We've begun to fill in the calendar with the performance schedules from many companies, with more to come. To view the calendar, click the Calendar link at the top right of any page (edited to: the left-most link). If you click any of the items on the Calendar, there will be detail about the performance/program and how to buy tickets.

There are a couple of things to note:* The New York City Ballet Winter Season will be posted when the new website is up, and we can add the appropriate links to the detail.

* We're waiting for site updates from the Bolshoi and Kirov (English versions) and a number of smaller American companies; we'll add them to the calendar when they become available.

* December is empty, because there are simply too many companies performing The Nutcracker.

* Some cities (like Paris and Copenhagen) have more than one venue; please see the detail for the venue. On some days, the company will perform in both venues.

* Before planning trips, please confirm the date, time, and program from the company websites themselves. These are subject to change. Also, one of the "features" of the board software is that once you submit an item to the Calendar, there's no way to search for it if there's a mistake in the date, and there are a few "floating" performances from my own entries.
Many, many thanks to carbro for all of the work she's put into Calendar.

This is terrific -- thanks to both of you! I used to do something very like this for the print version of Ballet Alert! every year and know how much time it takes. It will be a wonderful resource!!!

Glad to have done it, and I share your thanks with Helene, my "teammate."

I hope observant BT-ers will pm me and/or Helene if you spot any significant oversights.

This remains -- perpetually -- a work in progress.

i shudder to think about the effort that went into arranging this, and the continued effort needed to maintain it.
it is in the literal sense of the now-popular catch-all term: awesome.
many thanks all around.
