With kfw, I am, as always, looking forward to TSFB's too-short season in November; and I've just put together an expedition to Fort Lauderdale to have a look at Merrill Ashley's staging of Ballo della Regina on MCB, on a program with Serenade and Wheeldon's Polyphonia, in October. Maybe I'll go back in January to see if their realization of Balanchine's Nutcracker still has the vitality it had in 2011, when it benefitted so much from comparison with the NYCB PBS broadcast. (Living in Chicago is apt to give me additional reason to head south that time of year.)
And depending on the repertory, I have in mind the SAB Workshop next Spring. Last time, watching one variation in particular had me at the point of giggling with delight, and the rest of the program wasn't far below. And Ballet Chicago's Nutcracker and Spring Repertory programs I can get to without going through security or getting on an airplane!... Last season, without any fanfare I heard, Simone Messmer, no less, turned up as "Sugar Plum" in their second weekend. Like at SAB, you just gotta be in the right place at the right time.
