Lincoln Center does not fall within Maloney's district, but ABT's studios and offices probably do, so you're right, Jayne, it's not a bad contact to have.

The way I look at it having someone in Washington being aware of the arts is a good thing. I'm old enough to remember when funding for the arts was in the public discussion as a good thing. Hard to believe right now.

Slightly off topic. Shklyarov has been plaza hopping, he was sighted at the Met on Mon. for the Shostakovich Trilogy, at NYCB Tue., and again at the Met on Wed. for Corsaire.

I suspect that he might be in town to rehearse Ratmansky's Cinderella, prior to the filming of that ballet at the Mariinsky II later this month (see Mariinsky playbills for June...two performances of Vishneva/Schklyarov in Cinderella, for filming). Of course, what he does in his own time is his business. Posted Image

So, this must mean Hammoudi is injured. Anyone heard anything?

He's currently listed for the 5 July "Sleeping Beauty" with Murphy.

If he's removed from the schedule and/or there's an official source for an update, it can be posted here.


Hammoudi is replaced by Stearns in SB on July 5, per ABT casting sheet updates in the Met lobby.

The ABT web site calendar has not yet been updated for this. Does the posted casting sheet say anything about Cojocaru's Sleeping Beauty on July 3? That would be her only performance of the season if she makes it.

The most recent casting sheet that I saw over the weekend still lists Cojocaru for SB.

The Hamburg Ballet has just published a whole bunch of cast changes for June, but Cojocaru's appearances there on June 25 & 30 are still scheduled.

The casting sheet at the lobby still lists Cojocaru's SB on 7/3 as of last night.

Underwood did a wonderful job as one of the Odalisques in Corsaire last week.

Excellent - now I wish they'd post Blue Bird pas.

I am expecting Simkin's Blue Bird. Is it too far-fetched to cast Vasiliev as BB? I've seen some old Bolshoi footages where the BB's thighs & legs were as muscular as Vasiliev's

Vasiliev as BB is not far fetched at all. In fact, the Ardani website indicates that Vasiliev will perform BB on July 1 (opening night of SB) and July 3. That info has been on the Ardani website for a few months, (No info on whether that means July 3 matinee or July 3 evening.) I'd bet Simkin does BB on July 2. Sometimes Simkin posts his schedule on his website or facebook page. I didn't look there.
