2016-2017 Season

Recommended Posts

MCB is announcing their 2016-2017 season this coming Monday. They posted a preview photo on Facebook, saying that they will do 5 company premieres and one world premiere. And with this photo, it looks like they are going to do Calcium Light Night.

I saw Ratmansky's "Fairy's Kiss" at the Mariinsky in the late '90s with Ayupova as Bride and Lopatkina as the Fairy. Even that was, I think, a restaging of an even earlier version for RDB or some other company. This must be a new staging for Miami. Not really a "world premiere" unless one considers a restaging to be such. The Mariinsky version with Ayupova/Lopatkina was beautiful, so Miami is in for a treat.

Here's a little taste of the ballet, with a very young Lopatkina. Enjoy while it lasts!

Oooh, thanks for the link -- some very interesting choices made. I wonder what he's planning to do with this material next time.

Am I correct about this being Messmer's debut as Giselle ?(counting the very high probability of her being cast in the role...)

Yes. She has done Myrtha (wonderfully), but not Giselle.

Unless he's making another one -- either way, lucky company!

Thanks for the link!

Just listened to Lauren Fadeley Veyette's podcast on A Fairy's Kiss.  Ratamansky is in Miami right now, choreographing a completely new ballet, so it is a world premiere.  It sounds really interesting, so I think I might try to get down to Miami to see the premiere.

 

Here is the link to her podcast:

By the way Program 4 no longer lists the Tharp piece. It has been replaced on the website and in new brochures with Divertimento No. 15. So Program 4 will be Divertimento No. 15, Arden Court, and Who Cares?
