I think that the fourth listed name may be Lankadem, not Ali.

On a separate note, I'm glad to see that Ivan is being integrated into the ABT roster and dancing with Herrera.

You're right. I could not imagine him dancing Ali.

Apollo - That's kind of out of nowhere isn't it? Sure can't be getting much rehearsal time.

I thought so too...They were supposed to bring Apollo the year the Firebird premiered in SoCal and it got yanked at the last minute, so we'll see. I was really hoping for A Month, but I'm guessing neither Seo nor Kent are making the trip.

Why wouldn't Hee Seo or Kent make the trip? They were cast in Chamber Symphony (though in different casts). Also, I'm assuming that Hee Seo may be given a role as one of the Muses in Apollo. (I think Seo was Polyphemnia during the last ABT run of Apollo.) I'm pretty sure that ABT performed Apollo either last season or the season before. The three Apollos were Gomes, Hallberg and Beletserkovsky.

The answer is, Hee Seo and Roberto Bolle are guesting in Universal Ballet (Korea)'s Onegin on July 7th and 8th

Casting changes due to Stearns' injury.  Forster is replacing Stearns in Symphony in C.  Due to a lack of  a tall partner (apparently), they have removed Part from the Corsaire casting.  Herrera and Vasileiv move into the July 13 evening and Reyes Cornejo move into the July 14 cast as Medora and Conrad.  Joe Phillips replaces Cornejo as Ali.

 

It's interesting that ABT went out of its way to find a short partner for Cornejo for his SL and SB performances, but instead of finding a tall partner for Part in Corsaire, they dropped her from Corsaire and gave her performance to someone else.

Once again, abatt, it's unconscionable.  :-)

I completely agree.  This is terrible news.

I think the circumstances might have differences.   Cornejo was at the Met.  I don't think they bring in guests much, if at all for out of NYC performances.  Also they were trying to replace Cojocaru who was a guest star, so I think they wanted another guest.  This is not a comment on Part's dancing or value, just that there are differences in the situation.

 True, they don't often bring guests in for out of town performances, but that wasn't their only option. There is this guy named Gomes...not to mention Tamm, Forster - or even Whiteside who could have subbed for Stearns.

 

Its very disappointing to see Part pulled from Corsaire but at least there is some good news in the Symphony in C casting. I'm THRILLED to see Forster being given a chance here. Merde to him and I'm hoping for some reports from LA!!!
