We will be getting two separate programs - the first, all Balanchine, will include Mozartiana, Movements for Piano and Orchestra, an excerpt from Harlequinade, the first two movements of Stravinsky Violin Concerto, and an excerpt from Who Cares.
The second, billed as a Balanchine and Robbins night, will include (the inevitable) Apollo, In the Night, and Interplay.
Scheduled dancers include Wendy Whelan, Tom Gold, Maria Kowroski, Charles Askegard, Miranda Weese, Benjamin Milepied, James Fayette, Jennifer Ringer, Yvonne Borree, Carla Korbes, Faye Arthurs, Dana Hanson, Rachel Rutherford, Mary Helen Bowers, Stephen Hanna, Adam Hendrikson, Stuart Capps (!!) Carrie Lee Riggins, Glenn Keenan, and of course Hubbe himself.

If this is true, I am so glad she's back!

And Rutherford, Whelan and Weese in Apollo should be interesting.

Could you please tell me where the performances will take place as I only live 4 h away from Denmark and would be able to see them dance as well

If you come a week earlier, you can also see stars from the Paris Opera Ballet performing September 14 and 16.

Abbagnato and Muriel Maffre (a Copenhagen favorite, she performed in Tivoli last year) on the women's side and Benjamin Pech, Jérémie Belingaard, Alessio Carbone and Pierre-Francois Vilanoba on the men's side.
The program includes Flames de Paris pas de deux, the Dying Swan, Roland Petit's Ma Pavlova pas de deux en Thaïs, Giselle pas de deux, Forsythe's In The Middle Somewhat Elevated, L'Après-midi d'un faune, Nureyev's Roméo et Juliette balcony scene, Petit's L'Arlésienne and Forsythe's Pas/Parts.

Which "L'Apres-Midi d'un Faune" will it be? (If it Nijinsky's, they'll have to bring quite a lot of sets...)

I can't imagine that they'll bring too many sets....Tivoli performances tend to be a bit low-rent. Last year's performances featured recorded music that sounded like it was coming from an 8-track tape player, circa 1973.

BTW, I will post a review of the Paris Opera Ballet performance September 14 in "Recent Performances".
