6/14/2007 - Casting for the seventh and eighth weeks of American Ballet Theatre’s 2007 Spring Season at the Metropolitan Opera House was announced today by Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie.

On Monday, June 25, the Company will give the first of eight performances of Swan Lake, with Irina Dvorovenko, Maxim Beloserkovsky and David Hallberg in the leading roles. Choreographed by Kevin McKenzie after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, Swan Lake is set to a score by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky and features scenery and costumes by Zack Brown.

The season will conclude with eight performances of James Kudelka’s Cinderella, beginning Monday, July 2, led by Julie Kent and Marcelo Gomes.

according to the Metopera ticketing page http://www.metoperafamily.org/metopera/sea...on.aspx?id=9116

this has now changed somewhat:

Weds Matinee Pastor is replaced by Matthews

Thurs eve Gomes is replaced by Matthews

I wonder if someone is going to move up a level--all the other dancers doing Von Rothbart are soloists or principals

:flowers:

I'm disappointed not to be seeing Gomes as Von Rothbart though, he is magnificent in that role.
