NYCB to PA Ballet dancers

Recommended Posts

Don't think this has been mentioned before, but Lorenzo has joined Pennsylvania Ballet in the corps. Jennifer Chipman is in the corps, as well. Alexander Iziliaev is a principal.

A journey to Philly when they are there might be in order!

Ah, thanks, Calliope. Just goes to show how NYCB-centric I am... not bothering to read posts about other companies!

Don't worry about it Amanda, I'm the same way, it took me a long time to stop checking the NYCB posts first. That's why this board is great, it affords us the opportunity to read about everyone!

I'm hoping to catch PAB's Nutcracker, hopefully I get to see Lorenzo, but alas, no casting (now I'm NYCB/ABT spoiled in that department!)

I hope that Steve Keeley will read this thread (as he was a fan of Ms Lorenzo :) ).

Thanks, Leigh!

This is happy news indeed. I'll be checking the PA Ballet board looking forward to reading news of this beautiful and exciting dancer.

I just heard that Riolama Lorenzo danced the role of Sugar Plum Fairy today at PA Ballet's dress rehearsal, and that apparently she will be performing the role during the run- I don't know specific dates for casting, though.

Thank you Tessa for the news. It is a shame that casting isn't listed. I've been to paballet.org and it is a most annoying site - no casting and everything needs a thousand extra plug-ins.

I'm happy that Lorenzo resumed her career. PA Ballet should be a good company for her. It is smaller than NYCB and she should be able to get the roles she deserves. Plus the rep. is a nice blend of classics, Balanchine and newer items. And the Nutcracker is the Balanchine version. I remember seeing Lorenzo in Coffee...I'm sure the men in the audience were very happy!
