Statement of purpose[edit]

This is the fourth in what is planned as a series that will document the New York City Ballet's dances and casts season by season. — Robert Greer (talk) 17:02, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

additional lists[edit]

In addition to lists for their spring and winter seasons at the New York State Theater, there will be lists for City Ballet's summer season at Saratoga Springs and their winter tours. — Robert Greer (talk) 01:41, 5 April 2011 (UTC)


Casting becomes available a week or two before performance and is subject to change right up to curtain time. — Robert Greer (talk) 01:41, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Tschaikovsky vs. Tchaikovsky[edit]

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.)

Week one[edit]

Week one of the 2008 Summer season at Saratoga Springs is not recorded. — Robert Greer (talk) 01:49, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Matinée vs. evening[edit]

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) 18:09, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
