“SPRING FORWARD”: “Deconstructionist elegance” reigned at this year’s gala co-chaired by Mary Haft and designer Darryl Carter, whose ultra-modern-but-oh-so-economical setting featured iron candelabras (instead of flowers), classic white Panton chairs, and architectural scaffolding covered in translucent cloth to silhouette lithe young company members’ graceful poses. DINNER AND A SHOW: Cocktails, a sensual performance by dancers Jared Nelson and Sona Kharatian, politically correct food  (“sustainable” seafood Newburg and chicken –surely free-range), mercifully brief speeches, and dancing to the sounds of Free Spirit. WHO WAS THERE: Ballet director Septime Webre (celebrating 10 years at the helm), and major benefactors Arturo and Hilda Brillembourg and Raul and Jean-Marie Fernandez.
