I was surprised to see that Sean Lavery and Merrill Ashley are no longer listed in the company roster in this season's Playbill. Does anyone have any sourced information about this?

Sean Lavery has always been Peter Martins' key assistant - I don't know the title, but he seemed to be second in command and had responsibility for devising the repertoire for the season. He also led a panel last year on Balanchine's birthday. That he has lost this job is puzzling to me.
