2013-14 season announcement

105 posts in this topic

I am in NY this weekend for NYCB and went to box office to buy an additional series directly AND ask as innocently as possible about other tickets. The person at the box office was perfectly polite but entirely strict about buying "packages" only. I am pretty frustrated -- but I would be much less so if I could at least believe everyone was being treated the same...

I expect Spartacus to sell out or nearly so--for many people it IS the Bolshoi. But though I'm throwing all of my post January Ballet budget at the company (though I plan to skip Spartacus), I could very much wish they had decided to include at least one "riskier" item--Lost Illusions or Esmerelda. With Obraztsova and Hallberg I would even have been thrilled to see Marco Spada. It's especially puzzling since the Bolshoi is surely never a hard sell and in the wake of recent scandals will presumably be less of a hard sell than ever.

Wanted to add postscript to my last post to say of course, I'm very thrilled that (barring unexpected occurences) I will have the chance to see the Bolshoi at all!

I understand your feelings, Drew. I too think they have a very wide-ranging and interesting repertory that they are not bringing over. I'd love to see Marco Spado or Lost Illusions. And I saw Flames of Paris last summer and thought it was great (though they've been touring with that recently - have they brought it to the US already?).

But I'm so excited about Spartacus! I'm writing a chapter on it right now, so seeing it in person this summer will be delightful.
