    I saw McRae dance in Don Q and Giselle and adored him in both.
  2. Veronika Part leaving ABT

    I was hoping to report on this, but we wound up skipping the performance at the last minute due to the lousy weather. It didn’t help that we’re unfamiliar with the area, and weren’t sure how far we’d have to park from the venue and walk in the pouring rain. Of course, now we’re sorry that we missed it.

    Thank you nanushka! I just ordered tickets!
  4. 2017 Fall Season

    Cortege Hongrois is actually one of "my" personal favorites. I'll never forget the first time I saw the ballet with then corps member Damian Woetzel. He totally blew me away. Anyway, I'm so glad you enjoyed the program. I'm looking forward to seeing it next week.

    $185 is the regular price for NYCB's best orchestra seats. I've never seen dynamic pricing at NYCB, however it is standard practice when ABT performs at the MET.
  6. 2018 Spring Season

    I guess to each his/her own. I'm actually very excited about the new ballet.

    How strange. When I click on your link, I get Duo at the end of the program. When I access the pdf directly from NYCB's website I get Duo sandwiched between two ballets. The only difference I can see in the URL is that the one below appears to be version V19. Could that have superseded V18? http://www.nycballet.com/NYCB/media/NYCBMediaLibrary/PDFs/SubscriptionDocuments/3517-FY18-FallCalendar_V19.pdf

    Looks like Fourth Ring rows A and B just opened for Sunday, Oct 15.
  9. Robert Fairchild leaving NYCB

    I just received an e-mail from NYCB as follows: News Alert It has just been announced that Principal Dancer Robert Fairchild, who took leave of absence from NYCB to make his Broadway and West End debuts in An American in Paris, has decided to conclude his New York City Ballet career this fall to pursue other opportunities in musical theater and film. Robert Fairchild and Sterling Hyltin in Duo Concertant In celebration of Robert's NYCB career, Peter Martins has added Duo Concertant to the All Balanchine program on the final two matinees of the fall, where Robert is scheduled to appear alongside Principal Dancer Sterling Hyltin. We anticipate high demand for these performances, and we encourage you to purchase tickets now if you would like to be in attendance. We hope you’ll join us in thanking Robert for sharing his extraordinary talent while at NYCB, and in wishing him the best as he moves on to the next phase of his career.

    Yes, I agree that they must have added it for him. I didn't even realize that it wasn't part of the original program until you mentioned it.

    I can't say it is a total surprise either, but I had hoped he'd do a few more seasons before a total departure. I'm so glad that I already have tickets for one of his last performances.
  12. Robert Fairchild leaving NYCB

    Per today's NY Times, Robert Fairchild is leaving NYCB. His final performances are the matinees of Oct. 14 and 15, dancing “Duo Concertant,” with Sterling Hyltin. I am so upset. First Simkin at ABT, and now Robbie!
  13. I am so upset about Simkin's departure. Since this is effective for 2018/2019, I am keeping my fingers crossed that he dances a full 2018 MET season. I was looking at the Staatballett Berlin website, and it looks like their spring seasons overlap, so I don't know how much he would/could be available to dance at ABT.

    Ditto. I agree about it being really creepy.
  15. 2017 Fall Season

    I just got an e-mail with the casting as well! I'm so excited!
