    Ratmansky's Paquita

    It's cruel and crude to totally trash a perfectly fine production, seems to me it's out of spite. Is there known animosity between Ratmansky and Zelensky?
  2. Anyone know whether live orchestra or canned music will be used in Saratoga?

    Ratmansky's Paquita

    Are you sure the Ratmansky Bayadere for Berlin is a recon? I've heard otherwise.
  4. From the description "will present ballets both made at City Center and popular works performed as part of New York City Ballet’s regular seasons at our historic theater from 1948 – 1964." That means ballets will be limited to pre-1965, Not a complaint, just so we can dream of the fantasy programs within this perimeter. ABT will compete with itself in the fall season.

    2018 Met Season

    I just received my subscription ticket with a note that 5/18 and 5/21 are not available for exchange. Priority exchange week: 3/18-3/24.
  8. I noticed the ticket sales are much slower than usual, there're still plenty of excellent seats available for the gala and the reconstructed Beauty. Must be due to the 50% price hike, no doubt.

    ABT in Detroit, Feb. 8-11, 2018

    Mariinsky stayed at Brooklyn Marriott when they were at BAM. POB at Le Meridien. Bolshoi at Sheraton on 7tn Ave. Mikhailovsky at Holiday Inn now the Watson on W57th.
  10. Seeing the 4-hour plus reconstructed Beauty alone is worth the entire trip. While Bayadere is listed as the Soviet version. https://www.mariinsky.ru/en/playbill/playbill/2018/3/8/1_1900

    2018-19 Season

    Covent Garden is more like a House of McGregor-Wheeldon-Scarlett nowadays.
  12. Sarasota will return to Joyce as part of the ballet festival with mixed programs of Ashton, Balanchine, de Valois, Tharp, Bintley, Wheeldon, and Bourne. https://www.joyce.org/performances/sarasota-ballet

    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Peter Boal would be a top contender should Martin step down.

    Fall 2017 Season

    2018 LSF will bring in POB, so I doubt it will present another classical company. However, don't rule out Joyce, as it has brought RB, MCB, NB Canada, Joffrey, and SFB to the State Theater in the past few years.
