PATTI LUPONE WILL MAKE NEW YORK CITY BALLET DEBUT NEXT YEAR

According to Playbill, Broadway legend Patti LuPone will make her NYCB debut next year, in the company’s Spring 2011 season. She’ll act in a new production, by Lynne Taylor-Corbett, of The Seven Deadly Sins, a Kurt Weill ballet with libretto by Bertolt Brecht. Balanchine choreographed the original version of that ballet, which is about a character depicted both by an actress and a dancer.

I’ve never seen the ballet but I love LuPone. Something definitely to look forward to. For a little more about the history of that ballet, see the NYTimes ArtsBeat blog’s post.
