    I don't know what timeframe you have in mind with "next few years" but I, for one, would hope that (barring injury or the unforeseen) Nunez does NOT retire ANYTIME within what I understand them to be. Of course, any good director should plan for the future in making staffing decisions, which I think is O'Hare is doing well. I must be drawing a blank, but who is "Cut"?

  7. No, she was scheduled to, but did not dance it with ABT.
  8. Your assumption is correct! Osipova danced Olga in June 2012 during ABT's Met summer season. (If I recall correctly, she was originally scheduled for two performances, but only danced the first.) Diana Vishneva was the Tatiana, and speaking of Vishneva's Tatiana, her ABT farewell performance in the role, partnered by Marcelo Gomes, was absolutely shattering.
  9. I did not see the performances that were filmed, but I saw the same cast the previous weekend, and I agree with Angela's comments about them, as well as that Adam Cooper was a great Onegin. I've been watching Onegin since 1971, and have seen many wonderful Tatianas, and a few great Onegins, in a number of companies. Haydee remains for me the greatest, and though I think she perhaps took greater risks, at least in the mirror pas, with Richard Cragun (I have never seen that level of rapturous abandon elsewhere, although I thought Cojocaru came close in one pre-injury performance with Kobborg), for me Heinz Claus' characterization felt truer. Having said that, Maximova was a glorious Tatiana, and I loved Birgit Keil in the role (as I did in almost everything). I thought Rojo was a great Tatiana (and that dropping her on the following run was a heinous act), as was Ciaravola, and in more recent times Svetlana Lunkina. I've been deeply moved by the Onegins of both Lantratov and Skvortsov at the Bolshoi, and by Evan McKie at NBoC (not having seen him in Stuttgart). Besides Badenes, I'd single out Osipova and Tikhomirova in recent times as best achieving the wilfulness Olga should display, along with gorgeous dancing. Egon Madsen left his mark on Lensky for me, but the dancing of both Heymann and Polunin in the role just blew me away. I deeply regret never having seen Vogel's Lensky , as the video of his first act variation stuns me everytime I watch it.
  10. Thanks so much, Sim, for this great interview.
  11. I'd really like to read this, but everytime I've clicked on the link, it says the Gmail account is temporarily unavailable! I've tried 2 different browsers, to no . Help!
  12. Rehearsal ticket is sold. SCS for 29 November is still available.
  13. The Shrew, Nutcracker, Dame aux Camellias, and Giselle this season were always scheduled to be previously recorded, rather than live, cinecasts, and PatheLive 's original announcement was clear (see the original post above). I can't speak to advertising in the UK; here in the US, there's a small asterisk on the US website indicating a recording of a former performance. (But, following a change in the US distributor last season, even our so-called "live" cinecasts are all shown on a delay of at least 2 hours...)
