Tickets for ABT's The Nutcracker go on sale Monday, September 12th at BAM for performances December 14 through December 31. The only principal casting released thus far is for the opening night performance which will be Veronika Part and Marcelo Gomes.
If ABT was able to release the principal cast for its premiere of The Firebird out in Orange County, CA next March, then it sure as heck should be able to release the principal casting for City Center, Nutcracker (DC & NYC), La Bayadere in DC in January, and Giselle in Chicago in March. Tickets for these performances are or will shortly be on sale. What's the point of withholding the information from the ticket buyers? Oh, wait, maybe ABT isn't done lining up all of the guest artists as part of the company's Barnum & Bailey Initiative. Maybe they're trying to sign Chaz Bono to dance with Osipova for our enjoyment. It could happen. Really.
Still waiting for those promotions for the deserving soloists. Honestly, ABT must love wallowing around in the Public Relations Sewer.
