  1. I don't know if this was common knowledge but I just read this article from last November: http://deadline.com/2016/11/new-york-times-wall-street-journal-entertainment-coverage-staff-as-print-ads-vanish-1201850080/. Situation at the Times' Arts section is worse than I thought.
  2. I have a few wonkish questions that I hope someone won't mind answering! 1) Do the recently promoted soloists still dance their corps roles for the final week of this season or will they be replaced? 2) I sometimes notice a soloist dance a role that I thought was for senior corps. For example, the demis in T&V. Are these actually soloist roles that senior corps typically dance? Thanks!
  3. It's really weird, I agree. At the same time, I haven't seen an NYCB review in the New York Times in a long time. I've seen a lot of puff pieces on the other hand. While I appreciate learning about the character of Aurora, for example, I prefer ballet criticism.
  4. I believe he is per his instagram.
  5. I think Laracey does have the wow factor in certain roles. I saw her at the Kennedy Center dance both Ash and the Infernal Machine the same night. She was stunning in the Infernal Machine -- so much that I was shocked it was the same dancer in both roles. She was a last minute sub for Isaacs in Ash but was scheduled for it later that week. In other news, Megan Fairchild was a perfect Aurora and just thought I should share =). She really projected her dancing.
  6. She also danced Odette/Odile in POB's televised/streamable Swan Lake. Links should be found on this forum.
  7. There seems to be a depressing theme this year: Rachelle di Stasio was told she grew too tall for ABT's corps. http://energetiksblog.com.au/blog/2016/10/17/energetiks-talks-with-rachelle-di-stasio
  8. Congratulations! http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/THE-ROYALEs-Khris-Davis-NYC-Ballets-Indiana-Woodward-Top-2017-Clive-Barnes-Awards-20170109
  9. Week 6 casting up. Phelan and Gerrity debuting Dewdrop, Macgill Marzipan.
  10. full performance streaming available with Amandine Albisson and Mathieu Ganio: https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/magazine/swan-lake
  11. Looks like Ashley Bouder per her instagram. I agree with you about Claire! I wonder why Lauren Lovette hasn't been cast as dewdrop yet.
  12. Oy so frustrating. On the flip side, my mom was leaning forward to watch the orchestra before the curtain rose. The man behind her yelled at her.
  13. Surprisingly, NYCB tickets at the KC are always the least expensive of the ballet companies performing in the Opera House and generally cheaper than the Washington Ballet as well. Imspear also linked to a great discount here and there's another 20% off evening performance Orchestra seats here. Sorry to not be able to answer the key question about the Cincinnati Ballet!
  14. Weird. Well I downloaded it. Is there a way I can upload it?
  15. Thank you all! I'm looking forward to this.
  16. Casting has been announced on the Kennedy Center site. The leads will be Kochetkova and Walsh, André and Ingham, and Chung and Quenedit. I'm not very familiar with SFB dancers. Any thoughts?
  17. Thank you Pherank! I'd love to see Froustey. I'm not sure if she performs this role but she was stunning in World Ballet Day's company class.
  18. San Francisco ballet is bringing Cinderella to the Kennedy Center at the end of the month. Does anyone know when casting will be released?
  19. Is anyone else struggling with the feed? It keeps cutting out and won't restart by itself.
  20. Woodward replaces Pollack in Emeralds this week.
  21. Were the last promotions over a year ago? Any thoughts on who's next? Woodward seems to be making a great case for herself, dancing in two new ballets and subbing in Divert.
  22. The website has been updated to include the recently promoted apprentices. Congratulations to Christopher Grant, Rachel Hutsell, Sasonah Huttenbach, and Alston MacGill!
