Best news in a long time.  I wonder what (if anything) will be bumped to accommodate the Trilogy.  

 

Now to start saving the pennies for multiple performances.

They may not bump anything - just add a 9th program that could be shorter in length, or overlap with another program. Personally I like it when the programs overlap because it gives me a better chance to see 2 programs.

 

How about placing a short program between 4 and 5 and overlapping with 4?

Not sure how well that would work:  subscribers have already ordered/paid for an 8-program season.  If a couple of performances are added outside the subscription series, a lot of subscribers will be left out (and not happy).  If a whole program is added to the subscription, they will have to go back to subscribers for more money.  Guess we'll have to wait and see.

A shame that the MacMillan and Kobborg are being removed - I thought that would be an interesting program. And they did The 4 T's recently (2012?), so it would be nice to see something more rare from Balanchine's repetoire.

We don't get to see much MacMillan in the US, except the big blockbusters like Manon and R&J -- I'm sorry that the shorter works don't get as much attention.

They did MacMillan's Winter Dreams quite well a few seasons back, and then it disappeared after one season.

That was a lovely production, wasn't it, Josette? And one of MacMillan's best ballets. Expensive, what with the set, the costumes, the onstage musicians playing exotic instruments, but still....

jsmu- I saw both " Winter Dreams" casts and enjoyed seeing how beautifully the dancers handled their roles. It was the first time I saw Vito Mazzeo.
