  1. Not sure how long this has been posted to the Music Center website but this is a line up for Tiler Peck's BalletNow programs. https://www.musiccenter.org/about/Our-Programs/Glorya-Kaufman-Dance/1617-Season/BalletNow/ I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed as this is happening the same weekend as La Scala in Giselle at SCFTA. These are actually fairly interesting programs and some Balanchine we never get to see here. I have Fri evening and Sat evening tickets to Giselle, but I guess I will be thinking about the Sunday matinee (though I like the program for Saturday evening better). Maybe I should swap my tickets to Giselle? What a horrible conundrum and bad planning by these two competing theaters.
  2. Just wanted to chime in and thank everyone for their reviews; I read them eagerly! Wish I could be seeing all these wonderful debuts. I saw on Lane's instagram that she thanks either/both Irina and Max for the help in the last few days. Good to hear about them coaching especially with the seeming bad blood.
  3. SCFTA website now shows that the Mariinsky will perform in the regular theater (Segerstrom Hall), not the concert hall. Yay? Still not renewing
  4. Maps, I'm not clear what you mean. Are you suggesting that La Scala was added at a later date so there may be more dance engagements added, like the Bolshoi Dreamer posted about? La Scala was always included in the series from the start, based on the initial announcement and inside the pdf in your link: http://balletalert.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/41151-scfta-20162017-season/ The program for La Scala did change mid-season (maybe in Feb/March of this year), however, from Cinderella to Giselle (thank god).
  5. I thought the same. I will be writing some emails to Judy Morr (thanks Josette) among others--not that they've emailed subscribers yet. You'd think that would be simultaneous with the announcement.
  6. Here is the official line up posted to the SCFTA Facebook, per the Register. Nothing about the Bolshoi. http://www.ocregister.com/2017/06/03/segerstrom-center-announces-2017-2018-international-dance-series/ Grim. Not renewing my subscription. The first weekend of the Nutcracker overlaps with Miami City Ballet's Nut at Dorothy Chandler. Poor scheduling.
  7. Yes and the subscription is a "Dance" subscription, not ballet, but still I think the offerings are poor as a general dance subscription. I wonder if there has been a fallout with Ardani? Is Ardani still doing Mariinsky and Bolshoi tours?
  8. I won't be renewing my subscription if this this actually the dance season. I left halfway through the tango program the last time it was here--not interested.
  9. I know this isn't the right thread, but what about the Bolshoi that was linked maybe a week ago? Horrible season.
  10. Thanks for the info! I'm not sure how to feel--I'm interested in Taming, but don't know anything about A Hero of Our Time? For other not-yet-announced info, Alvin Ailey will be at SCFTA in late April-ish according to their school show calendar page: https://www.scfta.org/Engage-and-Learn/On-Stage-at-the-Center/On-Stage-at-the-Center.aspx.
  11. I was wondering the same thing. Maybe we'll find out soon, or maybe they are just ditching a dance season altogether!
  12. World premiere at the Met, not at SCFTA...darn.
  13. Yes, but ABT isn't going to LA this year/this season--that's more the point I was making.
  14. It's a really late announcement--usually it comes at the end of Feb/early March but then again, so the Music Center's announcement. So maybe some companies have been slow in negotiations. I might be surprised if SCFTA gets an ABT-run beyond the Nutcracker if they are also going to LA with La Bayadere. But, maybe with the opening of the ballet school they will change past pattern.
