In the Wings: Behind the Scenes at the New York City Ballet is a book by Kyle Froman. It was released in September 2007 in Hardcover.
OverviewIn this book Kyle Froman explores the physically demanding life of New York City Ballet dancers. Froman takes his camera behind the scenes and offers a glimpse into the ballet world that outsiders rarely see: the daily training, the injuries, the last-minute cast changes, and ultimately, the transcendent moments onstage at the end of the day.
The book is told as Kyle's personal diary of a dancer's day: Ch.1 is "10:15AM," Ch. 2 is "11:30AM," Ch. 3 is "2:15," Ch. 4 is "6:15," and Ch. 5 is "Showtime." From morning company class to rehearsal to performance, the text offers intriguing insights into the mental discipline and emotions that come into play in preparing for the show.
The foreword is written by Peter Martins, Ballet Master in Chief of the New York City Ballet. He says of the book, "Here is the New York City Ballet as it really is - the good, the not so good, and the majestically beautiful. It's a true story, and it's told by someone who can honestly claim that he was there."
A wing is a part of a stage deck that is "offstage" (that is, out of sight of the audience.) Specifically, it is stage right or stage left. It is generally separated using drapes (usually black). Often there will be 2, 3, or even 4 different "portals" which consist of a wing curtain (or leg) on each side of the stage and a teaser drape (or border.) It is used for performers preparing to enter, storage of sets for slow changes, and as a stagehand work area. Wings also hide technical equipment, such as lights which project from the side of the stage.
