  1. Here are some rehearsal pictures from The All Forsythe programme. In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated Neue Suite - Svetlana Gileva and Jon Vallejo More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  2. And some from Part 2. Nadia Khan in Warrior of Light Xander Parish and Victoria Tereshkina in Black Swan pdd Sergio Bernal in The Swan More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  3. Remember that these pictures were taken during a technical and not a dress rehearsal, thus the artists are not in full costume or make up. Just a selection from the 14 act programme. Part 1 Stanislaw Wegrzyn and Mayara Magri in Coppellia Francesca Hayward and Frederico Bonelli in Giselle pdd Alexei Orlenco and Polina Semionova in Cello Duet (from Bach) Maria Alexandrova and Vladislav Lantratov in Don Quixote More pictures in www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  4. Interesting comments regarding the apparent under rehearsing. I had the pleasure to sit (and photograph) through the 5 hours of the rehearsal. They not only had to place but the lighting was being done at the same time. Imagine getting the 14 acts through with all the setting up and taking down in that time and I would like to congratulate Paul the stage manager in keeping the stars on schedule. Sadly of course they were mostly not in costume or makeup but to see these great artists in action was an honour. I just had to defend the comments. I will post some pictures in due course.
  5. Congratulations to all the Winners and Nominees, well deserved. I missed you all.
  6. And so say all of us. Happy New Year. Remember the guy who started all this.
  7. I was also at the rehearsal for Amore or better known as Francesca da Rimini with the wonderful Svetlana Zakharova as Francesca. Hope you enjoy the pictures as it is possibly my last ballet call. My legs are letting me down and it has become a struggle to mount all the stairs from Ealing to the venues. So thank you to all my balletco friends and enjoy your Ballet watching.

  8. Only the third part of the show was performed at yesterday's rehearsal at the Sadlers Wells. Dark as usual. Here are some pictures from the hard working company. The company in Bayadere - The Ninth Life Jack Thomson, Carmine De Amicis and Andre Kamienski More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  9. Not exactly Dance but as it is part of Sadlers Wells at the Peacock Theatre this amusing and acrobatic diversion could brighten up your autumn evening. Until 21st October. Some extracts from the current show Saloon, a cowboy theme. The company in Saloon Justine Methe Crozat The company in Saloon More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  10. The long awaited Acosta Danza Company are at Sadlers Wells until Saturday 30th September but if you do not have a ticket hope for returns. Quite a mixture, Watch out for Mario Sergei Elias, I called him mini Carlos, watch him go far. If you are expecting some Cuban tunes they are not there. The music is fairly percussive. The Twelve is very clever and well rehearsed. Here are some pictures from the rehearsal. Alejandro Silva and Carlos Luis Blanco in El cruce sobre el Niagara Mario Sergio Elias in Belles Lettres Marta Ortega and Carlos Acosta in Mermaid More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  11. Three short extracts from a dark and gloomy photocall of Hofesh Shechter's Grand Finale. On until Saturday at the Sadlers Wells Theatre. The Company in Grand Finale Members of the company Members of the company in Grand Finale More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk

    Oklahoma! at the Proms

    What a wonderful show, and the stamina. Did anyone see both performances. Robbie Fairchild was naturally smooth and would have been a great example to the other men. Marcus Brigstock was a revelation and well done to him. May try and see it again if I can get 3 and a half hours free.
  13. And some more from my camera. Sadly these set up shots lack the movement and atmosphere of a run. Viktoria Tereshkina - Nikiya and Kimin Kim - Solor Kimin Kim - Solor and Viktoria Tereshkina - Nikiya More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  14. A very short extract from Paquita. Here are some of my pictures. Viktoria Tereshkina and Vladimir Shklyarov with Artists of the Mariinsky Ballet Viktoria Tereshkina and Vladimir Shklyarov More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
