I'm kind of underwhelmed...

This season featured two major Balanchines, a rare Ashton and a Firebird.
Next year: a chunk of Swan Lake (always weakened out of context), Concerto Barocco (Nice, but OBT school and apprentices perform it this spring), In the Night by Robbins (heard good things but never seen it)

Mind you, much of what is unknown and yet to be created could well be thrilling, but I was hoping for more than an act of story ballet and less Kent Stowell.
And the quick repeat of Company B (not my favorite) is very disappointing.

I am looking forward to new work by Possokhov and Chris Stowell
...and the Robbins.

I understand there's a new half dozen dancers being hired so we may see a major shift in the dancer's abilities. It's still a transitional company.

I hope to be suprised as much next year as I have been this year.
