How should the name of the composer of the music for “Serenade” be spelled? Most Westerners now spell it Tchaikovsky, but City Ballet took up, during Balanchine’s lifetime, the spelling Tschaikovsky. Why? Because that’s how the composer spelled it when he was in New York in 1891. (My thanks to the reader who sent me a copy of his Carnegie Hall autograph from the Pierpont Morgan Library.)
Most performances are in the evening; Sundays are usually matinées. Saturdays ordinarily have both matinée and evening performances. During the summer season at Saratoga Springs Thursdays have both a matinée and an evening performance in lieu of a Sunday matinée. The distribution of matinées and evening performances can differ when on tour. — Robert Greer (talk) 21:33, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
