    ABT 2018 Giselle

    This is the main problem ABT needs to address and frankly, unless it is resolved properly, McKenzie should be out on his keyster. The 10-15 years of relying on the sensation of Guests Artists hurt ABT immensely and it is just now slowly starting to dig itself out of the hole. But the effects of it will be felt for years.

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    According to Lane’s Instagram stories, she’s got another surprise Peasant Pas this evening. I wonder who she is filling in for...

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    Agree and I still think she would do better at another company where she could get the performance experience she deserves at this point. What company, I don't know. I think she would have done very well at SFB. I know her dream was to be a principal at ABT but now that that dream is realized, she isn't really dancing any more often than she did as a soloist. Maybe less often actually. It's a shame for her and for the audience who loves to see her.

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    It is so infuriating that they have been slotted in matinees the past two years.

    ABT 2018 Giselle

    Glad she's getting the opportunity! She's lovely. And Gabe is fabulous of course.
  6. I would say this is a least a little critical of Misty, considering that her management is the one that has promoted her as the only female principal at ABT. She sought stardom, it's not like the media all of a sudden out of the blue picked this "unknown" soloist and made her a star. She is a self-promoter with her own marketing team (outside of ABT) and so it does reflect badly on her when articles like these appear.

    ABT Fall Season 2018

    I wish they would bring back Demille's Fall River Legend. I'd love to see some of the newer principals get a stab at that (no pun intended).

    Who rules today?

    I would have to say Sarah Lamb of The Royal. I think she can do anything and everything.

    2018 Spring Season

    Tchai Pas has a tendency to be cast with smaller dancers. Mearns is one of the bigger principal women and with the flying fish dives, you need a really strong, tall male to catch a dancer of bigger proportions. Of course, that is not the rule as Kowroski and Reichlen have danced Tchai Pas. But I think Reichlen only recently debuted in this as well?

    Roster Changes Announced Spring 2018

    Wow, how old is he? His ballet career seemed to be on the upward trajectory.

    2018 Spring Season

    I was wondering why Megan Fairchild was absent from the casting sheet for the Spring season. She is pregnant per her Instagram today.
  12. I would go with the Tuesday, if only to see the wonderful Cornejo and Abrera.

    2018 Met Season

    Yes, the problem was the iPhone. Thanks for your help guys!

    2018 Met Season

    What’s the deal with the Met Opera’s online system? I was trying to get Parterre tickets for the Lane/Simkin Giselle and it’s not letting you choose your particular seats, just the section. It also won’t let you see which seats are available or already sold. Is this just because I’m using my iPhone or did they change their system?

    ABT: Roster in Review - 2018

    If they do promote a male to principal, it will probably be Hammoudi. I don't forsee any female soloists making principal for a couple of years at least.
