I love the Suzanne Farrell Ballet program of Swan Lake, Allegro Brilliante, Monumentum pro Gesualdo/Movements for Piano and Orchestra, and The Concert. Except for Monumentum/Movements, I believe those are all company premieres. I know they haven't danced them at the Kennedy Center. 

 

But it's surprising to see that the season is only three days long, down from five days in previous seasons.

ABT will be doing Pillar of Fire and Push Comes to Shove.  So, I'm going to hope/assume (with glee) that they'll be reviving those ballets for their Met season that summer!

If they are going to Tudor, I was hoping for Leaves are Fading or Lilac Garden.

And kfc, it's also Thanksgiving weekend. I would have gone down to DC for that but I don't want to pay inflated holiday prices for transportation/hotel.

Or they could be for the fall season.

It is surprising.  On the other hand, the performances are in the Opera House (not the Eisenhower Theater).

Oh, I see. Because Little Dancer will be in the Eisenhower. So quite possibly in 2015 they'll be back in the Eisenhower for the usual five-day, two-program run. I hope so. On the other hand, this year I can catch both SFB and Little Dancer in one trip. 

 

Bummer, Dale. Sorry you'll have to miss it.

Here's some more info on "Little Dancer", the Susan Stroman project which will star NYCB's Tiler Peck.  Apparently musical theater actor Jason Danieley will co-star.

I hope this comes to NYC eventually.
