  1. BRB opened their Autumn season with David Bintley's Aladdin at The Lowry yesterday. This production is a great family entertainment and last night we were treated to a dazzling performance from the whole company. Mathias Dingman was a real young man about town until he fell in love at first sight with the Princess. Momoko Hirata was just divine as the Princess. Iain Mackay frightened the life out of me as the Maghreb and Tzu-chao Chou was a pocket rocket as the Djin! Nao Sakuma and Tyrone Singleton set the stage alight as the Rubies. What a great start to the season.
  2. Something to look forward to later this year: David Bintley's new full-length adaptation of "The Tempest", which premieres at the Birmingham Hippodrome on 1st October. I can't wait! ETA: Damnation, I should have posted this in Dance News...

Food for thought?
  5. A nice (long) video from Houston, with some dancing: http://youtu.be/z1aOFJhRZDY <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/z1aOFJhRZDY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  6. Birmingham Royal Ballet open their Spring season with Prince of the Pagodas at the Lowry on 30th January 2014. Could people please post their thoughts on performances of the work on this thread. The Company has released a post about the creation of masks for the Salamander Prince. Here is the link.
  7. Janet's already flagged this in the Links section, but I thought it might be useful here, too: http://www.thestage.co.uk/news/newsstory.php/36057/royal-ballet-director-highlights-issue-of As part of Dance UK's nutrition and eating disorders conference, Dame Monica Mason (and later David Bintley) discussed eating disorders and what they look for in hiring dancers. If anyone who's more familiar with this part of the forum than I am knows of a thread it can usefully be merged into, please let me know.
