Former New York City Ballet dancers accused Mr. Martins of verbal and physical abuse, and an anonymous letter contained sexual harassment allegations against him.
Why have even senior City Ballet dancers been deprived for so long of interpretive wisdom about this (and many other) Balanchine ballets?

Former NYCB corps member Sophie Flack: "I have known some of you for a long time, so I'm telling you this as a friend: by posting on social media your sadness for Peter's downfall, you are siding with an abuser. You are discrediting the men and women who've come forward, an extraordinarily difficult thing to […]
"Wilhelmina Frankfurt, a former NYCB ballerina and currently a dance educator, joined [Alyona Minkovski] on 'Salon Talks' to discuss Martins's legacy and reveal new claims against her former director." (text and video)
Bernadette Peters is best known for her role as the trumpet playing vixen Marie -- opposite Steve Martin as Navin -- in the 1979 funny film 'The Jerk.' Guess what she looks like now!
Kelly Cass Boal, who was one of the first to publicly accuse Martins of physical violence, describes her interview with the lawyer leading the inquiry as more like a cross-examination than a fact-finding effort: "I felt she was uninterested in the facts, and was just trying to mess up the timeline. She asked me, 'Why […]
