The Tatianas last time around were Kent, Dvorovenko, Jaffe, and Ferri...that leaves one more potential spot for another Tatiana (after Kent, Dvorovenko, and Vishneva). Wonder who it could be...I assume Reid Anderson already made his choices if Vishneva is saying she will be cast. Looking at the cast lists from before the men are wide open (except Corella and Beloserkovsky did Lensky--though it's a crapshoot whether either of them would be cast again, esp. Beloserkovsky) and Riccetto and Reyes did Olga. It's interesting to think about this one as Anderson gets to choose, so we may be in for some unexpected choices!


I hope Part gets cast as the Firebird. The wingspan alone would be to die for.

Bright Stream
La Bayadere
Onegin
Firebird mixed reps
Corsaire
Giselle
Swan Lake
R&J

The list is not my wish list, the info came from current & future company members. I expect to see Vishneva/Gomes in Onegin and pairing of O/V. So the only room left for wish list is the Firebird mixed reps program and castings. FB could be paired with a longer ballet like the Dream or Ballet Imperial or 2 shorter ones like T&V, Dumbarton, 13 Diversions or both with rotation of different pieces with FB as the closing ballet or may be an all Stravinsky program....

Thanks for clarifying your initial post. Although i'm glad that Onegin is coming back, I'm a bit disappointed that La Fille...is not in the list.

If i am not mistaken, Marcelo did Onegin for 1 performance the last time around . David would be interesting as Onegin although he is more of a Lensky type. E Tamm /A Hammoudi would be possible Lenskys. Olga? -- Sarah/isabella,h seo ? Any suggestions?

R. Bolle performed it at La Scala, so it is in his repertoire.

Semionova and Cojocaru (and Kobborg) also have it in their reps, if any of them will be back. If youtube clips are to be believed, Cojocaru/Kobborg are superb.

I think Hallberg would make a good Lensky...that adagio solo would fit him beautifully. I don't see Herrera or Murphy getting cast as either Tatiana or Olga. Part would temperamentally fit Tatiana, but could only be partnered with Bolle most likely.

Caroline Duprot and Gemma Bond both danced Olga with the Royal.



edit: Yes bingham you are right about Marcelo...I was looking at the original press release of casting, and I think he ended up substituting at the last minute.

I don't know if anybody can "be back for Onegin": it seems that Reid Anderson politic is to have only Stuttgart dancers as guests in Onegin (in La Scala we had Eichwald dancing with Bolle... not shows worth to remember, IMO).

Cojocaru/Kobborg clips on youtube were filmed in June 2004, seven years and 6 shows ago so you cannot really believe to them: Cojocaru and Kobborg were great, but they are even better now! :clapping: They were fantastic in October in London and also in June in Antwerp. Their guesting with Royal Ballet of Flanders seems to be against "Onegin guesting rules": I don't know if it was because it was a benefit show for RBF (they danced for free) or just a kind concession for really deserved "artistic merits"....anyway a fantastic night for Antwerp ballet audience (and additional people coming from abroad :wink: )!

Cojocaru/Kobborg and Gomes as Onegin would be good reason to travel to NYC from Europe! (I should start saving money from now :D )

Caroline Duprot and Gemma Bond both danced Olga with the Royal.

I really loved Duprot Olga, probably she is still my favorite

I believe David will be dancing the Prince according to the SCFTA brochure: http://www.scfta.org...e-0312-abt.html So then Marcelo will probably be the evil Kashchei?
