  1. They were scheduled to dance that pdd at at Gala tomorrow at Karlsruhe, Germany, too, and Cuthbertson cancelled due to injury. He is now dancing with Elisa Badenes from Stuttgart. Back to Swan Lake, sorry.
  2. Alexander Jones, a class mate of Liam Scarlett at the RBS, then principal at Stuttgart and now at Zurich, posted this - looks like he is rehearsing Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House?

  4. Big companies normally synchronize their press releases about dancers who change from one company to the other, they publish them on the same day.
  5. Yes, that's odd. New at the Volksoper Vienna next season: a new Coppélia by Pierre Lacotte and a Peter Pan by Vesna Orlic. https://www.volksoper.at/premieres/ballet/season-2017-2018.en.html
  6. New at Vienna State Opera next year: a new Sylvia by Manuel Legris himself, a mixed bill with Artifact Suite by William Forsythe, Trois Gnossiennes and Solo by Hans van Manen, and Psalmensymphonie by Jiří Kylián. https://www.wiener-staatsoper.at/en/staatsoper/news/detail/news/the-new-season-2018-2019-at-the-wiener-staatsoper/
  7. I think that Staatsballett Berlin, ABT and Simkin himself announced his moving to Berlin on the very same day. So why should the Berlin company keep Kochetkova a secret now? Berlin also has Iana Salenko who is tiny and a perfect partner for Simkin.
  8. New at Ballett am Rhein at Düsseldorf/Duisburg next year: b.37: creations by Robert Binet, Natalia Horecna and Remus Şucheană a Ballet Gala on New Year’s Eve b.38: creations by Remus Şucheană, Martin Schläpfer and One Flat Thing Reproduced (William Forsythe) b.39: Dances With Piano (Hans van Manen), creations by Martin Chaix and Martin Schläpfer b.40: Pacific by Mark Morris, Locus by Trisha Brown, Night Wandering by Merce Cunningham and Offenbach Overtures by Paul Taylor A Young Moves 2019 evening with creations by the dancers repertory: Swan Lake by Martin Schläpfer

  10. In the season brochure for 18/19, which was delivered in print recently, she and Yonah Acosta are still listed as principals at Munich.
  11. As First Soloist, I forgot to mention.
  12. A new dancer for Bavarian State Ballet: Elvina Ibraimova, apparently a rising star in the Bolshoi corps de ballet, is dancing at Munich now, right in the middle of the season.
  13. Alastair Macaulay reports that ballet historian Ivor Guest has died:
  14. Lucia Lacarra, ex-principal at Munich and now principal at Dortmund Ballet, was appointed Director of the Victor Ullate Ballet in Spain, starting from autumn 2018. https://www.victorullateballet.com/en/noticias/la-bailarina-lucia-lacarra-nueva-directora-artistica-del-victor-ullate-ballet-comunidad-de-madrid/
