Good news for ballet lovers in Saratoga Springs, New York. This morning, it was announced that New York City Ballet’s summer season at the outdoor Saratoga Performing Arts Center will be extended to two weeks, beginning in 2015. This summer, the company will remain under its one-week contract.
Saratoga has been slicing weeks off of NYCB’s summer season for years—at its peak, the company performed for four weeks straight. Maybe soon, NYCB can call Saratoga its summer home again. Performances this year run July 8–12.
