    ABT 2019 Met Season

    So, Is Smirnova still coming as a guest? Just curious.

    ABT 2019 Met Season

    It’s strange to have Olga Smirnova as a guest artist dancing essentially secondary roles. Just wondering.

    2018 Nutcracker - Costa Mesa

    Thanks. Maybe, another Cate Hurlin would emerge from the present Claras.

    ABT 2019 Met Season

    Any news on the 2019 Met season yet? The Times usually mentions, accurately, the ballets for the spring season in The New Season issue.

    Are all the children in the Nutcracker students from the ABT Gillespie school?

    ABT 2018 Fall season

    I think the company is still on their summer break and has not started the rehearsal period. ABT is probably waiting for the rehearsals to start before deciding the casting. Just a thought

    ABT: Roster in Review - 2018

    Paris Opera Etoiles, Matthew Ganio and Matthias Heyman should be considered as possible guest for the Met season.Matthias was a guest before and M Ganio partnered Isabella Boylston when she guested in DQ. Soloist Paul Marque and Francois Alu are also very good dancers. Just a thought.

    ABT 2019 Met Season

    I hope they do the full-length Raymonda but not the McKenzie-Holmes production a few years ago.

    Don Quixote Spring 2018

    Yes , That was a wonderful variation. It was Barysnikov's staging of DQ . Maybe, that's the reason it was changed. It looks like a more difficult variation.

    ABT: Roster in Review - 2018

    It is definitely a big loss to ABT. Too bad they did not appreciate the talent and versatility of J Cirio. Hoping he will come back to guest .

    "Harlequinade" 2018.

    I know that NYCB have several seasons during the year but do they have frequent layoffs like ABT?

    "Harlequinade" 2018.

    It seems that the lack of enough rehearsals , coaching and understudies for the principal roles are the main problems that are always affecting the Met season. Surely, the ABT board of directors are aware of these problems. It is not fair to the dancers and the paying audience to be treated this way.
