No Tour This Fall

7 posts in this topic

From Robert Johnson in The Star-Ledger:

Because of a funding shortfall, the Suzanne Farrell Ballet has called off its upcoming tour dates. According to a spokesman for the Kennedy Center, the financial viability of the tour depended upon an engagement in Mexico City, which was canceled by the presenter. :(

It's a long way off, but does this jeopardize the company's Washington D.C. season next summer or its future?

Cal Performances (Berkeley) also has the cancellation up on their website already.

Depressing news. I was looking forward to seeing the company in Berkeley again this year. I hope this isn't a portent of future bad news.

This is really sad news...ABT is cutting back on its touring also. But it's not just ballet...friends who went to opening night at the Met last night reported large numbers of empty seats. The performing arts in general are really suffering right now...and in the Met's case, they are pricing themselves out of most people's reach. I just bought 2 balcony seats for WALKURE and paid $150...even NYCB is said to be raising the 4th Ring Society ticket price for the coming season though in all fairness the increase is over-due; and it remains a huge bargain.

I was hoping to see Suzanne Farrell's ballet company in Southern CA. It's sad to hear that it got cancelled. I missed the performance last year in my area and hoped that I would be able to see it this year.
