The brochure also includes the dates for the Nutcrcacker at BAM: December 7-16, 2012.
Dates for ticket sales for both TBA.
I don't find any of this on the ABT web site yet, but perhaps soon.

Is that correct -- Nutcracker only from Dec 7-16? Only 10 days, and so early in the season?
Posted 20 March 2012 - 03:28 PM
Yes, Nutcracker is December 7-16. No explanation for anything.

Very disappointed by the short City Center "season" too.

I wonder if they are going to shift more of the Nutcracker run to Washington DC.
If so, not at the Kennedy Center, which presents the Ballet West version of Nutcracker next season. ABT's Nut must be traveling somewhere else in late December. (One big plus about having simple sets.)

Also, I just received the NYCB brochure, offering "The Cage". Is this the same ballet that is a retelling of "Giselle" by Robbins (as per one L. Kirsten's books, I think)? I ask because the brochure only describes insects and gender battles.

Also--I'm glad this topic was bumped up as I've got another tibit, and I didn't know where to put it: I was browsing the Antony Tudor Trust website the other day and it says ABT will be doing Leaves are Fading in Fall 2012 (assumingly at City Center). http://www.antonytud.../news/news.html

I was thinking of trying to visit D.C. in October to see the Ratmansky Cinderella, but I gather it's the same week and a new Ratmansky to Shostakovich (plus Tudor) may be more tempting...
