  1. Cast confirmation: Vladimir Shklyarov to dance in Marguerite and Armand on 5 and 10 June 2017 Vladimir Shklyarov will perform the role of Armand in Marguerite and Armand on 5 and 10 June 2017, replacing Sergei Polunin. He has performed previously with Natalia Osipova in Giselle and recently danced the role of Armand in St Petersburg with the Mariinsky Ballet.
  2. Sounds unmissable for me!
  3. Yes, Indigo, I have replied to you, the ticket is yours.

  5. Dear Bruce Wall, for me it is not “rather than”. Both reactions or feelings - “distressing over a cancellation” and “celebrating the glorious… talents of our home team” are naturally worthwhile for me.
  6. Osipova was staggeringly tragic today. The third performance of this cast was not just their best but truly outstanding. Already in the first act all scenes with other characters were not just masterfully performed but set pulse racing. Watson excelled in portrayal of human anxiety and hopelessness. He and Natasha so gave themselves to each other, clung to each other and created a great depth of feeling. A stunning duo!
  7. Marianna Ryzhkina had her first son at 21 and the second one at 27. It did not prevent her to become a Principal at the Bolshoi. Her elder son Klim Efimov dances now leading roles in Nutcracker, Raymonda, Les Sylphides. They even performed together.

  9. Thank you very much, RMM1. I don't know how I managed to type a wrong month. Probably, thinking at that time about my holidays in June. May be the moderators will be able to correct it in my post.

  11. BMC wrote: “I am also very firmly pro Osipova - I just find her endlessly interesting and I loved the way she was such an incredible driving force in the relationship. I'm sure she must be a real challenge to partner but for me the physical risks she took in the pas de deux made them seem a bit messy and therefore more real.” Yes, she is “a real challenge” in a very good sense - artistically and emotionally she is inspiring. Where technique is conserned her partners love to dance with her because she does everything herself - she jumps, ‘rotates’ and helps well with lifts. “Incidentally - does anyone remember the Hollywood film with Omar Sharif, Catherine Deneuve and Ava Gardner as the Empress?! Let's just say a far cry from the ballet (and the facts!!)…” Yes! And Geneviève Page as Larish and James Mason as Emperor Franz-Josef. And there was some ballet there. When Rudolf was watching Marie from his box at the theatre, there was “Giselle” on stage, and Giselle was danced by the tiny and charming Liane Dayde.

  14. Hi, shishm! Thank you for your reply to my PM and sending the e-ticket - but now I am waiting for your bank details to do transfer. My friend for whom I am buying your ticket has already reserved a train ticket from Bristol for the 28th. Looking forward to receiving a message from you.
  15. Hi, snishim! I sent a PM to you about the Amphi B34 ticket. A friend is desperate for that date. Thanks in advance.
