In 2002, the Washington Post exclaimed, “…an ensemble that tackles difficult ballets with a fearless zest and makes them seem fresh and alive” following the company’s fall engagement. Under the auspices of the Kennedy Center, Suzanne Farrell’s international company of dancers returns to the Eisenhower Theater for its third full engagement. The company will present a program of Balanchine works as part of the Kennedy Center Tchaikovsky Festival and a second program currently titled “The Balanchine Couple” – exploring the unique relationship between the great choreographer and his dancers. The Kennedy Center engagement will be preceded by a 7-week national tour that will include stops in California, New York, and Pennsylvania, among others.

Dale (or anyone) if you find out what's in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, that area, please post. I've put up all I could find on line at this time.

However, Tzigane and Divert. No. 15 were ballets listed for NJ. I'm hoping the Tchaikovsky ballets from the other stops will be put on the program. The Kennedy Center lists that the company will be performing in New York. I'm not sure that is in NYC, because the Farrell Ballet is not listed at BAM, Symphony Space or her prior venue, the New Victory Theatre. However, the Kaye playhouse has not announced its 2003-04 season, nor has the Joyce. Or, New York could be upstate, such as at Purchase or Bard. They are not coming to the Tilles Center, as they had two years ago. I do wish the company would get a web site or a listing on a pr site.
I also searched around in Pennsylvania, but the Meriam Theater has not updated its next season. The company is not listed for the Kimmel Center.

Bard just opened a new theatre in May....I have checked the Bardavon web site and it is in a state of "updating"

Thanks to Alexandra's link to the Toby Tobias "blog" on Arts Journal , I've just been reminded that Suzanne Farrell's company is performing on October 11th at NJPAC...but what I didn't know is that they will also be at Brooklyn College on October 12th for a matinee.
What is Brooklyn College like as a place to watch ballet? I've never been to NJPAC, in Newark, NJ, though I have heard it's quite nice... Any comments?

Farrell Fan's description of NJPAC's Prudential Hall is accurate. I found the place very attractive and comfortable on my (belated!) first visit this past spring.
I visited the Brooklyn College venue once or twice many years ago, and I do not remember it as "dark and forbidding," perhaps because I attended matinees. Don't remember. :shrug: It is a college auditorium, i.e., a little Spartan. It has good sightlines.

Thanks for the question, and thanks for the information on the theaters, Carbro.

P.S. I think beanies are fine, as long as they come in a variety of sizes and are hybrids.
