The best part: a live orchestra for the Repertory Series!!! At the "Fancy Footwork" exhibition, Gil Boggs said that he in fact has danced in Tetley's The Rite of Spring (presumably when ABT performed it at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in January, 1993).

Now, on to the 2012-2013 season announcement, which I expect will be posted by the time this message is posted on Ballet Alert. I don't want to spread any "gossip", So I will merely report that at this moment, the home page shows the words "2012-2013 Season Announcement", Then, in larger type, the words "(hint hint)". Then, a photograph: a young woman with a crown on her head lies sleeping on a bed; a young man is leaning toward the young woman (maybe he is planning to wake her with a kiss, how romantic!); and a number of concerned-looking people are clustered around.


The CB web site currently lists 2 fewer dancers than were in last year's company. I believe that the company has re-grouped (the first performance is less than 4 weeks away), so either they are slow in adding the replacement dancers to the web site or they are going to go with fewer dancers this year. According to the web site, auditions for this season were held back in January and February. The 2 dancers who left are the only changes to the roster that have been shown; the 28 dancers currently listed are all back from last year..

The season opener is tonight, and I now see 29 dancers listed. Three are new names, so two additional dancers must have left (but I haven't identified them yet). Adam Still was rewarded for his strong performances last year, including playing Peter Pan in the 'A' lineup, with a promotion to soloist.
