New York City Center, as part of its 75th anniversary, has announced a series of events throughout the coming year. I noticed from October 31 until November 4 a series of performances dedicated to Balanchine - the City Center Years (City Ballet were resident at City Center for 15 or 16 years before moving to State and Balanchine created many works for the company on that stage). There are several participating companies listed including the Royal Ballet (others include, as well as NYCB, Paris, Joffrey, Miami and the Mariinsky). As the Royal are due to be performing Mayerling and Bayadere at the opera house that week, I assume that the Royal's participation must be limited to a couple of dancers sent over to perform, say, a pas de deux. Does anyone with a greater knowledge of the company know what the intentions are? It's only five days of performances, but it looks potentially very interesting.
An exhibition with the title "American choreographers at the Paris Opera" runs at Palais Garnier until 25 September, showing costumes and pictures (and videos?), and tracing developments since 1947. Quite a bit of information on the web site as well https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/visits/exhibitions for those who won't be in Paris over the summer.
