SPAC has announced the 2020 NYCB season:  https://spac.org/calendar/calendar-of-events/?view=list&gen=2&utm_source=SPAC+Master&utm_campaign=e3983f31fc-EBLAST_2020ClassicalSeasonAnnounceNonMemb&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_506934f83b-e3983f31fc-217250197&mc_cid=e3983f31fc&mc_eid=bee1c0630b

Programs are:  

Martins' Swan Lake:  July 14 and 17th at 8pm, July 18th at 2 pm

20th Century Masters (Summerspace/Cunnningham; Piano Pieces/Robbins; Rubies/Balanchine): July 15th at 8 pm, July 16th at 2 pm

SPAC Premieres: Haieff Divertimento (Haieff/Balanchine); The Shaded Line (Tan Dun/Lovette); New Peck (Muhly/Peck): July 16th at 8 pm

Gala (In G Major/Robbins; The Man I Love PDD/Balachine); Rubies (Balanchine): July 18th at 8 pm.

I'm excited to see the Haieff, which I've never seen before, in the SPAC Premieres program and will probably also go to the 20th Century Masters Program. But on the whole, I'm not thrilled with the programming, especially the 3 Martins SLs.  I already bought a lawn pass for the five  $5 upgrades (not including the Gala), but I don't think I'll make the same mistake next year. They also usually have one orchestra program with some dance, but not this year.

Thank you so much for posting this, FPF.  Given there is Balanchine in two programs, I’ll probably go to more than three performances this year in addition to SL.

I assume the summer season is going to be canceled as well? Any words?

There's nothing officially decided yet, but I would personally be surprised if Cuomo allows it to open--he's made remarks in the past few days about not having the state fair or opening the racetrack at Saratoga. 

This is the latest interview with the SPAC president from a couple of weeks ago. https://www.timesunion.com/entertainment/article/SPAC-CEO-Health-a-top-concern-but-ready-for-15202767.php

The Saratoga Jazz Festival at SPAC at the end of June was just officially cancelled (email from SPAC). Things are not looking good for the summer NYBC season.

As per email from SPAC and the SPAC website , the NYCB summer season in Saratoga is cancelled. https://spac.org/coronavirus-update/

If you have tickets, there are options to donate, apply to future tickets (good for 5 years), or get a refund.

SPAC is replacing the ballet floor and looking for donations to help fund it after the cancellation of this summer season. The floor was already ordered so that it would be in place for this summer and since it was custom-made, they couldn't cancel the order.
