The ballerina role was engraved in my mind by Suzanne Farrell, how she would move, balance and tilt, the expression in her face, her arms, how her fingers would arch. Well, I experienced an epiphany. For the first time ever after many years of seeing “Diamonds,” I have truly appreciated the piece on its own terms and left past associations behind. It is a marvelous ballet, perfectly structured, with fascinating patterns and combinations, and certainly a festive way with which to close an evening. Agnes Letestu as the ballerina establishes the role as her own, imposing her line, her style, her vision on a part so vividly etched in the memory of many by somebody else. She is magnificent. x
