  3. Yes, I am aware of the price. I was going to buy the three-program package. Hope you're right on an encore but I doubt they will.
  4. I was doing the same. Saw that access for first program was through today. Oh well, they missed out on $90.

  6. My condolences to all who she coached and touched. She was an exemplar of the 70s Balanchine style and a coach of distinction.

  9. Found this little rarity. And on an official account. I recognize the Adams portion as a bit PBS included in the Balanchine documentary. (Balanchine repurposed it later for Union Jack, as he was a habit of doing). But it also includes a section of the dance for Arthur Mitchell and Mary Hinkson - a very historic pairing in a new Balanchine creation. What a lovely duet. People often mention this ballet as one of the lost works they most wished could be revived. There's an archived discussion here: And more photos here: https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/743205e0-b755-0130-7dcd-58d3
  10. An announcement: AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE APPOINTS JOSE SEBASTIAN AS NEW DIRECTOR OF ABT INCUBATOR SEBASTIAN TO SUCCEED DAVID HALLBERG IN “ABT INCUBATOR: PASS THE BATON” PROGRAM, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14 AT 6:00 P.M.

Sebastian succeeds ABT Principal Dancer David Hallberg, who has led ABT Incubator since its inception in 2010. An online presentation marking this leadership transition, as Hallb
  11. A very heartfelt essay. One thing that has happened in this quarantine time is that while companies aren't performing, there's been a lot of change. From the BLM movement that challenged leadership to take diversity and talented Black dancers seriously, to talk about what it means to be in dancing shape and now also mental health. I hope companies step up to provide support in this area.
  12. I just watched her explanation video. Makes sense to me. As others have posted earlier, they knew her size and health condition when they hired her. It was all well and good until it wasn't. I hope Kathryn Morgan finds the right fit somewhere worthy. For me, she has talent and special qualities that can't be taught. I didn't see her comeback performance but from videos of rehearsals and bits of performance footage, she seemed just like the dancer who delighted so many of us since her student days. Maybe even better as there was a more mature artistry there. I think she covered all the di

  14. I was dreaming Continuing my day dream, the NYCB, while it doesn't have as large of a catalog as the Met, it has some things going for it for a (wished for) partnering. They are both full residents of Lincoln Center. And it is one American company that does have a catalog and experience filming. As we've seen, the high polished videos at State Theater only really started a few years ago but they do have decades' worth of house camera (wide, close) footage. Plus a history of recordings from Great Performances and Live from Lincoln Center. A partnership doesn't necessarily mean a complet
