Mariinsky Ballet tickets go on sale at the Kennedy Center in one month (July 12th to the public, July 5th to members) for the October 17-22 run of La Bayadere. At least that company still feels some sense of responsibility for doing the steps. October is starting to fill up. There may not be room for ABT if they don't get their schedule out soon.
Casting is up for New York City Ballet's first week at Saratoga Springs. Taylor Stanley will debut in Stravinsky Violin Concerto along side Sterling Hylin, Chase Finlay, Rebecca Krohn. Taylor will bring a 1000 volt jolt to an already electric cast of this brilliant ballet.
