  1. I exchanged my tickets today at the Met and was able to buy additional single tickets and picked my own seats. I don't know if they changed the policy or they didn't allow single ticket sales on the first day of exchange. The ticket agent was very friendly and helpful, he's the one with goatee and dark short hair. If he's on duty I always wait for him to serve me. Anyway, if you've exchanged your tickets already, you can still buy single tickets before the box office opens to general public this Sunday, just tell them your subscribers id number.
  2. Have any companies staged Grigorovich's Spartacus outside the former Soviet bloc countries? I can't think of any. I'd take a season like this over anything full of McGregors, Scarletts, Pitas,...
  3. Subscribers can always order single tickets without the ability to pick their own seats. The complaints level against ABT this year is that subscribers can't buy single tickets and pick their own seats during the exchange week.
  4. Robbie Fairchild final curtain videos and pictures are posted on AiP FB page: https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/anamericaninparis?source=feed_text&story_id=1708957879380917&pnref=story Leanne Cope will remain with AiP Broadway until October, 2016.
  5. I just received the single ticket brochure, Hallberg is no longer listed, I don't know if that means he's gone just for the current season or for good. Also, on the Met site the costume design for Le Corsaire is listed as Irina Tibilova that's the old production, not the new one by Anibal Lapiz that premiered in 2013, so I assume they are going back to the old production. I wonder for what happened to the new one.
  6. I think there's a possibility of Lane joining WB if she has a better working relationship with Kent and Barbee than with Kevin. There's already an ABT alumna at WB, Nicole Graniero left ABT for WB last summer: https://www.washingtonballet.org/company/nicole-graniero Someone raised the possibility of Lane joining PA Ballet in another thread, why not both if WB and PAB seasons don't overlap.
  7. I think the NYC tour is now doubtful, I sure hope I am wrong as the SCFTA lauds Laurencia as "Center premiere" not "USA premiere".
  8. Mariinsky returns to Kennedy Center with Ratmansky's Little Humpbacked Horse 1/31-2/5/17: http://www.kennedy-center.org/calendar/event/BRBSG

  10. Also reported in the NYT: http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/03/07/julie-kent-to-lead-washington-ballet/?ref=arts&_r=0 Going from associate director of ABT to WB is quite a step down, but that's the sacrifice you make for your family. Now ABT needs to fill 2 vacancies.
  11. Berlin just announced 2016/17 season to be performed over 3 venues(Deutsche Oper Berlin, Staatsoper im Schiller Theater, Komische Oper Berlin): http://www.staatsballett-berlin.de/en/presse/mitteilungen/02-03-2016/55 New Nutcracker by Nacho Duato replacing Medvedev and Burlaka's reconstructed version Swan Lake Sleeping Beauty Jewels Giselle Onegin A double bill by Maillot & Millepied (Daphnis et Chloe) Duato's "Multiplicity" A double bill by Duato and Hofesh Shechter A triple bill by Duato and Kylián A triple bill by Duato, Kylián, and Naharin Duato's "Herrumbre" All in all a very Duato-centric season.
  12. Russian TV on Mariinsky's Kennedy Center tour of Raymonda: http://tvkultura.ru/article/show/article_id/148790/
  13. Thanks to California for the link to Segerstrom 2016/17 season: http://www.scfta.org/scfta/media/General/Press/2016-17-Full-Season-Announcement.pdf Mik will bring Laurencia to SoCal between 11/18-11/20/16, so I assume the NY tour will be the 2 weeks before that and will get Laurencia as well. Osipova and Vasiliev, along with Sergei Polunin will tour with the company. In addition to Le Corsaire and Laurencia, I think NY will also get Swan Lake.
  14. 3 programs, that is it? Not counting the annual Nutcracker.
  15. Bolshoi lists Hallberg in its London tour: http://www.roh.org.uk/about/bolshoi May be there's hope that he'll make it to the Met season unless it's Bolshoi wishful thinking.
  16. http://www.operaballet.nl/en/programma/ballet?filter=179 A wonderful season with European premiere of Ratmansky's Shostakovich Trilogy.
  17. Not a surprise, all performances are almost sold out, whatever remaining in the nosebleed seation are dynamically priced thru the roof. And congrat to Trenary on her Aurora debut.
  18. Maria Kochetkova posted on FB hers as 2/20 and 2/23 evenings.
  19. It's official, Robbie Fairchild will leave AiP on 3/13: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/10/theater/robert-fairchild-to-depart-an-american-in-paris.html?smid=fb-share The new Wheeldon piece for NYCB mentioned in the article I believe will be set to Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue".
  20. Just a reminder that Robbie Fairchild will leave "An American in Paris" in mid-March, if you haven't seen him already, this is your last chance, AiP loss is NYCB gain. However, he will rejoin AiP in its London run. It's not clear whether AiP will move from NY to London, or there will be 2 concurrent runs in NY and London.
  21. Thanks Natalia for the wonderful reports. How's the ending? I mean before Odette and Siegfried glide into heaven, did they commit double suicide?
  22. If the tour were to happen, part of the company would probably be in Paris in August to conduct auditions for supernumeraries and children (the production employs tons of them) and to handle logistics. So it's technically correct that Paris will host NYCB and ABT "back-to-back" from June to September. Just because RB & NBoC have a certain co-production rights sharing agreement, that doesn't mean ABT and La Scala would have a similar agreement. May be ABT is the senior partner bearing more costs and, therefore, entitling to more rights? We'll find out on Feb. 10 when POB announces the 16/17 season.
  23. Thanks, Natalia. If there's no conflict with NYCB I'd definitely go to DC to escape piles of snow here.
