New York City Ballet Announces 2008 Winter Repertory Season and Annual Holiday
Engagement of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker™

Eight-Week Winter Season to Feature 13 Distinct Programs Showcasing 40 Different Ballets

Highlights Include World Premiere Ballets by Christopher Wheeldon and Mauro Bigonzetti,the Return of Peter Martins’ Full-Length Production of Romeo + Julietand Susan Stroman’s Double Feature,19 Works by George Balanchine Including Jewels and Prodigal Son, and Seven Works by Jerome Robbins Including The Concert and West Side Story Suite

The Season Will Also Include a Farewell Performancefor Principal Dancer Nikolaj Hübbe,
on Sunday, February 10

New York City Ballet has announced the programming for its 2008 winter season. The season will open on Wednesday, January 2, with George Balanchine’s three-part masterpiece, Jewels, and continue for 57 performances, through Sunday, February 24.

The Company has also announced the date for its Opening Night Benefit, which will take place on Tuesday, November 20, and the annual holiday season of George Balanchine’s The NutcrackerTM, which will run for 45 performances from Friday, November 23, through Sunday, December 30. (The repertory for the Opening Night Benefit will be announced at a later date.) All performances take place at the Company’s home, the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center

Among the winter season highlights are world premiere ballets by Italian choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti, who will make his third ballet for NYCB, and by the Company’s Resident Choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon, who will make his 16th work for the Company. Mr. Bigonzetti, who is the Artistic Director of Italy’s Aterballetto, will create a work to an original score by his longtime musical collaborator, Bruno Moretti. The ballet will premiere on Wednesday, January 23, as part of NYCB’s annual New Combinations Evening, which honors the anniversary of George Balanchine’s birth. Mr. Wheeldon’s ballet will premiere on Thursday, February 7; the score will be announced at a later date.

FULL-LENGTH WORKS
The 2008 winter repertory season will open with George Balanchine’s Jewels on Wednesday, January 2. This full-length abstract work, which premiered in 1967, consists of three parts: “Emeralds”, set to the music of Fauré, “Rubies”, set to the music of Stravinsky, and “Diamonds”, set to the music of Tschaikovsky. Jewels will be given five performances during the first two weeks of the winter season.

The season will also feature the return of NYCB Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins’ full-length staging of Romeo + Juliet which played to sold-out audiences for two weeks in the 2007 spring season. Mr. Martins’ production, which is set to the classic score by Sergei Prokofiev and features sets and costumes by Danish painter Per Kirkeby, will be performed in repertory for seven performances only, beginning Saturday, January 5, at 2 pm. The run includes two performances which have been added to the winter season schedule: Sunday, January 6, at 8 pm, and Wednesday, January 9, at 2 pm.

The third full-length work of the winter season will be Susan Stroman’s Double Feature, which premiered in 2004. An homage to the silent film era, Double Feature has two acts, each of which tells a different story: “The Blue Necklace” is a melodrama set to the music of Irving Berlin, and “Makin’ Whoopee” is a slapstick comedy set to the music

of Walter Donaldson. The work is one of two ballets that Ms. Stroman, a Tony Award winner for such Broadway hits as The Producers and Contact, has created for NYCB. Double Feature will be performed seven times, from Thursday, January 31, through Wednesday, February 6.



REPERTORY PROGRAMS
In addition to the three full-length ballets, the winter season will include 10 distinct repertory programs featuring a total of 37 different ballets. Each program will be performed three or four times during the course of the eight-week winter season.

George Balanchine, NYCB’s co-founder, will be represented by 19 works overall, including Prodigal Son and The Steadfast Tin Soldier, which were last performed in 2004. The season will also include two all-Balanchine programs. The first, “Balanchine’s World,” features Le Tombeau de Couperin, Tarantella, Bugaku, and La Sonnambula, and the second, “Russian Treasures,” features Serenade, Mozartiana, and Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2.

The Company’s co-founding choreographer, Jerome Robbins, will be represented by seven ballets, including the return to the repertory of such works as Fancy Free; Ives, Songs; The Concert (not performed since 2002); and West Side Story Suite. During the 2008 spring season, to mark the 10th anniversary of Robbins’ death, NYCB will celebrate its extraordinary Robbins repertory with a season-long celebration of the choreographer and his ballets.

In addition to Romeo + Juliet, the winter season will have five works by Peter Martins, including The Chairman Dances, set to music from the John Adams opera Nixon in China, and Thou Swell, Mr. Martins’ lush and romantic tribute to the music of Richard Rodgers.

In addition to the world premiere, Resident Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon will be represented by four works: The Nightingale and the Rose, which premiered during the 2007 spring season; the return to the repertory of Liturgy, with music by Arvo Pärt; An American in Paris, set to the classic score by George Gershwin; and Carousel (A

Dance), set to music by Richard Rodgers. The season will also include four performances of Russian Seasons, created for NYCB’s 2006 Diamond Project by Alexei Ratmansky, Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Ballet.

NIKOLAJ HÜBBE FAREWELL

On Sunday, February 10, NYCB will present a special farewell performance for Principal Dancer Nikolaj Hübbe, featuring four works that are closely associated with the dancer: Apollo and Western Symphony by George Balanchine; an excerpt from Jerome Robbins’ West Side Story Suite; and Zakouski, which Peter Martins created for Mr. Hübbe in 1992.

Mr. Hübbe is retiring from the stage to become the Artistic Director of the Royal Danish Ballet. His appointment to this position was announced in March 2007, and his official tenure begins in July 2008, to continue through June 2012.

Mr. Hübbe was born and raised in Copenhagen, and he began his dance training at age 10 with the Royal Danish Ballet School, ultimately joining the Royal Danish Ballet in 1986. Mr. Hübbe joined New York City Ballet in July of 1992 as a principal dancer, and during his career, he has performed most of the Company’s vast repertory and has had many works created on him. For the premiere of West Side Story Suite in spring 1995, Mr. Hübbe danced and sang in the role of Riff. He has appeared regularly with the Royal Danish Ballet and as a guest with many companies throughout the world.

In addition to his performing career, Mr. Hübbe is a faculty member at the School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet, and he has staged August Bournonville works for NYCB, SAB, the National Ballet of Canada, Ballet Arizona, and the Royal Danish Ballet.

Gonzalo Garcia to Join New York City Ballet as a Principal Dancer

New York City Ballet announced today that Gonzalo Garcia will join the Company as a Principal Dancer beginning with the 2007-2008 winter season.

A native of Zaragoza, Spain, Mr. Garcia received his ballet training at Estudio de Danza de amria Avila and at the San Francisco Ballet School. He joined San Francisco Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet in 1998, was promoted to soloist in 2000, and in 2002 was named a principal dancer. He left San Francisco Ballet following the 2007 spring season.

With San Francisco Ballet, Mr. Garcia danced an extensive repertory including numerous ballets by George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, and Helgi Tomasson. He has also danced featured roles in works by Christopher Wheeldon, William Forsythe, and Alexei Ratmansky.

Mr. Garcia made his NYCB debut in May 2004 as a guest artist dancing Balanchine’s Ballo della Regina as part of the Balanchine Centennial celebration. He is also a 2000 recipient of the Princess Grace Award, and in 1995 he became the youngest dancer ever to receive a Gold Medal at the Prix de Lausanne.

New York City Ballet’s 2007-2008 season will begin with the Company’s annual Opening Night Benefit on Tuesday, November 20. For more information please call 212-870-5570 or visit www.nycballet.com.

Of interest in Winter 2008:

New ballets by Wheeldon and Bigonzetti (interesting, as I thought this spring was Wheeldon's final one with the company, though this might be an independent contract)

Nikolaj Hübbe's farewell performance with the company - Feb 10

The rather unfortunate revival of 'Thou Swell', a Peter Martins piece which was fine for one gala, but should have been ditched long ago. The company brought it over to Copenhagen in 2005, and it hasn't aged well, and I found the singers absolutely dreadful on that occasion.

More roster additions and departures

New corps contracts:
Anthony Huxley
Sara Williams

Departed:
William Yin-Lee
Carrie Lee Riggins
Ashlee Knapp

Gonzalo Garcia's name still hasn't appeared on the NYCB rosting. I presume that they are just waiting for information - I think principals don't usually return for rehearsals until late October.

NYCB is adding two extra performances of Romeo + Juliet in January - the first ever weekday matinee (at least in recent history) and a Sunday evening performance:

Quote:
SPECIAL NEW YEAR PERFORMANCES: ROMEO + JULIET

2008 brings with it two rare opportunities to see the sold-out sensation from spring 2007--Peter Martins' full-length Romeo + Juliet . The January 6 Sunday evening performance at 8 pm and the weekday 2 pm matinee on Wednesday January 9 afford the opportunity of purchasing the best possible seats to enjoy this stunning new version of the world's best-known love story. This contemporary,. dramatic re-telling, with sets and costumes by Per Kirkeby, will fill your heart and eyes as Prokofiev's magnificent score takes over your senses. Plan now to take advantage of these additions to New York City Ballet's performance calendar and make this production your own.


More information


Also, all 4th ring tickets for the Winter and Spring seasons will be just $20.

This confirms my suspicions that a promotion had occurred since the photos of the principals had been removed from the lobby board. Two of these promotions are long overdue - Abi Stafford has long been one of the company's most promising dancers and Tyler Angle has danced a huge variety of principal roles.


For Immediate Release - December 17, 2007
New York City Ballet Promotes Three Dancers
Abi Stafford Promoted to Principal Dancer
Savannah Lowery and Tyler Angle Promoted to Soloist

New York City Ballet announced today that Abi Stafford has been promoted to the rank of Principal Dancer, and Savannah Lowery and Tyler Angle have been promoted to the rank of Soloist. The promotions are effective immediately.

Abi Stafford was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and began her dance training at the age of six with the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Ms. Stafford entered the School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet, as a full time student in the fall of 1998 and was invited to become an apprentice with the Company in November 1999. She joined the corps de ballet in January 2000 and was promoted to the rank of soloist in January 2002.

Since joining New York City Ballet, Ms. Stafford has danced featured roles in many of the Company’s works, including George Balanchine’s Ballo della Regina, Concerto Barocco, Cortège Hongrois, Divertimento No. 15, Episodes, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™, Square Dance, Symphony in C, Symphony in Three Movements, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux, Union Jack, Valse-Fantaisie, and Who Cares?; Jerome Robbins’ Fanfare, Glass Pieces, and Piano Pieces; Peter Martins’ Fearful Symmetries, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake; and Christopher Wheeldon’s Klavier. Ms. Stafford was named the Janice Levin Dancer for the 2000-2001 season.

Savannah Lowery was born in Largo, Florida, and began her dance training at the age of three at the International Dance Academy in Seminole. Ms. Lowery entered the School of American Ballet in the fall of 1999. In November 2001, Ms. Lowery became an apprentice with New York City Ballet, and in October 2002 she joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet.

Since joining New York City Ballet, Ms. Lowery has performed featured roles in many works, including George Balanchine’s Agon, The Four Temperaments, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™, “Rubies” from Jewels, and Raymonda Variations; and Peter Martins’ The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.

Tyler Angle was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and began his dance training at the age of nine with Deborah Anthony at the Allegheny Ballet Company. He entered the School of American Ballet in the fall of 2001, and in the fall of 2003 Mr. Angle became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. Mr. Angle joined New York City Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet in June 2004.

Since joining New York City Ballet, Mr. Angle has performed featured roles in George Balanchine’s Agon, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™, Liebeslieder Walzer and Symphony in C; Jerome Robbins’ 2 & 3 Part Inventions, Fancy Free, I’m Old Fashioned, and In the Night; Peter Martins’ Romeo + Juliet, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake; Sean Lavery’s Romeo and Juliet; Christopher Wheeldon’s Evenfall; and Eliot Feld’s The Unanswered Question. During the 2007 spring season, Mr. Angle originated the role of The Student in Christopher Wheeldon’s The Nightingale and the Rose. Mr. Angle was a 2002 recipient of the Mae L. Wien Award, a 2003 recipient of the Martin Segal Award, and a Jerome Robbins Scholarship recipient.

Sofiane Sylve has left the company. No news on why, but she'd been dancing with both the Het National Ballet and the NYCB, and it's possible that the trans-Atlantic lifestyle was becoming increasingly untenable. The rising cost of airfares may have made the air-commuting less cost-effective and there may also have been increasing hassles in going back & forth through US immigrations.

I decided to check out the new NYCB website (big deal) and could not find Sofiane Sylve. I have to assume she was let go or her contract was not renewed or whatever. I think it is sad that companies hardly ever inform fans of major changes. Ballet should be like sports in this regards. :cry:
