2010-2011 Calendar is up!
Posted 16 August 2010 - 06:06 AM
She's put up every performance she can find -- there are a few companies who haven't posted their seasons yet. We don't list Nutcrackers, because if we did the Calendar would explode in December. There may be a few typos (no need to point them out )
You'll notice, at the bottom left of the board, that Calendar listings for each day will be visible there, so it's a wonderful way for all of us to keep up with what's going on in ballet. And of course, if you're planning a trip to San Francisco in March, or want to see what Miami City Balletl is doing in October, you can find out and either get on a plane or live vicatiously.
It's a humongous effort, and I'm very;, very;, VERY grateful to Helene for doing this.
Brace. Here are the companies listed:
Birmingham Royal Ballet
Estonian National Ballet (through 2010)
Kansas City Ballet
Miami City Ballet
Oregon Ballet Theatre
Paris Opera Ballet
Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre
St. Louis Ballet
Texas Ballet Theatre
RDB -- TBA which days which ballet
Suzanne Farrell Ballet
Ballet Nacional de Cuba
Tour de Force II
Ballet Nacional de Cuba
Hamburg Ballet -- Paris Opera performances only

About typos, I know there are some formatting errors, and sometimes not all of the dates are listed in the early postings. For example, the Bolshoi is only up to December, and when they add performances for "Swan Lake" later in the year, I only add the new dates to the later items, and don't update the earlier ones.
Also, sometimes I forget to change the year, and a performance might end up in April 2010 instead of April 2011, for example. If anyone catches wrong info, please let me know, via PM or through the "Contact Us" link at the top of the page.
I'll keep checking the websites of the companies that don't have complete info up and add it in.
The good news is that the ballet season has already started!

It's a thing of beauty -- just like the site upgrade! Thank you! I know it's going to take time and effort to keep it up-to-date, so thanks in advance for that, too!
You need to clue us in on your vitamin regimen or preferred energy drink or whatever it was that fueled you through an effort like this. I promise to buy a case through the Amazon link.

On a selfish note, as I am moving to Italy, any plans to add La Scala or the balletto dell'opera di Roma? I know that Silvia is happening in Rome in October with guests including Bouder and Semionova (though I can't find who is what date!)

We rarely expand the list; Corella Ballet is an exception this year, although not yet done, as it has become the major ballet company in Spain and was created by a dancer in whom there has been significant interest. There are several other companies that have been on the Calendar in past years (Malakhov's Berlin Ballet, for example) that will be added as information becomes available on their website (or in a usable way).
