I haven't yet seen the production, but Martine Lamy, who created the role, is a very fine dance actress. She made me like "Onegin", a ballet that to that point I had no love for. This is her last season before being retired from the company; I would recommend seeing her.
The brochure gives no casting but has two photos of Lamy.

From what I observed, "The Contract" received a lukewarm response here in Toronto (it's more that some people really loved it and other detested it, so that the mean is something in between). I can't say I was very impressed when I saw it in 2002, but to be fair, it did look tighter overall during the second run (fall 2004) and Lamy really makes the most of the role of Eva. The ballet is somewhere between 80-90 mins.- no intermession.
Richard, if you decide to go, please make sure to post about it here! I'd be really interested to read others' opinions. The talk with Kudelka and Torke should be interesting also...

I feel that The Contract was very under appreciated and deserved a much greater applause and audience then what it received in New York.
