Welcome Back, Joseph Gordon!
After being out for the fall and Nutcracker season with an injury, the wildly talented Joseph Gordon made his return to the NYCB stage as Gold in the 2/15/17 performance of Sleeping Beauty. NYCB has put up two brief but wonderful clips of the performance: Joseph Gordon as Gold. No explanation necessary.

There are only 5 perfs https://t.co/cNA8orL1NE pic.twitter.com/yqy5yRJOJP — New York City Ballet (@nycballet) February 16, 2017 And the ever radiant Sterling Hyltin's entrance as Aurora: FLASH FOOTAGE: Last night Sterling Hyltin enchanted us as Princess Aurora.
