  1. ABT usually announces the Spring Season during the fall season. Maybe, next week?
  2. We saw Katie Williams in her Met debut of Myrtha a while back{ who can remember when one last saw a live performance}. We thought it was a very impressive debut. Her bourees were so smooth and fast that it look like she was skating, Sorry , i could not describe it more technically. Anyway, i think she deserves to get a major role. soon, i hope. .
  3. And are they starting the search for the next artistic director?
  4. Yes, Martine's !st act Giselle was too healthy looking compared to the reigning Giselles in the mid -70s(Makarova,Gelsey, Carla fracci) ABT but her 2nd act was very beautifu land touching,IMO. She just did it once with Clark Tippet.
  5. A little bit off the topic. It seems, Irina and Max are top-notched coaches with terrific results. So, why hasn't ABT grabbed them as ballet masters/coaches. Irina K. can't do everything. Just a thought.
  6. It would be great if Gisele Bethea returns. She had recently danced SPF in a local Nutcracker. Just a thought.
  7. With many talented ladies in the soloist and Corp , I wish they would revive the Grand Pas of Paquita.
  8. Scout Forsythe is definitely one who should be seen more . I think, she was injured last year but has returned this spring. Hoping she'll get some prominent roles this coming season.
  9. I imagine that casting will not be announced until they start rehearsing in early September especially for new ballets.
  10. i read somewhere that Tom is 6'2 or 6'3.
  11. Stella seems to be preparing for her eventual retirement with teaching at Kaatsbaan?and at ABT. Would love for her to join ABT staff.
  12. The season is ending and there are still no promotions?πŸ˜ΎπŸ‘ŽπŸ½πŸ™
  13. How were the fairies in the prologue?
  14. Any reports on the Boynston-Simkin SL?
  15. The POB male dancers do this a lot more with more success than failure. Nureyev's staging of Don Q and Nutcracker features this . I'm not sure if it is done in their Swan Lake. It is also done by Kitri in the DQ PDD adagio.
  16. All of this year’s apprentices were promoted to the Corp de Ballet according to the ABT website. Maybe, the promotions, if any, will follow soon. This week?
  17. They probably will as they won't revive a production just for a single performance. If they do, they will most likely cast T Forster as the future groom. Just an opinion.
  18. I may be mistaken but i thought that he danced Manon with Osipova @ The Royal Ballet
  19. Maria Shrinkina , a soloist at the Mariinski, I think.
  20. Too bad if Lendorf leaves. He had too many recent injuries though. Vladimir Shklyarov would be a good principal addition but then they would probably have to hire his wife too.
  21. When did ABT announce last years promotions? There are a lot deserving a promotion especially T Forster.
