ABT is sending around a self-congratulatory letter with the fall season brochure which boasts that its Met Season ticket sales were $243,000 more than last year. Well, hello?! They had MORE performances this year than last. In 2011 there was no 4th of July performance. The ole math don't look so great now, dood it?
By adding that extra performance, they only got an additional $243,000? Why is anyone bragging about that?
Maybe some of the core audience isn't ballet alert enough to catch this but most everyone else will either figure it out or read it here and then claim that they figured it out.
