If ever a ballet company couldn't afford a misstep, American Ballet Theatre--$5.7 million in debt--is it, said Gary Dunning. ABT's new executive director is working on a stabilization plan that he can show prospective ABT funders. "We have to convince the community and funders that we're still here and that we're going to make it with their help," Dunning said. "We have to make sure we make no mistakes."

Composer Mark-Anthony Turnage's biographical opera of the late Anna Nicole Smith will jiggle its way to the U.S. in September in a production from the New York City Opera. The piece will be staged at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, which is co-producing.  "Anna Nicole" had its world premiere in 2011 at the Royal Opera House in London. The opera, with a libretto by Richard Thomas, follows Smith's rise to fame and her marriage at the age of 26 to the then-89-year-old oil magnate J. Howard Marshall.  In the London production, Smith was played by Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek.

He won't be dancing "Swan Lake," but the world's best-known ballet dancer, Mikhail Baryshnikov, will appear on stage at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza in April. Plagued by injuries and the natural aging process, Baryshnikov has left ballet behind in recent years, focusing instead on modern dance. He will dance with the White Oak Dance Project on April 25 and 26 at the Charles E. Probst Center for the Performing Arts.

Trying to help people in trouble sometimes results in more trouble. Take the New York-based Howard Gilman Foundation, for instance. In early February, the foundation came to the aid of the Donetsk State Opera and Ballet Theatre, touring with several Soviet dance soloists under the name, "Stars of Russian Ballet." According to the original tour sponsor, Heart of Art Inc. of Santa Rosa, Calif., the company was scheduled to visit 15 East Coast and Midwestern cities. But Heart of Art says its financial backers withdrew their support when only one of 10 promised stars showed up. The tour then broke down, stranding the dancers in Baltimore after only two performances.

No, Mark Morris is not going to play the cello, and Yo-Yo Ma won't don a leotard. But they will offer a unique collaboration this weekend in sold-out performances at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. Dancer-choreographer Morris and cellist Ma normally appeal to separate constituencies. Tonight, they pool their drawing power with Ma performing in accompaniment to the Mark Morris Dance Group. Ma will play scores by Bach (for "Falling Down Stairs") and Lou Harrison (for "Rhymes With Silver").
