  1. I'm starting a new thread as the old one is just for triple bills.

  2. And the press release: English National Ballet Nutcracker / Swan Lake / Manon London Coliseum 13 December 2018 – 20 January 2019 www.ballet.org.uk This Winter, English National Ballet presents three critically acclaimed productions, Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Manon, at the London Coliseum. The company today announces Principal Casting for performances of Nutcracker and Manon, and, an additional performance of Manon. Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of English National Ballet said: “I’m thrilled that we’re able to give our London audiences as many chances as possible to see this wonderful production by putting on an additional performance. It's also a great opportunity for them to experience the remarkable talent shining across the whole Company, who have all really enjoyed bringing Manon to life." English National Ballet presents Manon, and also Swan Lake, at the London Coliseum in January 2019 following performances of both productions on tour in the UK this Autumn. Famous for its dramatic, challenging and expressive choreography, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon features some of the most demanding and fulfilling roles in ballet. Manon is accompanied by Jules Massenet’s haunting music performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. English National Ballet’s hugely successful production of the timeless classic, Swan Lake, choreographed by Derek Deane with music performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic, will bring some of the most iconic scenes in ballet, and Tchaikovsky’s glorious score, to London audiences once again. Continuing its Christmas tradition of presenting a Nutcracker production every year since 1950, English National Ballet’s Nutcracker returns this festive season, following sold out performances in 2016 and 2017. Over 100 dancers and musicians bring to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz of the Flowers, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

  4. The RB casting for Mayerling, La Bayadere, Infra/Unknown Soldier/Symphony in C , and Nutcracker has been announced (just received an email). Can't immediately upload it as the file too large... anyone else got this and able to share it easily?
  5. Presumably this will be announced fairly soon - I am thinking within a few weeks? With 24 performances (17 last time in 2015, 14 in 2013) there are all sorts of casting opportunities for Romeo and Juliet. Cast as Juliet last time and still with the RB were/are Cuthbertson, Hayward , Lamb, Naghdi and Nunez (plus Osipova, injured in 2015, also Hamilton, who was cast in 2013 and was on leave in 2015); cast as Romeo last time and still with the RB were/are McRae, Muntagirov, Bonelli, Ball, Kish and Soares. Naghdi/Ball is hopefully a given (including live cinema) but for example who will, and who should, partner Hayward this time (instead of Golding)? - Campbell? Sambe? Bracewell? Muntagirov? Surely a debut for Takada? I would also hope maybe for Heap? For Frankenstein, I see there was only Morera and Lamb as Elizabeth last time, and Bonelli and Dyer as Victor - with the creature shared betwenn McRae, Kish and Hirano. So again, some more scope for debuts?

I’m particularly thrilled to welcome cast members whose journey to this production came via our production of Lord of the Flies or through our Swan School which was designed to develop young talent for this company. My thanks also to Royal Ballet Director, Kevin O’Hare, who was as enthusiastic as I was about seeing Royal Ballet star, Matthew Ball, dance this role, and was instrumental in making that happen."
  7. English National Ballet Manon National Tour 17 October 2018 - 20 January 2019 www.ballet.org.uk/manon Continuing its commitment to UK touring and presenting world-class ballet to the widest possible audience, Autumn 2018 sees English National Ballet present Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon outside of London for only the second time in 30 years. English National Ballet will present Manon in Manchester (17-20 October), Milton Keynes (24-27 October) and Southampton (31 October–03 November) followed by performances at the London Coliseum (16-20 January 2019). English National Ballet, Manon. Dancers: Alina Cojocaru and Isaac Hernández © Jason Bell. Art Direction and Design Charlotte Wilkinson Studio. Famous for its expressive choreography and dramatic challenge, Manon features some of the most demanding and fulfilling roles in ballet. Manon is accompanied by Jules Massenet’s haunting music performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. The young and naïve Manon is torn between two lives: privilege and opulence with the wealthy Monsieur GM, or innocent love with the penniless student Des Grieux. Aristocrats and beggars, courtesans and harlots fill the stage as audiences are taken from a gambling den in 18th-century Paris to a desolate Louisiana swamp in this, one of British ballet’s most dramatic stories. Alongside Manon, English National Ballet also presents Swan Lake as part of its Autumn Tour.

  10. English National Ballet Lest We Forget Sadler’s Wells Thursday 20 - Saturday 29 September 2018 Tickets: £12 - £60 www.ballet.org.uk/lestweforget “true to its title - it stays with you long after curtain-down.” The Daily Telegraph Lest We Forget returns to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War Special performance held in partnership with The Royal British Legion’s Thank You movement Principal casting includes performances from Lead Principals Alina Cojocaru, Jurgita Dronina, Tamara Rojo, Erina Takahashi, Joseph Caley, Jeffrey Cirio, Isaac Hernandez and Principals Begoña Cao, Francesco Gabriele Frola, and Shiori Kase. After moving audiences and critics alike since its premiere in 2014, English National Ballet’s poignant reflection on the First World War, Lest We Forget, returns to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. Winner of the 2015 South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, Lest We Forget features three works expressing the experiences of those who fought in the war and those who stayed behind, from three of the most sought-after British choreographers working today; Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant and Liam Scarlett. Principal casting for Lest We Forget sees Lead Principal Tamara Rojo reprise the role of Lead Woman in Dust alongside First Soloists James Streeter and Fabian Reimair whilst First Soloist Crystal Costa, Soloist Aitor Arrieta and Artist of the Company Henry Dowden make their debuts in these roles, as does new Lead Principal Jeffrey Cirio who dances alongside Lead Principal Erina Takahashi and Reimair. Lead Principal Alina Cojocaru and First Soloist Junor Souza will dance Lead Couple in Second Breath. Lead Principal Joseph Caley and Principal Begoña Cao debut in these roles, and First Artist Anjuli Hudson performs with Artist of the Company Joshua McSherry-Gray. Lead Principals Isaac Hernández, who performs alongside Cojocaru, Jurgita Dronina and Caley debut in the Lead Couple roles in No Man’s Land. Cao and Souza reprise their roles in this work. In addition to its 13 public performances, English National Ballet, with the support of Sadler’s Wells, will gift a special performance of Lest We Forget to The Royal British Legion on Monday 24 September in support of its Thank You movement, remembering all who served, sacrificed, and changed our world during the First World War. This performance will be attended by members of serving and veteran communities. Winner of Best Modern Choreography at the 2014 Critic’s Circle National Dance Awards, Akram Khan’s Dust is “full of pain and power” (The Independent). Featuring 24 dancers, Dust is accompanied by a pounding soundtrack by Jocelyn Pook. Upon invitation, English National Ballet became the first ballet company to perform on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, when it presented Dust to an audience of 30,000 in 2014. A “devastatingly effective” (Daily Telegraph) piece, 20 dancers tilt and sway in semi-darkness - conjured by Michael Hulls’ lighting design, rising and falling, in Second Breath, by Russell Maliphant. Featuring recorded voices of survivors, Andy Cowton’s score is performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. In May 2014 Second Breath was performed at Imperial War Museum North and streamed live on BBC Arts as part of the Museums at Night festival. Featuring 14 dancers, seven male and seven female, Liam Scarlett’s No Man’s Land evokes the entwined destinies of the women working in munition factories at home and the men fighting in the trenches, culminating in an emotional pas de deux set to a score by Franz Liszt performed live on piano. In addition, Vera, choreographed by Company member Stina Quagebeur, will be performed on Monday 24 September as part of The Royal British Legion Thank You performance and on Tuesday 25 and Thursday 27 September’s matinees. Vera premiered in 2014 as part of English National Ballet’s programme for emerging choreographic talent, Choreographics, and is inspired by Vera Brittain’s First World War memoir, Testament of Youth. It was selected by The Breaking Glass Project to be performed in New York in the same year. English National Ballet is an Associate Company of Sadler’s Wells.

  11. https://new-adventures.net/news/casting-announcement-the-swan-prince-at-sadlers-wells Very excited - got tickets for one of the Ball/Mower performances!
  12. Now that ENB have announced their leavers and joiners, is there anyone I should be holding for? I normally delay booking for ENB until casting is made public, but as it's Swan Lake I can't be so sure of getting the kind of seat I want if it's only announced a couple of weeks out. For Sleeping Beauty Alina Cojocaru was an obvious first choice, but is there a must-see Odette/Odile at ENB (Rojo herself aside if she's still dancing it)?
  13. ...thought I’d read that ROH was announcing detailed cast lists today, but nothing so far...anybody know anything ?
  14. Casting is now up for BRB's Romeo and Juliet at Sadler's Wells next week https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/venue/sadlers-wells Tuesday June 12 Juliet Momoko Hirata Romeo César Morales Mercutio Tzu-Chao Chou Tybalt Rory Mackay Benvolio Yasuo Atsuji Wednesday June 13 mat Juliet Nao Sakuma Romeo Chi Cao Mercutio Lachlan Monaghan Tybalt Valentin Olovyannikov Benvolio Edivaldo Souza da Silva Wednesday June 13 eve Juliet Jenna Roberts Romeo Tyrone Singleton Mercutio Max Maslen Tybalt Yasuo Atsuji Benvolio Brandon Lawrence

  16. Manon casting is now up on the ROH website. so pleased to see Bonelli and Morera cast together after their sensational Mayerling!
  17. Casting just announced: https://www.ballet.org.uk/production/voices-of-america/#cast-section
  18. The casting for Giselle and The Winter's Tale has just been posted on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/giselle-by-peter-wright http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/the-winters-tale-by-christopher-wheeldon Edit: Age of Anxiety casting now added. http://www.roh.org.uk/mixed-programmes/new-wayne-mcgregor-the-age-of-anxiety-new-christopher-wheeldon It will probable be some time before we know the casting of the new works.
  19. Casting has been announced for The Sleeping Beauty at The Mayflower Theatre Southampton The much anticipated casting of Delia Mathews and Brandon Lawrence has been confirmed
  20. Some of it is currently on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/alices-adventures-in-wonderland-by-christopher-wheeldon http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/sylvia-by-frederick-ashton I assume the rest of it will be there soon. Edited to add that there's currently a problem with the listed Nutcracker casting. Calvert, Kish, Maguire, Dyer and Marriott are down to do every single performance! Edited again to record that this has now been corrected. They're now down for 2 performances rather than 24!
  21. Casting for the Royal Albert Hall now announced as follows (Prince/SPF/Clara): December - 28: Cesar Morales, Momoko Hirata, Karla Doorbar 29: Matinee - Brandon Lawrence, Celine Gittens, Arancha Baselga 29: Evening - Tyrone Singleton, Jenna Roberts, Laura Day 30: Matinee - Mathias Dingmann, Miki Mizutani, Karla Doorbar 30: Evening - Brandon Lawrence, Celine Gittens, Arancha Baselga 31: Matinee - Tyrone Singleton, Jenna Roberts, Laura Day 31: Evening - Momoko Hirata, Cesar Morales, Karla Doorbar Some nice casting, but I'm a bit disappointed that London isn't going to get the chance to see the Lawrence/Matthews partnership in this ballet, which is just magical. Ah well, fingers crossed for Sleeping Beauty!
  22. I cannot find another thread for this but wondered if they have announced Nutcracker casting yet for the London Coli season. The website is a bit frustrating as you can go into Nutcracker but it wants to take you straight to the booking at the Coli and I would like to see casting first if possible for the days I can go. Have I missed a trick from their website? Or perhaps too soon for casting announcements for December etc? Many thanks anyone with any more info
  23. Have we, as yet, got much in the way of actual casting for the mixed MacMillan celebrations? I for one would appreciate knowing if, for example, there are two different casts for Concerto/Baiser over the next couple of nights (and if so, which they are, in case I needed to choose!) Someone posted the ENB Song of the Earth casting somewhere else, that I know, but I'm not aware of anything else.

  25. I'm writing with a question...well, actually, several. My guess is that these questions have been asked and answered before. I did some searches, but a "Royal Opera House" + "tickets" and variants thereof turn up a zillion different threads, so I gave up. I have attended the Royal Opera House occasionally--usually when work has taken me to the UK--but not often and not recently. And I've almost never been able to plan carefully ahead of time. But this year may be different. Work will take Mr. Drewco to London in June--I'm coming with him and we plan to make a holiday of it when his work is out of the way. We hope to attend several performances of Swan Lake and, as we don't see a lot of world class ballet, we are willing to splurge on good seats if we can get them. I see on the Royal Opera House website that tickets go on sale for the general public in early April, but I have a few questions about the process: 1)When are casts likely to be announced? work dictates this trip but we have a little flexibility and casts could make a difference to our arrival/departure dates. 2)Any risk "friends" buy up much of the house before the tickets go on sale to the general public? 3)Are seats banked in all sections of the theater. I have a vague memory that Stalls circles are hardly banked at all--that row B or C for someone short, like myself, might be a disaster. (We are going to splurge if we can--but if we splurge we want to be able to see the stage). 4)Any advice about Grand Tier and Balcony seats? or sight-lines generally? Years ago I got some excellent advice on ROH stalls circles seats on an American message board and of course I remember the seats I actually sat in...But any thoughts from people here would be welcome--especially advice for short people. (My body has long since informed me that my standing room days are over.) Thanks for your patience with these questions...
