Reviews by Project

 

After The Rain, Morphoses - 2007

 
 
 
 
 

Appalachia Waltz, New York City Ballet - 2000

 
 

Jeffrey Ellis ~ Broadway World, Nashville

"(In Appalachian Spring) Leathers' beautiful lighting plays an especially vital role in relating the story, and Holly Hynes' costumes - both theatrical and authentic in a way only the best costume designer can achieve - clothes the dancers in the perfect garments for the piece."

 
 

Brandenburg, New York City Ballet - 1997

 
 
 
 

Anna Kisselgoff ~ NYTimes

"{In Carousel (A Dance)} Damian Woetzel, as the hands-in-pockets hero, is initially encircled by an ensemble in Holly Hynes's brightly colored costumes. Alexandra Ansanelli, in yellow, is the outsider."

 
 
 
 

Clarinade, Suzanne Farrell Ballet - 2005

 

Concerto DSCH, New York City Ballet - 2008

 

(The) Core, Houston Ballet - 2008

 

Cypher, Barak Ballet - 2018

  • LA Times: Barak Ballet at the Broad Stage: New moves for a company on the verge

 

Daphnis et Chloé, Paris Opera Ballet - 2014

 

Roslyn Sulcas ~ NYTimes

"(In Daphnis et Chloé) A Greece of the imagination is nonetheless evoked by the lighting, which creates dawns, dusks and skies of glowing beauty, by the pale, simply draped dresses (by Holly Hynes), and by the starkness of the stage...But the final scene, in which the ensemble, now dressed in bright gold, green, blue and orange, joyfully reunite, makes up for any lag in momentum. Mr. Millepied’s ability to create ever-shifting pattern — often echoing Mr. Buren’s geometries — is on dazzling display here, fully equal to the music’s intensifying dynamics and colors."

 

Danses Concertantes, Suzanne Farrell Ballet - 2012

 

Divertimento Brilliante, Suzanne Farrell Ballet - 2007

 

Double Aria, New York City Ballet - 2005

Falling, San Francisco Ballet - 2008

 

Flötezart, New York City Ballet - 1992

 

Getting Married, Circle in the Square/Broadway - 1991

 
 

Alastair Macaulay ~ NYTimes

"(In Gounod) Ms. Farrell’s costume designer, Holly Hynes, has dressed 10 of the women in white dresses with black outlines, the other 10 in black with white outlines, while the men wear white tops and black tights. The overlapping black-and-white contrasts become blite and whack with all the choreographic changes — spectacular."

 

If By Chance, New York City Ballet - 2002

 

Images, New York City Ballet - 1992

 
 

In The Blue, New York City Ballet - 1994

 

In the Mi(d)st, New York City Ballet - 2002

Morphoses, New York City Ballet - 2002

 

Mozart Piano Concerto, New York City Ballet - 1994

 
 

(The) New Blondes, New York City Ballet - 1994

 
 

Allan Ulrich ~ SF Chronicle Correspondent

In "Number Nine," Wheeldon seems almost intoxicated with movement. There is no sobriety to be found in Holly Hynes' costumes, daffodil for the corps and bright hues for the principals' short skirts and maillots. Mary Louise Geiger has lit the piece in primary colors, and when tangerine meets lavender, it's impossible to resist."

 
 
 
 

​On Borrowed Time, Circle in the Square/Broadway - 1991

 

One/end/One, Houston Ballet - 2011

 

Operetta Affezionata, New York City Ballet - 1995

 

Orange, Dance Galaxy at the Joyce Theater - 2001

 
 
 

Red Angels, New York City Ballet - 1994

 

Anna Kisselgoff ~ NYTimes

"(In Red Angels)...The four dancers, in Holly Hynes's striking red leotards, are bathed in spotlights or red lighting by Mark Stanley."

 

Refractions, New York City Ballet - 1992

 
 
 

Scenes de Ballet, New York City Ballet - 1999

 

Schoenberg/Wuorinen Variations, New York City Ballet - 1996

 

Schubert Sonata, New York City Ballet - 1994

 
 
 
 

Deborah Jowitt ~ The Village Voice

"(In Seven Sonatas) The premise of Ratmanksy’s piece is simple: Three gentle-mannered couples in simple, fluid white clothing by Holly Hynes treat the music as if it were a glade in which to dance together, alone, and in couples."

 
 

​Slice to Sharp, New York City Ballet - 2006

 

Slonimsky’s Earbox, New York City Ballet - 2000
