  1. Youth America Grand Prix 2020 tickets are now on sale: https://davidhkochtheater.com/tickets/reserve.aspx?performanceNumber=7134
  2. The big news is Ratmansky's reconstructed Swan Lake no more, it goes back to Nureyev's version. Did Ratmansky and La Scala have a falling out? I wish ABT would pick it up and alternate it with Kevin's version instead of the same old same old every year. But I doubt Kevin would want to cut into his royalty income. Here's the 2019/20 reps: Sylvia - Legris staging co-production with Vienna Van Manen/Petit mixed reps Madina - new full length commission R&J - MacMillan Swan Lake - Nureyev Lady of Camelia Nutcracker - Balanchine http://www.teatroallascala.org/en/season/2019-2020/balletto/index.html
  3. Now that Kain retirement is announced, who are the candidates to replace her? Cote, McKie, Hodgkinson? https://national.ballet.ca/Media-Room/News/Just-Announced/Karen-Kain-to-Retire-as-Artistic-Director-of-The-N?fbclid=IwAR3EB_E9sy_3rrfQg9pyPB4-ogZ_djx-ZJIN6Oea1T4s64-D0Vzw9dGTmiA
  4. https://davidhkochtheater.com/tickets/reserve.aspx?performanceNumber=6758 "4 performances only of Boris Eifman’s two act ballet Russian Hamlet, set to music of Ludwig van Beethoven and Gustav Mahler, accompany by St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra."
  5. Mariinsky Emeralds sequence 1st Movement: Verdy ensemble 2nd: Verdy solo 3rd: Paul solo 4th: Pas de Trois 5th: Verdy pdd 6th: Paul pdd 7th: Ensemble 8th: omitted Why do you prefer the septet to be dropped?
  6. Are the referring the "walking" pdd? It's not omitted, but the last movement is.
  7. https://davidhkochtheater.com/tickets/reserve.aspx?performanceNumber=7026 Maia Makhateli of Dutch National Ballet and Dawid Trzensimiech formerly of Royal Ballet will guest 2 of the performances "With forty eight swans on stage, the production was directed and choreographed by Derek Deane, formerly the Artistic Director of English National Ballet and currently Artistic Director of Shanghai Ballet, with his team. It has toured 96 successful performances in Europe and Australia since December 2015. Featuring principal dancers Wu Husheng and Qi Bingxue as well as international guest stars, the Grand Swan Lake, with more than 80 dancers’ participation, will follow the timeless tragic love story of Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried and feature the timeless music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, played live by the New York City Ballet Orchestra, and conducted by Charles Barker from American Ballet Theatre."
  8. How are the sightlines at the Auditorium Theater? Any sections or seats to avoid? I am thinking of front balcony, any seats there to avoid?
  9. Roddy Doble (formerly with ABT before joining BB) is also leaving, for Les Grand Ballets Canadiens of Montreal as a principal dancer.
  10. WOW! I am really shocked and dismayed by the number of Ashton. only 2, or 45 minutes in total, and only one on the main stage. Sarasota performs more Ashton in one day.
  11. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=search&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ru&sp=nmt4&u=https://tass.ru/kultura/6377196&xid=17259,1500001,15700023,15700186,15700190,15700253,15700256,15700259&usg=ALkJrhjU13iIpF3ZuqyNOW2Y9qOR_XD3PQ New productions include 3 one-act ballets and Ratmansky's reconstructed (presumably) "Giselle." The company will tour Oman and Taiwan in addition to already announced DC and Chicago.
  12. DaaG rehearsal is being live-streamed at the NYCB Facebook page:
  13. https://www.miamicityballet.org/1920season?fbclid=IwAR2FJIpBTN2HHXnX-68CjpGHKP9IgyNtKMiM6fkqBhnOnpaRv8CE5_iubfw I assume Ratmansky Swan Lake will be in the 20/21 season?
  14. Yes, it's a typo, I meant to type 2020. Maybe the mod can correct the title.
  15. Chicago will get Bolshoi Swan Lake: https://www.wfmt.com/2019/02/28/bolshoi-ballet-to-return-to-chicago-after-16-years/ https://www.auditoriumtheatre.org/shows/bolshoi-ballet-swan-lake/

  20. I don't think it's going to be ABT's Lake or Beauty as it did both 3-4 years ago at KC. Just my guess, NYCB for Scotch Symphony, ABT for R&J, Bolshoi for Swan Lake, Mariinsky for Sleeping Beauty. I hope Bolshoi won't bring Ratmansky's R&J as I've seen it with Toronto. I assume Bolshoi will be in Chicago also.
  21. The new season is soon to be announced, the Center posted hints of the upcoming season on its FB page. Looks like it's going to be Swan Lake, R&J, Sleeping Beauty, Scotch Symphony...

  23. I guess Bouder is not entirely happy with the appointments. While Mearns offered praise and congratulations to both Whelan and Stafford, Bouder didn't mention Stafford at all
