In some of his pre-performance remarks for Program IV, Edward Villella revealed some of his ideas about next season: Three Balanchine ballets, "La Sonnambula," "La Valse," and "Ballet Imperial" (he didn't say anything about the differences between this and "Concerto No. 2," the revised version); three Robbins ballets, "Aftrnoon of a Faun," "Fancy Free," and "Other Dances"; Paul Taylor's "Piazzola Caldera"; and a new ballet by Trey McIntyre. And there is reason to expect the whole season will have an orchestra in the pit.

I forgot to mention that a revival of MCB's "Coppelia," not the Balanchine one, is also on the agenda.

Jack, thank you for your continued posting about MCB. It is nice to be kept up to date on what people are seeing from this company. Also, what is forthcoming from them as well. :helpsmilie:

I second that. I always enjoy reading your reports. Others from the area, please do chime in!

Thank you both. (With that kind of encouragement, I may yet write about Program II.) And, speaking of others, do check out nysusan's account of Program III ("Giselle") if you haven't already. I got a lot out of it myself.
