April 2014 update - The schedule now shows the ballets but only the times for the conference sessions. Hopefully that will be updated soon.

I find it crazy for them to ask us to subscribe without any info at all about what ballets they will perform. I think it would be fine to have a few TBD ballets but SOME of the works should be listed. We shouldn't have to purchase blindly with zero idea of what might play.

I know, Birdsall. However, I am most interested in the four-day symposium, to be be held in the tiny, jewel-box Historic Asolo Theatre, which seats very few. The 3pm films will also be there...I may/may not go to those, depending on whether or not they are novelties. (Hey, my hotel near downtown has a great pool & that's important too.)

 

I'll be in Sarasota next week for the Les Illuminations program. Will 'fish around' for any new details and report here. happy.png

Is that the NYCB on the Ashton promo on the Sarasota website?    The ABT Spring brochure contains a central photo of the Joffrey performing Ashton.  How strange.

I am not sure either what ballets they will be performing but I assume they will be the ones they did last season and this season. Natalia, maybe I will meet you. I teach at SB.

Puppy, you may be confusing the town in upstate NY with the city in central Florida.

 

Thanks, balletgirl22sk. :)

Nat, the picture on the website seen at the link above looks very similar to the one in the recent NYCB Koch program, doesn't it?

Sorry, what link? I don't see any Ashton Cinderella pic that may come from the Joffrey, as you hinted at earlier.

 

As for the Serenade photo at the top of the Sarasota site, I believe that is of the Sarasota Ballet, as Serenade will be danced in next week's program (along with Illuminations and Who Cares?).

The Aston "Cinderella" picture is in the ABT spring ticket brochure that I received in the mail.

I think that "Serenade" picture on the Sarasota site is in a Koch Theatre Fall playbill, too (NYCB or ABT, I would have to check.)

The Serenade picture at the top of the SB website is indeed SB.

Below is the link to a nice preview article of the Ashton/Balanchine program. The opening night (this Friday, Nov 22) coincides with the 100th Birthday of Benjamin Britten, composer of Les Illuminations. So how cool is that?
