The demons were definitely at the helm when the casting decisions were made. Boylston, rather than Abrera, who is the most deserving of the ABT dancers for the role, gets to dance Giselle? What were they thinking? Part gets the Wednesday matinee Swan Lake, whereas Seo gets the Saturday night performance with Bolle? Abrera doesn't even get a Cinderella? Adding insult to injury, Waelsung, I truly doubt that coincidence has given Part all matinees, but I can't for the life of me figure out why.
On the plus side, I'm sure that the Lane/Cornejo Theme and Variations will be a "don't miss." I'm also glad that Lane gets a Coppelia.
But from my perspective, there isn't a great deal to look forward to at this point in the upcoming season. I do plan to see the Kajiya/Gorak Coppelia just to end a bitter season with some sweetness.
As an aside, and I realize that it's simply a typo, but did you notice that in the June 28th performance Hallberg is dancing Odette-Odile and Semionova is dancing Siegfried?
