    Why is casting posted only on SFBallet’s Blogpage
    instead of being available more logically with programs?

    Agree about the inconvenience of casting only on the blog. Users aren’t directed to the blog until several days after casting actually appears there, so those who don’t know to look at the blog don’t know that casting is already available. Hope this gets fixed soon.

    Why did you send an email announcing casting yesterday only to change it today? I purchased tickets specifically to see a certain artist, and now she is no longer performing on that night (and I of course can’t change the tickets…or buy new ones given the price I paid for the original ones).

    I am disappointed because the casting has changed since last week. I wanted to see a specific dancer as Giselle, waited until this posted last week and got my tickets (at $80 a piece). Now, she is dancing on different nights. Why post the first list if it is either not final or not correct?!? I hope I can switch nights this late in the game.

    Please consider just outright removing the casting link on your page. It has not been used since the end of season last year and it may be easier to just make a note on the Programs page to refer to the blog for casting. To be clear, this is not to support the idea of the casting remaining here. I haven’t liked this change at all and miss the casting being where it used to be. The only benefit to this, and the word benefit is used with hesitation, is that the blog is linked to on the Ballet’s iPhone app. In summation, if this is where the casting will be from now on, just remove the casting link from the main site’s list or reroute it to http://www.sfballetblog.org/category/casting/. I won’t pretend to like it, but it help to know for most up to date casting to just look at the blog and bypass the main site altogether.

    I bought two tickets after confirming casting.
    I had waited until casting announced.
    BUT CHANGED!! WHY?
    I wanna cancel.
    Pay back my hard earned money, please!
    I feel I am deceived.

    Pretty amusing how people are commenting on here in distress about casting changes after purchasing tickets.

    Dancers are human and are susceptible to illness, injury and other matters. Often times, this results in casting changes, whether they be in advance or right before the shows. It’s not rocket science.

    >Kurt,

    Is anybody injured?
    I don’t know why the casting is changed so I’m outraged.
    I haven’t heard the reason at all.

    Hello! Due to dancer injury, casting had to be shifted last minute. We appreciate your understanding and hope you enjoy Giselle!

    Who’s injured?

    Well said, Kurt. I thought the same thing about the posters who were outraged about the casting changes after purchasing tickets. It always clearly states In the event of injury or illness, casting is subject to change. And how would they feel at the Opera House just before the curtain rises that a casting change is announced????

    Who’s injured? I just want to know accurate information. The announcement seems vague for me. I took the trouble to visit here from an Asian country for seeing a specific dancer. I have to go back to my country without seeing the dancer but I felt sorry for the person who is injured.
