  1. If i'm not mistaken, i think, Katherine Healy was one of the Juliets that Ashton coached( the other was Trinidad Sevilano ?).
  2. Is the Ratmansky Giselle a reconstruction or just a new staging?
  3. So, Is Smirnova still coming as a guest? Just curious.
  4. It’s strange to have Olga Smirnova as a guest artist dancing essentially secondary roles. Just wondering.
  5. Thanks. Maybe, another Cate Hurlin would emerge from the present Claras.
  6. Any news on the 2019 Met season yet? The Times usually mentions, accurately, the ballets for the spring season in The New Season issue.
  7. Are all the children in the Nutcracker students from the ABT Gillespie school?
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I hope they do the full-length Raymonda but not the McKenzie-Holmes production a few years ago.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 .

    Sarah Lane

    I know, she danced Giselle with Lake Cities Ballet twice.
  14. Denys Ganio, Aran’s teacher in Europe, is the father of POB etoile Mathieu Ganio.
  15. I know that NYCB have several seasons during the year but do they have frequent layoffs like ABT?
  16. 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.
  17. Yes, Gisele and. Scout are definitely in that category. Both of them have not been seen in any of the performances so far this season. Hoping they are not injured.
  18. The second Shade( C Trenary) was replaced by Stephanie Williams. Anabel did the first Shade beautifully.
  19. Have not seen ABT’s La Bayadere for a while. The L Samaritani scenic designs are as beautiful as ever. It was a very good performance by all but especially for the debuts of Devon, Christine and Joo Won. Act II was very well done esp by the principal couple. Also notable was the debut of Anabel Katsnelson as the first shade. As usual, Arron Scott was a spectacular Bronze Idol.
  20. From afar , it did look like her. Thanks.
  21. Yes, it did. A successful debut. Btw, who did the peasant pdd? From the back of the orchestra, she did not looked like Trenary.
  22. We would be happy to see the Sarah-Daniil team but would still be a bit disappointed.
  23. Surely, one of ABT's prominent patrons can sponsor her coaching position/salary.
