It still isn't too late to join me for The Washington Ballet’s 2012.13 Season, SEDUCTION. You have until MAY 25th to be a part of our inspiring upcoming season and celebration by renewing your subscription. Like the Sirens of yore, we are deliberately setting out to tempt you with the most sensuous, sublime and provocative dance in a mix of the new, the recent, the unfamiliar and the classic. Our season expands to five subscription programs accented by explorations into classical literature with the world premieres of Hemingway: The Sun Also Rises and David Palmer’s Dangerous Liaison and the company premiere of Michael Pink’s Dracula.

I think we have a hit on our hands. Standing ovation tonight was immediate following the preview performance of ¡Noche Latina!. I just dropped off two giddy choreographers (Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Eddie Liang) and a giddy costume designer (Aviad Arik Herman) at their respective apartments after a post-performance supper where we replayed the triumph scored by the artists on stage tonight. Dancers were in fine form. It’s amazing how all the works gelled in such a short amount of time. It’s really quite unbelievable we had 3 short weeks after wonderful ALICE to put all 3 premieres together. My head is still spinning.

The Nutcracker kicked in to gear the last weekend of September with auditions at THEARC and then in NW. A huge number of dancers auditioned and the year a record number 425 dancers are performing in Nutz over multiple casts. Thank heavens for Donna Glover and her army! We expanded the run to five weeks- Thanksgiving week at THE ARC and then four weeks at The Warner. As I type this (with my thumb on my phone!) we've of five more shows left. I've given the dancers the green light to do a "Nutty Nutcracker" on the last show. I'll miss that performance dammit-I'll be in Texas visiting my family and we'll all likely be swimming in mojitos by then. I just hope the dancers keep it clean. :-)
