    2018 Met Season

    Thank you. I don't think I'll get to see either program.

    2018 Met Season

    Is this the program in which Veronika Part is dancing the role of the ballerina?

    Don Quixote Spring 2018

    Thank you, fondoffouettes and nanushka, that was exactly my question.

    Do you think it was intentional that Teuscher travelled forward during her single fouettes? I was a little worried that she was going to fall off the stage.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    So after all my complaining about Whiteside, and reading about the exceptional debut of Shevchenko in SL, I did buy a ticket to see her dance Kitri, even though she is scheduled to dance with Whiteside. I can't bear missing these moments in what I expect will be an outstanding career.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    The casting for this year kept many ballet lovers away from performances they would have liked to attend, but for the casting. I'm certainly in that group.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    That's exactly how I feel about seeing Shevchenko as Kitri. If by some miracle Whiteside pulled out of Don Q next week.... I've said it somewhere else on this forum, but I'll say it again here. I believe that Shevchenko is destined for greatness. You heard it first from me.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    I so much wish I could have seen Shevchenko in this performance. I didn't buy a ticket because I can't bear to watch her partner.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    As I've said somewhere else on this board, I think Ratmansky's next task should be to bring Acts 1 and 4 in SL up to the level of Acts 2 and 3. The opening of Act 4 is really a snooze-fest, as I believe someone said above. And those heavy costumes in Act 1 don't really go too well with dancing around a Maypole.

    ABT: Roster in Review - 2018

    I hope he continues to dance with ABT. I really enjoy watching him.

    ABT 2018 Swan Lake

    That's exactly why I'm not going to Shevchenko's O/O. Whiteside has kept me away from several performances this season.

    Sarah Lane

    I don't have time to search right now, but I know I've seen a photo of her dancing Juliet, possibly with LakeCities Ballet.

    Sarah Lane

    Just a fleeting thought. Lane has danced O/O and Juliet elsewhere, with companies other than ABT. Perhaps having her learn Nikiya and Kitri is a way of ensuring that she now knows almost all the leading roles and can perform in any of them next and in future seasons. An all-around Principal.

    Don Quixote Spring 2018

    Thanks for the clarification, aurora. I missed that performance, but her debut as Nikiya was stunning.

    I'm not sure what you mean by her turn at the first shade.
