No information about ticket price.
I don't see him on the schedule for the other programs at BAC this spring.
Last summer, his touring schedule with Laguna was available on the BAC site. I wonder if he is not planning any tours this spring or, perhaps, it's just not final yet.

Here's the program:
Otherwise, googling is turning up no other performances in 2010. If others discover something, please pass it along.

"As for the international festival, set for Oct. 13-17, the event features several United States and world premieres in theater, music and dance. Opening night festivities alone include four premieres at the Florida State University and Ringling Museum campus.
That evening will feature the much anticipated “Solos with Mikhail Baryshnikov and David Neumann” with a world premiere dance choreographed by Susan Marshall and the world premiere of “Capricho” by Florida native and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz."
Baryshnikov will appear October 13, 14, and 15, according to the Ringling web site:

"Mikhail Baryshnikov, the dancer who stirred the imagination of the world, will arrive in Israel for the first time in June, for three performances with dancer/choreographer Ana Laguna. The Suzanne Dellal Centre, recent recipient of the Israel Prize, will host the virtuoso dancers on June 26 and they will perform at the Herzliya Performing Arts Center on June 28 & 29. The exciting evening of dance, “Three Solos and a Duet” will feature the works of contemporary choreographers Mats Ek, Alexei Ratmansky and Benjamin Millepied:

[This one mentions performances later this year in Israel and Paris, but no hints about additional performances that we didn't already know about.]

". . . Occasion Piece2 incorporates Cunningham's choreography spanning decades and featuring Cunningham solos performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov for the first time.
"It is always an honor to be performing in the work of the great Merce Cunningham--my dear friend who taught me so much about life and art," said Mr. Baryshnikov, who performed alongside the choreographer in Occasion Piece (1999). "I am thrilled to be a part of the historic Legacy Tour and to share the stage with all these brilliant dancers." On Monday, Baryshnikov performed alongside fifteen members of the MCDC, with music by John Cage from Song Books, costumes by Anna Fink and lighting by Christine Shallenberg."
The review from the Los Angeles Times:
". . . Baryshnikov danced but three short Cunningham solos in the 35-minute "Occasion Piece2," which was assembled for this evening. If he was the center of attention, that was not because he tried to steal the show. Nor was it that Misha tried to be Merce.
But at 62, Baryshnikov is the perfect mature Merce dancer. He draws your gaze to the movement of every part of his body, infusing the waving his arms or lifting a chair with expression. The current Cunningham dancers — young and appearing as if genetically fashioned to bring Cunningham movement into being — of course enchant. But the combination of Baryshnikov's personality, experience and technique, placed at the service of Cunningham, best demonstrates how the work may continue. . . "
