Well, the Times is almost a month behind the times, but better late than never.
They finally caught wind of the fact that Sascha Radetsky's final performance with ABT will be this spring. Haglund reported that last month. Here's the NYT blog post which also allows for comments/tributes, etc.
2015 is going to be a huge year for ballet stars branching out on the stage and screen. Here are Haglund's Predictions:
Emmy nominations for Irina Dvorovenko and Sascha Radetsky for Flesh and Bone.
Tony nominations for Robert Fairchild in An American in Paris and Tiler Peck in The Little Dancer - both of those productions are expected to hit New York in 2015. No theaters assigned yet, though.
Who will win? Well, Irina, of course. But it could be a sweep.
Some exciting casting coming up during NYCB's second week of the spring season.
Tiler Peck will debut in the 1st Movement of Symphony in C opposite Chase Finlay. Maria Kowroski and Sara Mearns will each have two performances of the 2nd Movement. Lauren King gets four performances of the 4th Movement: two with Adrian Danchig-Waring and two with Sean Suozzi. And Ashley Isaacs has a big debut in the 3rd Movement.
Raymonda returns with Megan Fairchild and Joaquin DeLuz followed by Ashley Bouder and Andrew Veyette.
