  1. Sarah Van Patten is dancing the Grand pas de deux during the first week, which is terrific news.
  2. I assume these wondrous stars will be coaching SFB principals in Jewels.
  3. I went to a donor brunch in September and we were told that Nunez and Halburg were dancing two performances. It is fairly obvious that they would be dancing on opening night, but L.A. is slow to state the casting. In contrast, Orange County's Segerstrom Performing Arts Center states on line and/or in their season brochure that Nunez and Bolle are performing Onegin on Friday, Saturday evening, and the Sunday matinee.
  4. On Oct. 29, I tried accessing the website through an email I received about advance purchase and got nowhere. On Wednesday, I got an email giving me an access code that did not work. I finally called the box office about two hours ago and bought the tickets that I wanted.
  5. Thanks so much for posting the beautiful rehearsal by Vienna State Ballet of Emeralds, Naomikage.
  6. Marcela Marcela, I just saw your post. At a donor's brunch that I attended, it was announced that Nunez and Hallburg were dancing two performances. It's a pretty good guess that they will dance opening night. I would assume that they would also dance Saturday evening.
  7. Xiomara Reyes was still dancing as if it were the first day of spring when she was forced out by Kevin McKenzie. It was not her choice to retire, as was apparent from her interviews at the time.
  8. I'm thrilled to hear of Kristina Lind's promotion. She was dancing with such beauty in her last season wih San Francisco Ballet several years ago - I remember her lyricism in the Nutcracker Snow pas de deux and as one of the Serenade leads - and she was able to find her right place and continue to progress.
  9. I did not know that, AB'sMom. Thank you.
  10. I'm trying to delete a repeat post. Helene, can you help?
  11. Interesting about Kuranaga dancing Juliet in Denmark. Froustey posted that she was dancing two performances of Juliet including opening night, and Dores Andre has also danced Juliet.
  12. Sasha Mukhamedov has already danced Cinderella in Wheeldon's production with The Dutch National Ballet. It is not a role debut for her.
  13. Oh my God! Wonderful news about Forster!
  14. I wonder why they left out the other principals in Emeralds, especially the second female lead who dances the beautiful solo and walking pas de deux - two of the most meaningful (to me) moments of Jewels. Kondaurova should be lustrous in Diamonds and I am happy to watch Batoeva in Rubies and anything she dances. She was my favorite Cinderella (Ratmansky) the last time the Mariinsky was in L.A., which she danced with the handsome and charismatic Shklyarkov in an altogether memorable, electric performance from everyone on stage.
  15. Fantastic! I've been waiting for the casting and will buy my tickets to the Schevchenko-Forster performances tomorrow. They were terrific last year.
