Tuesday, May 7, 2019 – 7:30 pm

Piano Concerto #1

Since role and work debuts are not denoted, I will go from memory.  This will be the first time in Shostakovich Trilogy for Aaron Robison, Ulrik Birkkjaer, Wona Park, and Angelo Greco.  Dores Andre, Joseph Walsh, and Wei Wang are debuting new roles in Symphony #9.  Dores (IIRC) was one of the three women in Chamber Symphony, Joseph Walsh danced the lead in Chamber Symphony, and Wei Wang was in the corps of Piano Concerto #1.  Yuan Yuan Tan is debuting in Chamber Symphony.  Previously she danced one of the principal women in Piano Concerto #1.  I will check my cast sheets later and make updates if needed.

There's a short clip of Simone Messmer  in Nancy Raffa's intro, followed by Sarah Van Patten & Carlos Quenedit who partnered especially well I thought.

Wow, they got that cast list up [relatively] early! Looks great. I'll be attending opening night; crossing fingers that there will be no replacements. (And all set to shrug philosophically when there are.)

I've got tickets to both Saturday performances.  Last time around, the same cast danced the matinee and evening, so I'm glad to see different casts this time.  Interesting that Tan is in Chamber Symphony; is that a debut for her?  I don't remember her being in it previously.  Also, very glad to see Walsh in Chamber; he has the drama to do it justice.

I'd like to hear how Jahna Frantziskonis and Lizzy Powell look in Chamber Symphony, PeggyR.
