    Isadora starring Natalia Osipova

    I'm with you 1,000%!! It's packaged disappointment or WORSE, like in 2016, when I begrudgingly spent $200 per ticket for Tour de Force III and Vishneva CANCELLED!!!

    Isadora starring Natalia Osipova

    Tickets for Natalia Osipova are on sale now. http://www.scfta.org/home/emails/Isadora1819OnSale/index.html?utm_source=Email_marketing&utm_campaign=Eblast_IsadoraOnSale1&cmp=1&utm_medium=HTMLEmail I would have been first in line if she were coming with Don Q, Flames of Paris, La Fille or ANY other CLASSICAL work. This feels like side-line, experimental type stuff she's trying for fun. Not sure it'll be worth the $200 a real ticket will be worth... The remarkable life of modern dance revolutionary Isadora Duncan is brought center stage in this highly-anticipated WORLD PREMIERE. A California native, Duncan revolutionized the world of Dance, rejecting the formal language of ballet to forge a new art form of modern movement. Her infamous death was as dramatic as her life. Her story is truly one for the stage. Natalia Osipova, today’s prima ballerina and principal dancer with the Royal Ballet, will take a star turn in the title role. “With the explosiveness of her jumps, acting blazingly committed and stratospheric technique, Ms. Osipova has become a startlingly singular artist.” – The New York Times August 10 at 7:30pm; August 11 at 2pm & 7:30pm; August 12 at 1pm Choreography: Vladimir Varnava of the Mariinsky Theatre; Music: Sergei Prokofiev’s Cinderella, performed live by Mikhailovsky Orchestra of St. Petersburg BOX OFFICE NOW OPEN | TICKETS START at $29 Follow us: | Friends of the Center: LEARN MORE To ensure our emails reach your inbox, please add boxoffice@SCFTA.org to your address book. 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626 SCFTA.org | Box Office (714) 556-2787 | Group Sales (714) 755-0236 SEGERSTROM CENTER FOR THE ARTS | CONTACT US | PRIVACY POLICY | EVENTS CALENDAR The Center's International Dance Series is made possible by: AUDREY STEELE BURNAND ENDOWED FUND FOR INTERNATIONAL DANCE THE SEGERSTROM FOUNDATION ENDOWMENT FOR GREAT PERFOMANCES Mrs. Richard Steele, Richard C. and Virginia A.

  3. I've only been attending Ballet since the mid 90's, but individual dancers, instead of companys, have always been my focus. Since no one posts casting until a few weeks before performance (at best), the subscription model always seemed silly to me. This is what frustrates me about LA Ballet. All due respect to BB, but buying a ticket to a show feels like rolling the dice at Caesars Palace to see if you get Petra Conti or Bianca Bulle (LA Ballet NEVER posts casting.) So few people buy subscriptions that getting a decent, last-minute, Prime Orchestra seat isn't very difficult. Of course, this may not be the case in other, more ballet-centric cities.

    ABT in Los Angeles - July 2018

    Why did you have to bring THAT up?!!! I feel like cancelling my subscription support and moving to New Zealand just to spite McKenzie... http://rnzb.org.nz/news/rnzb-welcomes-international-guest-artist-veronika-part-for-dancing-with-mozart-season/

    ABT in Los Angeles - July 2018

    Casting for ABT's La Bayadère at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles is out! Sunday is my huckleberry!!! Teuscher & Shevchenko are the Wonder twins of technique and expressive beauty. Murphy's Gamzatti is brilliant, but I'm going to have to miss it this time. I'm figuring ABT should be strategic and cast Copeland as Nikiya to avoid Gamzatti's fouettés...just saying... PRINCIPAL CASTING Friday, July 13 @ 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14 @ 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 15 @ 2:00 p.m. Isabella Boylston Hee Seo Devon Teuscher Alban Lendorf Cory Stearns Joo Won Ahn Misty Copeland Gillian Murphy Christine Shevchenko Casting subject to change.

    Hello All!

    My name is Leo, I live in LA and I've been an avid Ballet goer for ~20 years. That being said, ballets are few and far between here and good companies are rare visitors. ABT pays a visit annually and more if i'm willing to travel an hour south to the Orange County Performing Arts Center (OCPAC), where ABT recently opened a JKO School satellite. It's also the home of ABT's Nutcracker residence. Colleen Neary's LA Ballet has good moments, but principal losses have turned it into a vehicle for Guest Ballerinas. Not that I'm upset that Petra Conti and Misa Kurananga are here on occasion, but since their website doesn't post casting, buying a ticket feels like dropping $100 coins into a slot machine. There are great moments here, though. Diana Vishneva, The Eifman, and the Mariinsky companies are fairly regular to OCPAC. I grew up dancing Salsa and, at my zenith, was a decent intermediate dancer. Although Salsa as a discipline is a JOKE compared to classical ballet, it did intimately inform me of what my body was capable of doing. This small bit of knowledge has made me appreciate the WONDER that professional ballet dancers become and how difficult it really is to make torturously difficult and intricately complex choreography look effortless. I stare in awe of corps members and the strength, concentration and dedication they posses to express their art at that level. I'm happy to find a place where others think the same way!
