Dear Estelle and Ann,

Some casting news for Edinburgh:

Kistler will dance Duo Concertante and 2nd movement of Symphony in C;

Van Kipnis is back and cast frequently;

Ringer is scheduled to debut in 2nd movement in Western Symphony;

Boal and Whelan are scheduled for Tsch. Pas.

Should be a good week.

Estelle - regarding casting:

I know Peter Boal is doing four ballets while there (but I can't recall which!) I know he's doing first pas de trois in Agon and one of the men in Dances at a Gathering. From looking at the announced rep my guess is he'd be doing Melancholic in Four Temperaments and either Symphony in C (third movement is his usual) or Western Symphony.

He also mentioned to me that Kistler is doing Duo Concertant. She's given me a lump in my throat more than once in this role. I don't know her present state of health, but you ought to see this.

Thanks to you all for the information about the castings! The casts are on the NYCB web site indeed, and also those for their Japanese tour later in August.

Kistler will dance the second movement of "Symphony in C" indeed. But I won't see her in that role, since she isn't cast on Aug 17 (or perhaps I'll convince my boyfriend to attend a fourth performance on Aug 19 evening! Posted Image ) She'll also dance in "Duo Concertant" (partnered by Nilas Martins) on
Aug 15 and 18, I'm loking forward to seeing her.

The casts for "Symphony in C" are:

Symphony in C:
2nd Mov.: KISTLER, ASKEGARD (14,19)
4th Mov.: *A. STAFFORD, EVANS (14, 19)

What is the order of the roles listed for "Agon"? Is it pas de deux- male soloist- female soloist- females of the pas de trois- males of the pas de trois?

Peter Boal is scheduled in "Agon" (14, 17), "The Four Temperaments" (18), "Tchaikovsky pas de deux" (19 matinee- with Whelan, as liebs wrote, the other cast is Whelan- Woetzel) and "Dances at a gathering" (19 evening). I'm so glad to be able to see him before he retires!

I'm also glad to see Kyra Nichols (she'll dance in "Serenade" and "Dances at a gathering"). Leigh, you'll probably be happy to notice that Miranda Weese will perform in "The Four Temperaments" and "Fearful symmetries" there.

Well, all that makes me feel very enthusiastic, I'm looking forward to being there!

Estelle, I would love to see you in Edinburgh. I shall be there for the two Saturday peformances - front balconey for the afternoon performances and stalls for the evening performances.

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful towns in Europe. I hope you get a chance to see some of it!
