     In the recently updated Dancer Roster, N Osipova's picture is missing. Does this means that she will not be dancing with ABT next season? Ivan Vasiliev is still listed as a principal dancer.Many corp de ballet dancers are also missing. Among them R Pavan,M Ilyin and R Doble.

Thanks for the heads-up. I see many changes, but wonder if somebody with an accurate list could tell us who all has disappeared, especially from the corps, and perhaps where they went (if anybody knows). Messmer is missing, as is Dvororenko.  Cojocaru is missing, but I'm not sure she was ever listed. Vishneva is listed.

Simone Messmer left for San Francisco Ballet. Irina Dvorovenko 'retired' from ABT to pursue other projects (dance/acting).

The following corps members from the Met 2013 season program are no longer listed on the web site: Roddy Doble, Mikhail Ilyin, Vitali Krauchenka, Renata Pavam, Sem Sjouke, Bryn Watkins, Katherine Williams

 

Just curious if anybody knows where they went. I hope they all landed on their feet, so to speak!

 

I'm not seeing any promotions from corps to soloist or soloist to principal, but perhaps that would be announced separately in a press release, if any happen.

I was hoping some promotions would be announced by now.  I hope some are forthcoming.

Cojocaru was never listed as a principal - only a guest artist.  I suspect she would continue to guest w. ABT.  If Osipova is no longer performing w. ABT, that will be a real loss of $$$$ for ABT.   Osipova, I believe, was someone who definitely boosted ticket sales..Maybe she will be a guest artist, and come in for 1 or 2 shows.  I get the feeling that we'll be seeing more of Kochetkova.

For this viewer at least, not just a loss of $$$, but of artistry and excitement. I certainly hope Cojocaru and Osipova continue to make guest appearances.

Renata Pavam's bio on her photography website (Renata Pavam Photography) states she is a former ballerina with ABT.

 

www.renatapavam.com

 

 

Renata is a former Ballerina with American Ballet Theatre, where she worked for 12 years, and where she developed her passion for photography. She’s had her work published on Dance Magazine, The New York Post, and the Huffington Post

When Alina joined the ENB, she stated that she will continue to dance with ABT and Hamburg Ballet. Maybe, we will finally see Evgenia Obrastzova . She looked wonderful dancing Tatiana with David Hallberg at the Bolshoi.

Only public-facing official news, please, with a link or source, on new news about what dancers removed from the ABT website roster are now up to.  (The Messmer and Dvorovenko news has already been substantiated in press releases.)

In my opinion, Evgenia Obrastzova is not a suitable guest for ABT. I saw her performance in Onegin with Hallberg at Bolshoi (live) but her old-style dancing was not suited to the role and there was desperate lack of chemistry. And she is too short for David. 

 

She is a good dancer but mainly a Romantic style ballerina suited for La Sylphide and ABT doesn't have so much romantic style ballets. She did not dance Swan Lake while she was in Mariinsky as her limbs are short. There are many good shortish ballerinas in ABT such as Sarah Lane.

That's interesting about Obraztsova in "Onegin," because Reid Anderson was very specific about which dancers he felt were suitable Tatianas, and Zakharova walked because she wasn't cast as Tatiana on opening night.
