She was the Czardas lead. That kind of dancing had never been a big thrill for me until I saw her. She was amazing. So full of energy and passion.

Not sure Raymonda is a big seller among all but insular ballet groupies. It is one thing to see Sergeyev at 38 dancing with Dudinskaya at 36 in filmed excerpts of the dream scene in Act I and the marriage divertissement which closes the ballet produced more than 65 years ago. It is quite another for general audiences to experience a tale of often slow moving medieval chivalry with a danseur who does not have too many appearances during the entire stage time to not that generally in the public domain Glazounov music. The excerpts and the full length ballet are more specialty pieces for a specific ballet audience.

There is some additional casting info on the ABT website re the Fall performances, such as the women cast in Fancy Free and the casts for Thirteen Diversions.
Hallberg's replacement for Raymonda Variations is Hammoudi.

I think someone forgot to update the when they updated the calendar. I'm assuming it will be Hammoudi Maybe the same person who updates the calendar is also responsible for neglecting to put Boylston's name/photo in the promotional materials with the other principal dancers. I would hate to think that incompetence was so prevalent.
