The H.H. UIEX hits the proverbial bull's eye again.
Tickets for Alessandra Ferri/Herman Cornejo/Bruce Levingston performances at the Joyce Theater on March 2-6 go on sale to the general public on December 11th. It sounds like Preljocaj's Le Parc could well be part of the program.
Miami City Ballet is also coming to Lincoln Center as a Joyce Theater presentation April 13-17. Wouldn't that be fab-u-lous if we got to see our very own Simone Messmer in Balanchine's one-act Swan Lake? By the way, she is performing Odette again this Friday in West Palm Beach during MCB's rep program there.
Edited to add: AND according to NYT, Angel Corella is bringing Pennsylvania Ballet as part of the Joyce season. How lucky would we be if he brought his brand new Don Quixote!
Out west this evening, our very own Stella Abrera and Marcelo Gomes will be guest artists at the DanceFAR (dance for a reason) cancer research institute benefit. It is being organized by SF Ballet's James Sofranko. Do you remember Sofranko when he was still in short pants at The Juilliard? Haglund must have seen most of his performances during those years and especially enjoyed it when he was teamed up with an adorable frizzy-haired girl named Annie. Her last name escapes us, but it began with a Z. What a charismatic group of kids they were.
Then, over Thanksgiving weekend, our Stella along with Devon Teuscher and Hee Seo will perform with Roberto Bolle in Balanchine's Apollo while Gustavo Dudamel conducts the LA Phil at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. This is a don't miss if you are within a thousand miles of it.
