10/8/2003 - Casting for the third week of American Ballet Theatre’s Fall season at City Center, October 22 through November 9, was announced today by Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie.

Highlighting the third week of performances will be the ABT debut of Amanda McKerrow as Hagar in Antony Tudor’s Pillar of Fire and the debut of Gennadi Saveliev as The Friend on Wednesday, November 5. On the same evening, Michele Wiles, Carlos Molina, Yuriko Kajiya and Jesus Pastor will perform the roles of the Couple in White and the Couple in Yellow in Martha Graham’s Diversion of Angels for the first time, and a new cast will debut in Sir Frederick Ashton’s Symphonic Variations.

The pas de deux from Flames of Paris, after the original by Vasily Vainonen, will be performed by Gillian Murphy and Gennadi Saveliev at the matinees on Saturday, November 8 and Sunday, November 9. The pas de deux was first performed by ABT in 1972 with choreography by David and Anna-Marie Holmes after the original. The complete four-act ballet received its World Premiere by the Leningrad-Kirov Ballet in Leningrad in 1932.

American Ballet Theatre’s Fall season at City Center continues through November 9. The season is sponsored by Movado Watch Company, a leading benefactor. ABT’s 2003 City Center season is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency.
