Thanks, all. Happy to see the return of Balanchine rarities Porte et un Soupir and Ivesiana, plus Danses Concertantes, which we'll also see in DC with the Farrell troupe, in the fall.

Amazingly enough, the company did not raise the subscription renewal prices. Could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that.Posted Image

Actually, I'm not sure that's correct, susanger. They raised the subscription price from $49 to $51 for one section. I know my subscription ticket price thiis season for those tickets was $49. Also, I believe they raised the price in second highest category from $102 or $103 last season to $108 next season. The price level that I'm sure remained the same was the $26 section (full price $29).

I've been waiting for them to bring back Red Angels. Two weeks of Sleeping Beauty? Sounds like a bit much. I guess it sells. It's also interesting that they are bringing back Rubies and Diamonds on different programs. They've never split up Jewels before, to my knowledge. I know many companies only do Rubies. I've never heard of a stand-alone Diamonds, but I'm not complaining because I enjoy that ballet.

So they didn't disappoint me. They did raise the prices. Thankfully, I have a $26 subscription.

They also seem to have reinstated the block programming, at least for the Fall Season. Each season also has a night when all tickets are $29. The programs seem to be designed to tell the old-time NYCB audience, "Not for you."

They've never split up Jewels before, to my knowledge. I know many companies only do Rubies. I've never heard of a stand-alone Diamonds, but I'm not complaining because I enjoy that ballet.

On special occasions, Diamonds, for instance, has appeared on an All-Tchaikovsky program or Rubies on an All-Stravinsky. I've never seen Emeralds except within the context of the full Jewels.

They've also posted a notice, "Because we are currently in website redevelopment, subscription orders (renewals and new subscriptions) are not available online at this time." Maybe visitors to the site will find some of those much-discussed, hoped-for features.

I'm eager to hear the fate of Society NYCB , nee Fourth Ring Society. :beg:

One of the worst atrocities of the Martins reign of terror, back again--just when you thought it was safe to breathe a sigh of relief at the demise of 'block programming.' Posted Image Posted Image
Not just designed to tell the 'old-time' NYCB audience 'not for you', but any audience with taste and standards. That sort of audience, of course, does not interest Martins.
abatt, I believe Ballet West did Emeralds alone a couple of years ago (very bizarre thought, isn't that?), and several companies have done Diamonds on all-Tchaik programs, sometimes all-Balanchine Tchaik as well.

Several companies do Rubies on its own (PNB got it first, and didn't add any of the other sections for several years after that), and I have seen some programs with just Diamonds (PNB is doing it on an all-Tschaikovsky program next spring). And I think that Oregon Ballet Theater performed Emeralds on its own last year, though I can't remember exactly when.

It seems that most companies that learn Jewels do it one section at a time, rather than adding the entire ballet from scratch. (rather like Seattle Opera's Ring cycle, which they staged over 4 years -- like those old "add a pearl" necklaces.)

No Concerto Barocco? No Four Temperaments? No Square Dance?

So much for working from memory -- it is not an "all-Tschaikovsky" program. That was at least two versions of the season schedule ago...

Miami City Ballet danced it alone at Wolf Trap in '92.

Unless I'm mistaken - and I have no problem with correction - but this the first time I've ever seen an "ALL MARTINS" program.

On Tuesday, May 14th and on Saturday, May 18th at 2pm we'll be having:

Calcium Light Night
River of Light
Barber Violin Concerto
Fearful Symmetries

Pretty gusty I guess. At least he seemed to have put together some of his "best" ballets on the program. It certainly will be interesting to see how many seats will be filled on the days of those performances.

[size=5]When I saw the All Martins program, I thought they had a lot of chutzpah to do that. Yes, we'll see how many tickets sell for that one. I guess Martins thought that since Wheeldon had an All Wheeldon program at NYCB, Martins deserved one also.[/size]
