Hopefully we'll see a debut or two (Lane, Trenary, Gorak) that'll lead into the Met season.

Gorak has already done Romeo (2 yrs ago, with Copeland) at ABT. However, they did not cast him in it again the following year.

In 2015, Cornejo was paired with Obratzova, which was sublime (one guest artist I'd love to see again). Copeland was paired with Simkin in 2016. Copeland seems to dance with Cornejo fairly often (Swan Lake in 2017), so Cornejo or Simkin might be the more likely pairing in 2018 than going back to Gorak - if R&J is on the Met schedule again.

I agree - Copeland and Cornejo would be a better match in R&J than Copeland and Gorak, or even Simkin. I didn't catch Gorak's debut as Romeo but I believe I remember reading mixed reviews. Though he seems to have stalled in casting and his acting and partnering still needs work, I believe he has great potential that I hope with the right coaching will be met. I see a beautiful Romeo in him someday and Lane would make an exquisite Juliet. Even though I hated The Tempest, they were gorgeous together and had such natural chemistry that I can only imagine how that'll translate into R&J. Trenary and Cirio would also make a very nice R&J. 

 

Usually the ballets they tour with earlier in the year are an indication of what is to come at the Met, though I don't know if that's always been the case.

For anyone who's looking for tickets and doesn't want to wait, you can get them early through the UMS site: https://ums.org/performance/american-ballet-theatre/

 

The Michigan Opera Theatre single tickets go live on August 21st. Looks like they gave UMS 1/2 blocks in each section to sell early.

 

No cast announcements yet, aside from Copeland being scheduled for 2 out of 4 performances.
