It seems like a perfect triple bill: Slaughter-Four Ts-Ballo della Regina. Anybody else from this forum going? I have tix for the Saturday night presentation.

Would appreciate any insights on who-to-look-out-for from our Pa Ballet regulars, as I haven't seen this company in ages. Thanks.

HI Natalia! Yes, I will be there Thursday and Saturday nights and Sunday matinee.
Infact, just did my ticketing last night after finding out about casting. I hope that PABallet will post the casts so you can see who is danicng what. (Or you can PM me.)
I can tell you that there is one cast for Wed, Sat eve. and Sun. matinee. Another cast for Thurs and Sat. matinee.....Friday is a gala event where the company will be dancing Slaughter and continuing to dinner afterwards.....I am excitied to see this program too. A wonderful Balanchine mix :)

I'm waiting for the casting to come out before buying my tickets. Dancers to look for are Amy Aldridge, Arantxa Ochoa and Riolama Lorenzo. I'm also looking forward to seeing Julie Diana, late of SFB, with her new company.

I believe the program is actually Slaughter, Ballo and Agon (not Four T's). But I agree what a wonderful rep. Can't wait to see these three performed by PABallet. I will be attending a few performances so hopefully I will be able to see both casts. :)

Zachary Hench has also moved to PA Ballet from San Fco, right?

The only familiar name to me is Arantxa Ochoa, who starred in the Pa. Ballet's Midsummer Night's Dream the last time that I saw them live...4-5 years ago, perhaps. Ochoa was a wonderful Titania then.

Oh...and I remember (barely) the exotic Riolama Lorenzo from her NYCB corps days. I was wondering whatever became of her.

Agon is fine, too...another of my favorite Balanchine b&w's! Thanks for the info, everyone.

Friday is the Gala and only Slaughter is being performed at 6:30 pm, dinner and dancing follow at another location. It is not a public perfomance.

I asked because the casts for the matinees are listed as "Same as Friday."

Sorry Ari, that day is the same as Thursday, and I corrected it. Natalia, Lorenzo is only performing the pas de deux in Agon. I also would have loved to see her in Slaughter, but we have to remember, she is not a principal.

Oh dear. I am confused now too.....I was under the impression that Saturday matinee was Thursday evenings cast except with Chamberlain/Stiles in Ballo. And Sunday matinee was Wednesday evenings cast with Ochoa dancing both Ballo and Agon........ :P

Well, I didn't want to post the entire casting from the Playbill, but I don't want people to be confused. So, I'll post the entire cast list for all the days.
