At the Kennedy Center, ABT is doing the full-length Bayadère. They always do a mixed bill, too, but the ballets aren't announced until very late.

Thanks Ari. I was thinking they might try out the Raymonda in Washington as they did with Swan Lake and other new productions in the past. I'm excited about the return of Pillar, which might be the 1 Tudor revival of the year for ABT, only to be dropped the next year.

Has ABT toured Europe recently?

I've noticed that most of their tours are domestic or in Asia.

Is there a reason why they focus much more domestically and don't travel too often to Europe, besides perhaps financial reasons? It seems like NYCB and SFB have more fans in Europe -- or am I wrong...?

Does anyone know their dates during the fall at City Center?

Thanks.

The City Center season is from Oct 21 – Nov 9, 03.

In addition, a 2002 Howard Gilman Foundation was given to ABT to extend its fall City Center season to four weeks in 2004. So three weeks this season (an increase of about a week) and four weeks next year. I hope the company will put the performance opportunities to good use!
