The latest economy-related casualty in the arts: The planned June 26-28 performances of the Nederlands Dans Theater I, part of the ongoing Music Center dance season at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, have been canceled. There will be no replacement.
Josephine Ramirez, the Music Center's vice president of programming and planning, said that there was reduced donor giving, a decline in investment revenue and a shortfall in ticket sales for the dance series' most recent engagement, Miami City Ballet, Oct. 24-26.
"After weighing the options, we have made the decision to cancel the Nederlands Dans Theater I solely on the basis of our desire to manage our resources in the most prudent fashion," she said. Other Dance at the Music Center engagements will proceed.
