And once again, casting will be posted as soon as it's available. Casting is not made available to media until about a week before the performances. As soon as I get it, I'll post it or a link.

ESP, though. I'm hoping for information too (and hoping to see Julie Diana in the title role). If I get anything official, I'll let Dale know.

Giselle - Casting is up

Julie Diana, Riolama Lorenzo, Arnaxcha Ochoa are Giselle
Zachary Hench, Sergio Torrado (does anyone know who is), James Ady are Albrecht.

Wow, the very young Gabriella Yudenich who was such a hit as Coffee in the Nutcracker is dancing Myrtha! That's a surprise as PA Ballet tends to cast by seniority IMO.

The only day I can see Julie Diana is Feb 8, a weeknight.

Grrr. Hello, Greyhound.

I am hoping to go see both Julie and Riolama as Giselle. And as it was mentioned I also noticed that PAB is giving a few of the younger corps dancers great opportunities. Looking through the casting Gabriella Yudenich and Hawley Rowe are cast as Myrta and also Abigal Mentzer and Barette Vance are cast in Peasant Pas. Other roles featuring corps dancers are Barette Vance and Rebecca Azenberg as Moyna and Abigail Mentzer as Zulma. I am looking forward to seeing these young dancers perform these parts.

Thanks, lillianna. Can you tell us if Torrado joined PAB or is he guesting?

I know the answer but have been waiting for an official release from the company. There were a number of new dancers added to the company after Nutcracker, a few left and one promoted.

Since the links to articles the past 2 days discuss Sergio Terrado's employment with PA Ballet, it seems OK to now talk about it. Mr Terrado has been hired as a soloist by PA Ballet. I have enjoyed his dancing a immensely when he performed as a principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet. Most notable to me was his preformance as the Bull in Chi-Lyn. I am really excited to have him added to the PA Ballet ranks and can't wait to see his Albrecht this weekend.

I am also excited to hear about Sergio Terrado's employment with PAB. He will certainly be a nice addition to the company. lilliana, since I will not be able to go to see Giselle until next weekend, can you report back to us on this weekends performances?

I plan on seeing all 3 casts this weekend if all goes as planned. I can't wait to see the performances and the newcomers.

I am jealous and wish I could be there on opening night as well. But I will fortunately get to see two of the three casts next weekend :dry: Looking forward to your opinion after you see the shows.

I have been trying to access the Giselle casting roster on the PAB site for a few days now and I am unable to open the link. Is anyone else having the same problem or is something to do with my computer?
