A Ballet Couple Takes a Turn in Carousel

Who doesn’t love a good ballet company couple? New York City Ballet has bunches of them—Megan Fairchild and Andrew Veyette, Janie Taylor and Sebastien Marcovici, Teresa Reichlen and Justin Peck, Lauren Lovette and Daniel Ulbricht—but one of the troupe’s cutest pairs is Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild. Even before they were dating, we wanted to pinch their cheeks. Now, every time we see the two principals onstage together, we get all giggly and happy.

So we were thrilled to hear that the dynamic Peck-Fairchild duo will be performing in the New York Philharmonic’s presentation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, which runs Feburary 27 through March 2. Yes, since it’s a Philharmonic production, it’ll mostly be a celebration of the musical’s beautiful score. But Peck and Fairchild’s pas de deux to “If I Loved You” in the second act, choreographed by Warren Carlyle, is sure to be a highlight.

Here’s the even better news, especially for non-New Yorkers: PBS will also telecast the show at 9 pm (EST) on April 26. Click here to find out more!
