Upcoming possible ballet trips: Your input required!

It's that time of year when the repertoire for summer festivals and the 2012-13 season is starting to be announced, so please let me know if you would be interested in any of these possibilities.

1) New York City Ballet in Saratoga Springs
Saratoga was hugely popular last year; you can read all about it here:
http://toursenlair.blogspot.com/2011/07/ballet-binge-in-saratoga-springs.html.
 It looks like this year we will have to make it a mid-week excursion rather than a weekend, dates Wednesday 18-Friday 20th July. Performances are Peter Martins' Romeo + Juliet and a mixed program, rep to be announced (doubtless including some Balanchine!).

2) Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur (Quebec)
This would be August long weekend, Friday 3rd - Monday 6th. You can read more about Saint-Sauveur here: http://toursenlair.blogspot.com/2011/08/festival-des-arts-de-saint-sauveur.html.
Rep is still to be announced but I hear that the Hong Kong Ballet will be participating.

3) National Ballet of Canada in London
As you may know, the NBOC will be presenting Romeo and Juliet  at the Sadler's Wells Theatre, April 17-21, 2013. Doubtless there will be other ballets on either at the Royal Opera House or the London Coliseum, or possibly a short day trip away.  Please let me know if you would be interested in a trip to "cheer on the team", so to speak.

4) Japan!
Yes, you read that right. I'm just back from my sixth trip to Japan. It is really a fabulous place with some great ballet performances, and I would love to take a group there. I'm thinking of May 2013, when the gardens would be a blooming riot (except nothing is ever riotous in a tranquil Japanese garden). Please let me know if you have any interest in a trip to Japan.
