"Misty has asked that I convey a message on her behalf. It gives her great sadness that due to an injury, she is unable to complete the remainder of her Metropolitan Opera House Performance Season. It is very important to her to make sure that any of her fans who purchased tickets specifically to see her are aware that she won’t be performing. She expresses her deep appreciation and gratitude for your unending loyalty and support."
Planned to see her (and others) in Firebird this weekend and am very disappointed...Of course I am accustomed to the vagaries of dancers' injuries/illnesses and what they mean for casting, but it's still a bummer.
Anyway, best thoughts to Copeland for a full recovery.
(I will say that when I made my plans to come to NY this weekend, my feeling was that three performances of The Dream would be a win-win-win proposition whatever happened w. Firebird and even whatever happened w. casting--not to tempt the ballet gods or anything. I'm very eager to see Hallberg-Murphy in the Dream to say nothing of Cornejo.)

darn, this working full time and not being the recipient of a major trust fund is starting to interfere with my ballet recreation plans!
Work, in fact, will prevent me from seeing any Paris Opera Ballet performances much to my great distress!
I wanted to return this week to see both the new Ratmansky Firebird and The Dream (one of my favorite ballets but not one i have seen that often); several of the scheduled dancers interested me as well -- Copeland among them.

No info on Copeland's replacement as Gulnare during the Corsaire run.
