Hallberg will be guesting with the Mariinsky July 12 and 20 at the White Nights Festival. I’m guessing that’s why he pulled out of Whipped Cream earlier in the month.

 

He is basically an ABT guest artist at this point. And his post-injury rep is so limited.

Maybe when Hallberg decided he could no longer perform Solor, ABT and Mariinsky did a swap - we'll loan you  Kimin Kim for Solor, and you loan us Hallberg for Albrecht.

I haven't seen Hallberg this year. Has he retired Solor?  I did see Kimin Kim's Solor last week.  He was great, Gillian Murphy was thrilling as Gamzatti, but I thought Hee Seo was  bland and overparted.

I don’t believe he’s officially retired Solor, but I assume as much. He pulled out of ABT’s Bayadere months ago, before he injured himself. I think the Petipa role he’s most likely to reprise at ABT or elsewhere is Prince Desiree. I could certainly see him in the Ratmansky reconstruction; lots of partnering, with just one (super taxing) solo.

Romeo is no walk in the park and he's still doing that....

Arron Scott has replaced Jonathan Klein as The Boy in Whipped Cream for his two performances. Klein was replaced in this on tour months ago, so assuming he's injured, though he's been able to do a few simple corps roles the past few weeks.

I got an email advertising a flash sale for WC for 25% off. Not a great sign, but being scheduled the last week and during 4th of July doesn't help.

And last year WC was a near sell-out. I assumed they programmed it for that week because they thought it could still sell well. And there will be tourists in town.

I'm disappointed to hear Klein has been replaced; I was looking forward to seeing a corps member get a shot at a leading role.

Klein did perform the Boy in Whipped Cream on tour earlier in the season, I believe (at least in D.C.?)

Yes, I remember he had posted about it. The ABT calendar now lets you go back in time (yay!), and it shows him performing it just that one time in the D.C. run. (Cirio and Shayer each got one performance, as well; Simkin got two.) The casting is also mentioned in the thread from that run.

Was it during the Hong Kong run that he was replaced?

Yes, that's too bad about Klein; I was looking forward to seeing him in this. He really stood out in the betrothal scene waltz in Bayadère the other week.
