    No, but a friend who ordered a half series has. Maybe those are quicker to process?

    NYCB 2018-2019 Season

    I just got my De Luz farewell ticket and one of the single tickets I’ve ordered in the mail. It’s bizarre that they didn’t send subscriptions first, especially as I would really like to exchange a see the music performance.

    New subscriber here- when do we get our tickets? I’ve already gotten the opera and philharmonic ones. Also, after i bought my subscription I got an email saying to pick a date for a free performance, which I did but never heard back.

    Winter 2018

    I was there. This was the first time I saw this production. While I thought Woodward was wonderful, I thought that she and Taylor Stanley made an odd pairing and didn't really have much chemistry together, though he was also excellent on his own. The highlight of the show, though, was Roman Mejia as Mercutio, who stole every scene he was in. I was particularly impressed with his acting in his death scene. The sets of this production are horrific and embarrassing for a company of NYCB's caliber. I didn't think the choreography was as bad as some commenters have said, though it could get rather repetitive. All in all, I would see this production again, but I think I can wait four or five years before doing so.

    I saw Mearns in Cortege in the fall. I'm surprised by Bouder's casting in that role- if anyone's going to that performance I would love to hear a review!
  7. Well if they have to replace him Suzanne Farrell's available.

    2017 Fall Season

    I'm a newcomer to NYC and am seeing Bouder on the 21st. I was hoping for Reichlen, but I've never seen this company in person before so I don't know. Any opinions on whether I should change my ticket, and if so to whom?

    Mariinsky Roster changes

    Oxana Bondareva has been removed from the roster- although I don't think she's danced there in a while.
  10. It's unfortunate that there won't be a chance for her to give a final performance. Also, I'm not the most knowledgeable about the Mariinsky, but does anyone know if/when Yulia Makhalina will retire? It doesn't seem like she ever dances anymore (aside from the gala she recently gave, which I assumed would be her retirement) and she's a few years older than Lopatkina. Not to be disrespectful or anything, but there are a few first soloists that seem to be deserving of a promotion if only spots would open up for them.
