  1. A fuller cast list for tonight's opening performance is now here: https://www.roh.org.uk/events/whm7y Not complete though, as far as I can see - Rose Fairy, for example?
  2. For those of you going to the Royal Albert Hall to see BRB’s Nutcracker, don’t expect to see the same production as you will see in Birmingham. It’s a “special” version designed for the RAH. Still very lovely but quite different - just as the ENB “In the round” Swan Lake is different from the Coliseum production.
  3. Went to a very special Nutcracker last night in Berlin. It was really quite exceptional. Yuria Isaka and Daniil Simkin were the leads. Desperately trying to workout how to embed images in posts and failing miserably. Oh, think I finally suceeded. #
  4. I realize that this a strong proclamation, but I'm going to go ahead and say it: I have spent over half of my life in some capacity or another (dancer, choreographer, director, audience-member) involved with The Nutcracker and watching this production was like seeing it for the first time; I even surprised myself by how in-awe I was. Here's my review Anyone else with opinions about this production?
  5. The Traveling Ballerina

    Considering Chinese Stereotypes

    After reading an article in the NY Times the other night, I felt inspired to share a bit of my story from the perspective of a Chinese American dancer. Does anyone else have thoughts about this topic?
  6. It was good to see the Bolshoi's La Sylphide- a ballet I haven't seen for years, with the most beautiful woodland set from Peter Farmer. We were told that Johann Kobborg was watching this, his production, from a cinema in London. Worth it anyway for Semyon Chudin with his lovely line, impeccable feet and that lopsided smile. Does anyone know what went wrong in the interviews? Anna Balukova (Madge) was being interviewed by Katie Novikova , but with her eyes constantly in the wings and a growing sense of unease, and then she cut the question short rather brusquely, it seemed, and dashed off. A bit disconcerting.
  7. The Bolshoi's season of live cinema transmissions started today with Le Corsaire. Please use this thread to discuss the performances. I have to say, I thought the production looked stunning on screen, and that the dancers were generally framed pretty well - no parts of bodies escaping the frame during the dancing. I was a little surprised to find two dancers being interviewed about the roles of Conrad and Medora and then two completely different dancers performing the roles, though! Oh, and I still covet those beautiful white tutus from the Jardin Anime scene, even more so having seen them up close
  8. 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!
  9. Is it too early to start a Royal Ballet Nutcracker topic? I very much enjoyed the recent Insight: http://www.roh.org.uk/news/watch-live-rehearsals-for-the-nutcracker-with-the-royal-ballet-on-16-november-2017 I like seeing Christopher Saunders coaching: to me he just exudes confidence, energy and a great understanding of the detail and characterisation of the roles. And it's always such a pleasure to see dancers rehearse - Mayara, Tierney, Bea and Nicol in this Insight. There's also some cast changes: http://www.roh.org.uk/news/cast-changes-the-nutcracker-201718 Do hope dancers recover quickly from any injuries. But I think this means over the main Christmas period Anna Rose will be dancing Clara on 20, 23, 28 & 30 December and 1 & 2 January. Do hope she'll have time to enjoy the celebrations.
  10. I've just picked this up via Twitter: BREAKING NEWS: London, Christmas is coming... For the first time ever, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Royal Albert Hall are proud to present The Nutcracker! A new version of our universally-acclaimed, quintessential Christmas ballet will bring the festive season to life on the world’s most famous stage for seven performances from 28 to 31 December 2017 with spectacular new staging, video and projection created especially for this unique production. Featuring choreography by Sir Peter Wright, Vincent Redmon and Lev Ivanov (choreographer of the original 1892 production), The Nutcracker follows young Clara as she is swept away into a fantasy adventure through an enchanting winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes to the magical Kingdom of the Sweets. David Bintley, says: “Our wonderful Nutcracker has been an essential part of Christmas in Birmingham for over 25 years, and I am so proud to be part of the team producing a brand new version of our classic production for London audiences. There is nowhere more Christmassy than the Royal Albert Hall, and no other production that so fizzes with festive energy.” The Royal Albert Hall’s specially-adapted version will blend the best of the old and the new, using innovative projections from Olivier and Tony award-winning company 59 Productions (National Theatre’s War Horse, Sydney Opera House VIVID Festival) to bring to life the entrancing, wintry world of The Nutcracker. Tickets on sale Thursday 4 May at 9am. https://www.brb.org.uk/post/announcement-birmingham-royal-ballet-take-christmas-to-london
  11. 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
  12. Oo, i know, let's have a trip to London to see a ballet between Christmas and New Year. Oo, yes, we could see the Royal Ballet at the ROH, they're doing Nutcracker, or we could see the ENB at the Coliseum, they're doing...Nutcracker, or we could see the BRB at the Royal Albert Hall, they're doing....Nutcracker. I know Nutcracker is the great cash cow for companies, but with the BRB also in town, surely London only has so many nuts that need cracking, and some of us are over 12....
  13. English National Ballet Song of the Earth & La Sylphide Romeo & Juliet / Akram Khan’s Giselle / Nutcracker National Tour Wednesday 11 October – Saturday 2 December 2017 Performance times and ticket prices vary www.ballet.org.uk Continuing its commitment to taking world-class ballet to audiences across the country, this autumn English National Ballet presents five productions on its national tour. Two works new to English National Ballet’s repertoire, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s masterwork, Song of the Earth and August Bournonville’s La Sylphide recreated by Frank Andersen and Eva Kloborg, will be performed at the Manchester Palace Theatre (11-14 October) and Milton Keynes Theatre (17 – 21 October). First performed in 1965, MacMillan’s choreography for Song of the Earth was different from anything he had previously devised. Featuring three central figures, a Woman, a Man, and a Messenger, this powerful, moving exploration of life, death, and renewal is set to Mahler’s song cycle, Das Lied von der Erde, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. These performances of Song of the Earth coincide with the 25th anniversary of MacMillan’s death. Devised by one of the world´s leading producers of Bournonville ballets, Frank Andersen and Eva Kloborg’s faithful version of the 1830s Romantic ballet La Sylphide sees James wake from a dream on the morning of his wedding to Effy to encounter a mysterious sylphide before him, setting off a fateful sequence of events. Song of the Earth and La Sylphide will also be performed at the London Coliseum in January 2018. Winner of the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, Akram Khan’s Giselle comes to Liverpool for the first time, with performances at the Liverpool Empire Theatre (25-28 October). Hailed as “a masterpiece of 21st century dance” (Mail on Sunday), Khan’s Giselle is one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. Last season over 40,000 people saw Akram Khan’s reimagined Giselle performed on tour. The world’s greatest love story, Rudolf Nureyev’s Romeo & Juliet returns this autumn with performances at the Bristol Hippodrome (21-25 November). Featuring inventive and passionate choreography, and set to Prokofiev’s famous score, performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic, these performances mark the 40th anniversary of the production, which was originally created for English National Ballet in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. English National Ballet had its most successful Nutcracker run on record last season, when over 100,000 people came to see the production on tour or at the London Coliseum. This year sees Wayne Eagling’s Nutcracker tour to the Mayflower Theatre Southampton (29 November – 2 December) before returning to the London Coliseum, continuing the Company’s tradition of presenting a Nutcracker production each year since 1950.

  14. I am lucky enough to find myself in St Petersburg for a few days next month and should be able to make time for a visit to the Mariinsky. I am fine with practicalities (booking through the .ru and not the .com site etc) but would appreciate advice from all the knowledgeable Russian ballet followers here on what would be best to see. Available options during our stay are The Nutcracker in the new Mariinsky II or a programme (details as yet unpublished) called Michel Fokine's ballets in the Mariinsky itself. Casting is not yet available for either. I would happily do both but my partner will want to go to an opera in return for me dragging him to ballet, so I must choose one or the other. My instinct is to go for the Fokine programme, not least because it is in the historic theatre, which I would love to see. Does anyone have any other clues/insight into what I might expect from the Fokine programme or is it safe to presume that since it is the Mariinsky it will be good and interesting whichever ballets they pick? Or am I crazy to pass up an opportunity to see one of the 'Big 3' Tchaikovsky ballets done in its city of origin? As a follow up question, if the Fokine is the better option, where is the best place to sit in the historic theatre? There are still seats available at all levels from what I can see. Thank you in advance for any assistance!
  15. In celebration of Peter Wright's 90th birthday, The Royal Ballet present his 'Nutcracker' for the festive season (opening late November and running through to mid January). I was at one of the dress rehearsals, featuring the debut of Francesca Hayward, as SPF. Here are a few photos: Anna Rose O'Sullivan © Dave Morgan.

  16. A couple of interesting things from the Sunday Express review of Peter Schaufuss's Nutcracker - one is the photographs, the other is that apparently this production will be shown at this year's Edinburgh Festival and possibly in London. Hmm...
  17. Birmingham Royal Ballet's production of The Nutcracker begins at Birmingham Hippodrome today, celebrating the 90th birthday of its creator, Sir Peter Wright. If you see it, do let us know your thoughts.
  18. With the London Christmas shows now finished, over in Antwerp the Royal Ballet of Flanders have a Nutcracker premiere this evening in a non-traditional new version by choreographer Demis Volpi: http://uk.reuters.com/video/2016/01/23/royal-ballet-of-flanders-showcases-moder?videoId=367152141&videoChannel=81 And his Flowers certainly look different: http://deredactie.be/cm/vrtnieuws/videozone/nieuws/cultuurenmedia/1.2554376
  19. I wanted to open this thread to encourage comment on this run of 34 Nutcrackers. More from me about last night later.
  20. Dear All, Thank you in advance for any suggestion you might want to provide me with. Time has come for my wife and I to see a Ballet at ROH (it's actually gonna be a surprise for her). We just have a few days off work during the first week of January 2016. We have basically two options: Wednesday 6th - Takada, Hristov, Gartside, Maguire, Acri, Levitin Friday 8th - Nuñez, Montagirov, Avis, Hayward, Zucchetti, Levitin As far as I ma aware, Friday cast is more renowned and expert. However, seats available are just a few and we might have some problems with our schedule, having to fly out early in the next morning. Would wednesday cast be good as well? What do you honestly think? Should wednesday be our night at ROH, I need to reserve our seats. I have read that orchestra stalls might not grant a pretty clear view of the scene (apart from price issue). I was thinking of seating in the amphitheater, and benefit from the bird-eye view from there. B55/B56 are still available. Again, your opinion? Thank you again for your help.
  21. Scottish Ballet presents Peter Darrell’s THE NUTCRACKER 13 December 2014 – 3 January 2015, Festival Theatre EDINBURGH 7 – 10 January 2015, Theatre Royal GLASGOW 14 – 17 January 2015, His Majesty’s Theatre, ABERDEEN 21 – 24 January 2015, Eden Court INVERNESS 11 – 14 February 2015, Theatre Royal NEWCASTLE Choreography: Peter Darrell CBE Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky / Design: Lez Brotherston Lovingly recreated for audiences across Scotland and beyond, this winter Scottish Ballet proudly presents Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker, touring Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and Newcastle. Crafted for Scotland by the Company’s founding Artistic Director, a famous story-teller and an incredible dance-maker, this Nutcracker is full of magical memories. Audiences can now, once again, share this dream-making production with families and friends, over forty years since it first premiered. After a fun-filled Christmas party full of magic and celebrations, young Clara falls asleep and dreams that she helps the Nutcracker Prince to defeat an army of giant mice. She is rewarded by a visit to the glittering Land of Ice and Snow, where snowflakes come to life, sparkling as they dance – and the magical Kingdom of Sweets – the enchanted Realm of the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy. “I’d known about Darrell’s production of The Nutcracker when I was a child. The images of the hanging baubles in Act Two was in just about every dance book there was,” explains Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Christopher Hampson on his choice to reintroduce Darrell’s Nutcracker to audiences. “A Nutcracker production, for most ballet companies, is a very important part of the repertoire. It is normally the most performed work and needs to be something that will last for generations. Peter’s production had done that, but it needed to be rested so that it could be rediscovered again and brought back with a fresh perspective. It’s no accident that I’ve chosen a Darrell work to put at the very heart of our repertoire.” Peter Darrell’s magical world of The Nutcracker has been re-imagined for today’s audiences by Olivier Award winning designer Lez Brotherston, adding sumptuous layers of plush Victoriana and traditional festive fare to the original 1973 production. “This production will be as close to Peter’s original as possible - the point of bringing the production back is to see his beautiful, intricate choreography,” adds Hampson. “In terms of design, I asked Lez to take inspiration from the original designs. So, although they are different, there will still be a sense of the original production. “The essence of this being a family production is the key element – and we’ve looked to gently incorporate some new ideas for a new audience. We’ve been working closely with the Peter Darrell Trust to ensure that our new production has Peter’s intentions at its heart.” “The brief of the piece was unusual in that it existed before. It’s Peter’s production and it still feels like that – as it should do,” says Designer Lez Brotherston. “Peter’s original designer was Philip Prowse and that feels quite meaningful to me personally. Philip’s work was of great inspiration to me when I was at art school – he tutored me on my final-year designs and his influences have stayed with me. “It’s still set in the 1870s and has that sumptuous, rich Victoriana feeling – and there are bustles and tutus of course, but some of the costumes have been adapted to better show off the dancers’ line and the choreography. “Those who have seen the production before will remember Darrell’s famous Land of Sweeties – that’s still there although my sweeties are slightly different, and there’s a version of the Land of Snow too. My interpretation of the house is also a little different and maybe there’ll be something special about the toys that the children receive as Christmas presents – you’ll have to come along to see.” Darrell's enchanting production has claimed a special place in the hearts of audiences across Scotland for generations. It sparked the ballet careers of many young dancers who performed the roles of Clara and her brothers - including Scottish Ballet Principal Dancer Christopher Harrison who has seen his own dream come true and will be this time performing the star role of The Prince some twenty years later. Once again Scottish Ballet will welcome a very special cast of young, local dancers to the ranks of the Company's professionals for this inspiring production in which Clara, the littlest ballerina, is the one who visits the many magical worlds and saves the brave Nutcracker Prince.* Budding ballerinas and Nutcracker soldiers can also get involved in a range of fun Wee Nutcracker dance workshops in Glasgow and Edinburgh; download our special Fun Pack full of fun activities for kids to try at home or find out how Scottish Ballet's magical world of The Nutcracker is brought to life at Family Insights across the tour. Audio Described performances are also available, alongside free pre and post show talks where audiences can meet the dancers too. Adults can also indulge in some sugar-plum themed baked goods and dance sessions with Scottish Ballet's favourite tea-time treat, Ballet Cafe. Please see listings for more details. The Scottish Ballet Orchestra will also accompany the dancers live, performing the world famous Tchaikovsky score. *Read more about the children of Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker The children of Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker in 2014/15 will offer over 40 young people from across the country the chance to work alongside Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, Head of the Scottish Ballet Associates Programme Kerry Livingstone and Scottish Ballet’s dancers to learn, rehearse and perform as characters in the final production. Creating chances for young people to experience working with a professional company is vital to broadening the opportunities available and creating a thriving future for dance in Scotland – one that is particularly fitting for a Peter Darrell production, as he cast young dancers in his original production. The intended outcomes are to build on our history of developing classically-trained young dancers, taking talented youths on a magical journey where they are part of the story and theatre. These creative experiences can change lives. A number of existing Scottish Ballet dancers (such as Scottish Ballet Principal dancer Christopher Harrison), internationally reknowned choreographer Michael Clark and many others across ballet companies throughout the UK, were young dancers in Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker many years ago and have gone on to professional careers they might not have otherwise realised. Children were central to Darrell’s production, and we are keen to continue this legacy, with the central role of Clara being chosen from among this group of children. Children aged 9-12 auditioned for the life-changing opportunity of being involved in this professional production. For Edinburgh and Glasgow, almost 100 boys and girls from the Associate Programme and Dance School of Scotland auditioned, and the children for each performance were picked from five locations across Scotland and in Newcastle. Costume fittings have already taken place and they’ll begin rehearsing with Scottish Ballet from next week!
