Well casting has been revised due to major injuries.
Mathias Heymann has a stress fracture and withdrew from all his commitments until next season.
Ludmila Pagliero injured during Manon's rehearsals seems to be out for the tour, although I hope she will be able to dance in Orpheus and Eurydice in New York?
Agnès Letestu and Benjamin Pech both sustained injuries in April. They are probably not well enough for Giselle but might be for less physically demanding roles especially since New York is later in the tour.
I'm much surprised Laëtitia Pujol Posted Image has completely disappeared

An 'alternate answer' to YID's query:

Hmmm...not sure that I would want to see one of the near-retirement dancers in the leads. I'd go for Dorothee Gilbert's Giselle or Ganio's Albrecht. My only Giselle in DC will be tonight's 3rd performance at the Kennedy Center. Yes, it stars one of the 'veteran Giselles' - Dupont - but opposite Ganio's Albrecht and the new 'young couple of choice,' Heloise Bourdon and Axel Ibot, in Peasant pdd. Dupont seems to have maintained her facility after 22 yrs on the roster, e.g., her Psyche last fall was fantastic; Osta so-so. Gillot is one of the best Myrtas ever, even though she, too, is in 'upper 30s.' Let's see how they do tonight.

This seems to be a grand tour of the etoiles who graduated in the 1988-1990 period (LeRiche, Dupont, Osta, Ciaravola, Gillot). Artistry over technical facility....not always a bad thing. Posted Image

I haven't seen most of these dancers, but Gillot is a must-see as Myrtha. You'll gasp as she comes tearing out of the wings. I've seen Giselle a gazillion times and she is Myrtha come to life as never before.

There's a new thread to discuss Paris Opera Ballet at the Kennedy Center:

The casting posted on Lincoln Center website and the one on the playbills are different. Your Ibot is on the playbills but not on the website, so I don't know which one to believe. I just keep my fingers crossed the casting on the playbills are accurate.

Great interview with Aurélie Dupont by Gia Kourlas in Time Out New York: http://www.timeout.c...-shining-etoile

I cannot believe ABT turned her down as a guest! WTF! Ok, maybe not for Onegin (not Dupont's best role IMO), but good grief, get her to guest in another role! What is Kevin McKenzie thinking?

[size=4]As a practical matter, I think ABT is not looking to hire someone who is 39 years old, even if it is for only one ballet. McKenzie seems interested in trying out new talent at ABT where there is a potential for a long term relationship with the company if things work out. I understand that he took on Kobborg, who is no youngster, but that seems to have been part of a package deal to get Cojocaru.Is it customary for a dancer to contact an artistic director to arange a one time guest appearance? That seems like a very bold (crass) move on her part.[/size]
