I only just received mine on Monday, so I would think they are still trickling out.

With Catazaro out of the picture, I wonder what are the chances for an Isabella LaFreniere debut in Diamonds (since they were rehearsing it together). Maybe Silas Farley could do it? Also, I got served up an ad for Jewels. Looks like they are using a clip from Rubies with Emily Kikta. Hope we get to see her!

Probably controversial and will never happen but I wish they would ask Gelsey Kirkland to coach.  Everyone always says how special she was...well there's a reason for that!  Why not utilize her talents now that her ex is out of the picture!

Trying to recall who were last year’s apprentices. Is this the whole batch of them, or was there anyone not continuing on?

I believe that Kirkland pretty much renounced her SAB training and went Russian, or tried to in some ways. She is a fan of full length, story ballets including mime. I don't think she'd be a fit for NYCB. I agree that she was special as a dancer, not my favorite, but special. However that doesn't mean she has what it takes to be a great teacher or coach. Most importantly she has never indicated an interest in the Balanchine legacy, quite the opposite.

Yes, I was thinking specifically of the non-Balanchine story ballets.  She's been teaching for several years now, yes, I understand it's Russian... but so is the foundation of Balanchine technique.  Anyways, as I said, I realize this is a controversial opinion.

Casting out for week 1. LaFreniere debuts as the tall girl in Rubies, which is exciting. I was hoping to see Reichlen, though, as I've never seen her do the part before, so I'm a little disappointed.

Claire Kretzschmar is debuting the same role later in the week. Glad she's also being given more opportunities, always reminds me of Whelan.

I think LaFreniere & Kretzschmar will both make great Rubies tall girls - this is very exciting casting!

This first week of casting makes me want to throw all my money at NYCB.

Many exciting debuts. I’m looking forward to Lauren King in Emeralds, as well. I didn’t realize she had done that role previously. 

ETA: And Harrison Ball’s return!  A debut in Tschai Pas is a pretty good welcome back.

With all the sordid news coming out, I'm glad there's some good news. The casting does indeed look exciting. Glad Harrison Ball is back!

Great idea! I’d love to see Farrell coaching. Imagine her working with Sara Mearns! Bring back Tzigane!! 

I may try for tickets to Indiana Woodward’s debut in Symphony in C. She should be lovely in that Third movt.

Maybe now that Martins is gone, some of the ballets as to which Farrell owns the copyright might enter NYCB rep, such as Tzigane.
