  1. Mariinsky stayed at Brooklyn Marriott when they were at BAM. POB at Le Meridien. Bolshoi at Sheraton on 7tn Ave. Mikhailovsky at Holiday Inn now the Watson on W57th.
  2. Seeing the 4-hour plus reconstructed Beauty alone is worth the entire trip. While Bayadere is listed as the Soviet version. https://www.mariinsky.ru/en/playbill/playbill/2018/3/8/1_1900
  3. Covent Garden is more like a House of McGregor-Wheeldon-Scarlett nowadays.
  4. Sarasota will return to Joyce as part of the ballet festival with mixed programs of Ashton, Balanchine, de Valois, Tharp, Bintley, Wheeldon, and Bourne. https://www.joyce.org/performances/sarasota-ballet
  5. Peter Boal would be a top contender should Martin step down.
  6. 2018 LSF will bring in POB, so I doubt it will present another classical company. However, don't rule out Joyce, as it has brought RB, MCB, NB Canada, Joffrey, and SFB to the State Theater in the past few years.
  7. Published in tomorrow NY Times Arts & Leisure new season section, the reps will be Giselle La Bayadere R&J Swan Lake Don Q Whipped Cream Harlequinade Firebird, new McGregor
  8. Effective for the 18/19 season. He will continue to dance with ABT presumably at a reduced capacity. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/08/arts/dance/daniil-simkin-joins-staatsballett-berlin.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fdance&action=click&contentCollection=dance&region=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=3&pgtype=sectionfront&_r=0
  9. I find it amusing that many New Yorkers brag about their inability to drive like it's a badge of honor.
  10. I believe La Cour and Nilas are half-brothers, sharing the same mother, Peter's ex-wife.

  12. A company member half-jokingly mentioned the alarm might have been a sabotage, set off by a rival.
  13. Lincoln Center Festival usually starts the second week of July and lasts thru the end of July. NY portion of the tour will probably be from mid to end of July.
  14. The 2018 American tour will cover 3 cities over 4 weeks. NY will be the last leg of the tour with 3 programs over 2 weeks as part of Lincoln Center Festival. The other city will be Dallas.
  15. Russian coverage: http://www.balletinsider.com/archive/history/7887
  16. Saratoga summer season 20% off discount code: NYCB20 valid for seats $60 or above.
  17. There is a Petipa documentary being made in New York with Ratmansky according to Tiler Peck and Alban Lendorf on Instagram:
  18. Please sign the petition to keep Veronika Part at ABT: https://www.change.org/p/abt-american-ballet-theater-let-abt-know-that-we-want-veronika-part-to-continue-dancing-with-the-company?recruiter=194536246&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=share_for_starters_page
  19. Pay attention to the violin solos (Benjamin Bowman) next week, they'll come from a Stradivarius.
  20. Dream comes true. But being in rehearsal could mean she's just studying for the role as an understudy for Kochetkova. But the prospect of Lane's O/O is looking great. .
  21. I've heard that's exactly my sentiment. I'd welcome any replacement other than Seo.
  22. ABT usually announces promotions towards the end of the spring season, so announcement is just a few weeks away. I think Lane will be promoted. Shevchenko and Teuscher are definitely principal material, I think they will be promoted eventually. And I really hope Royal will be promoted this time.
  23. I saw Misty Copeland NY debute tonight, it was sold out. She's a good actress but needs to work on her technical department. Her hop on point was too careful too conscious, looking down at her foot most of the time, and hops didn't travel far. All in all not a bad debute. Devon Teuscher was fantastic as Myrtha, with a very fluid upper body. Her borree across the stage was very floaty. The corps were wonderful in 2nd act, very in synch.
