You can also secure the first available and then resale it if one suits you better after.

The Paris Opera Ballet has posted casting for the spring run of Manon. The trios of Laëtitia Pujol, Mathieu Ganio and Jérémie Bélingard; Ludmila Pagliero, Florian Magnenet and Audric Bezard; and Eleonora Abbagnato, Josua Hoffalt and Alessio Carbone will get two performances each. Dorothée Gilbert will dance the final performance with François Alu as Lescaut. (Des Grieux as yet unidentified.) But the biggest chunk of performances will be by Aurélie Dupont, Hervé Moreau and Stéphane Bullion on May 6, 8, 12, 14 and the live cinema broadcast on the 18th, her farewell performance, which is already sold out.

A shame not to see Arthur Raveau and Eve Grinsztajn cast for Manon. Similarly with Swan Lake (Laura Hecquet also). I've not been impressed by Millepied's casting yet...

That is a nasty injury. I can only wish as swift as possible a recovery for this very fine dancer.

 

Casting for Lescaut's Mistress has not yet been posted. The company has also not yet posted casting for the overlapping performances of Paquita, which Hecquet danced on tour in Montreal recently.

Arthur Raveau tore his Achilles tendon in Montreal.  He's posted several pictures of his foot in a cast on his Facebook/Instagram/Twitter pages.

 

And Josua Hoffalt has posted the following message (translated from the original French) on his Facebook page:

 

"To my regret, I announce that I will not make my performances of Casse-Noisette, acute tendonitis preventing me from working properly for a while now.  However, I still hope to be present for La Source.  I'll let you know as soon an possible."

Well the only thing that is surprising is that Aurélie Dupont has 5 shows and Dorothée Gilbert only one. The rest is not shameful. There are only 12 shows in this run so it would be difficult to cast a Première danseuse when Etoiles want the role and deserve it.
Up to me Swan Lake casting is much more debatable. I do hope Laura Hecquet will be understudy and perhaps will get the opportunity to dance it, but here again, she's only Sujet, this would have been difficult to cast her when Etoiles want the role, even Aurélie Dupont, 42, could not resist while she has danced  only one run in her carreer...

you may also try the second hand official market called "ticket exchange" on the official POB website. it works quite well.

 

Silvermash -- just a belated thank you for posting this info. I haven't been able to get the ticket I wanted (yet), but knowing I'd be able to re-sell through the ticket exchange gave me the confidence to snatch up another ticket on a date I wasn't sure about. I figured, "If I can't change my plans to use the ticket, at least I will be able to sell it." As it turns out, I *will* be able to use the ticket, and I'm so glad I grabbed it, now that the official web site seems to be picked bare.

In the curiouser and curiouser department:  Arthur Raveau, who simplified his name from Pierre-Arthur Raveau, is now stating on his Facebook page that he wishes to be called Arthur Allard.

He does promise this will be the last time that he changes his name -- it could get very confusing!  He has gotten the plaster off his foot and should begin rehab -- lets hope he is a hard worker!

I'm not unsympathetic to people who adopt stage names. My own surname is difficult for Anglophones, and since I dreaded seeing it misspelled in programs, I performed under a quasi-patronymic once I left school. From time to time dancers still come under pressure to come up with more euphonious stage names. I remember reading that the Royal Ballet encouraged Lauren Cuthbertson to change her name, suggesting that she take her mother's surname instead. But she didn't like the sound of Lauren Lewis, so she stuck with Cuthbertson. I can't help but admire Dawid Trzensimiech for sticking with his name, even though the intricacies of Polish orthography are very confusing to most non-Poles. It does strike me as a little eccentric that Raveau/Allard should change his name at this stage in his career, having already climbed so high up the POB hierarchy with his first surname.

My favorite name-changing story is Merrill Ashley's.  Her name was Linda Merrill, and NYCB allowed a student who graduated into the company ahead of her to change her name to Linda Merrill, even though there was a real Linda Merrill at the top of her class still at SAB.

 

When she was forced to take a different name, she took Ashley, a family name, and realized that the upside was that she was listed at the top of the alphabet in the list of dancers.  M. Allard will have the same advantage.

were any reasons given for the name change?  Did he marry and take his partner's name?
