ABT's Gala dinner this Monday will have a little less glam because Irina Dvorovenko and Max Beloserkovsky were intentionally left off the guest list. Wow, ABT, such bad form and lack of style, not to mention poor manners. But then, who is surprised considering that both Max and Irina would be potentially excellent choices for directorship. Irina told The New York Post's Page Six that she understood that the dinner was all about fund raising, but that it would have been nice to have been invited to the performance. Like, you know, ABT doesn't have empty seats? Yeah, right...
Such bad form.
“This was my home for 17 years. These are my colleagues,” Beloserkovsky said. “I don’t know why we were overlooked. It’s a little upsetting. It’s not nice.”
You're so right, Max. It's not nice.
