any similarity to the current models of children’s concerts, is pure, unintentional coincidence.

Yumiko. Since she designed the leotards for Natalie Portman in Black Swan, the world seems to have discovered her work, but we’ve been wearing her outfits for many years.

Yuntero, El niño. Please, do not indoctrinate us; just let us read some poetry.

Yamaha. Or Steinway. Each one to its own.

Youskevitch, Igor. And his Balanchine’s Theme and Variations with Alicia Alonso.

Ye-ye. Believe it or not, the great actress Concha Velasco received a solid ballet training from Elna & Leif Ørnberg in Madrid, and I think that she could still dance Napoli‘s tarantella as far as she could get a  tambourine.

Y at 92nd Street. Those little great New York miracles.

Yul Brynner. Because he performed 4525 times the musical The King and I.

Young at heart. “Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you…”. Oh, yes.
