Callie Bachman, Stephanie Chrosniak, Vincent Paradiso, Shoshana Rosenfield, Stephanie Zungre.
The apprentices are now listed. That's so nice.
No new promotions....that leaves 2 female soloists
Noticed there are videos attached to some of the dancers when you click on their names.

Adam Hendrickson retired, as noted on a previous thread.
I'm surprised about Callie Bachman. Didn't Martins create R&J on her when she was at SAB? She had a lot of promise, but once she got into the company her career seemed to fizzle out.

My only beef: why oh why must these sites insist on bombarding our browsers with all that annoying java scriptage ... ugh. Something like 32 scripts tried to load when I first clicked on the site. For those of us who either must or choose to routinely block scripts for security reasons, it's a real pain.
And I'm always sad to see names missing from the roster, even though after 30+ years of following the company you'd think I'd have grown used to it by now. It always feels like a friend -- or at least a friendly face -- has suddenly moved someplace far away before I could say goodbye.

It does look great! Other missing names are ...
Hmmm ... it looks as if some of the repertory is missing as well. Um, where have "Dances at a Gathering," "In the Night," "Divertimento No. 15," and "Scotch Symphony" gone?

That overview is a nice way for out-of-towners to plan trips to see favorite ballets, but it would be nice to be able to check back before buying any tickets to see if anything has changed.
(I find much of the type very small and very hard to read against the varying background colors. Pale blue type against medium blue background? I could change the settings on my browser, but that shouldn't be necessary.)

Thanks - I just found it on this page, under "review your performances":
California, the pdf for the upcoming season is on the website, but it's harder to locate. I think I clicked on the subscribe option, and eventually came upon the pdf link.

Does anyone know if the new website will have a Select Your Own Seats option, showing all available seats in each section and allowing a ticket purchaser to select particular seats (the way City Center, the Met Opera and Ticketmaster do)?
I found a promising hint on the new web site:
As of September 5, you may place your order and select your own seats for Create-You[sic]-Own Series online.
Single tickets go on sale Monday, August 6, so we'll find out then if you can select your own seats for those, too. That would be such a huge improvement from the old system!
Doesn't it seem odd that Create-You[sic]-Own has to wait almost a month after single tickets go on sale?
