POB have announced their three live ballet broadcasts for the 2018/19 season and - outside of the Robbins' homage - are two Nureyev productions - his (white box) Swan Lake and the Hollywood Cinderella.  Source:  http://www.fraprod.fr/offres_cinema.php?prog=7

 

Thanks, Bruce!  I'm not sure what the geographic spread of these outside France is, but thought we should record it anyway.

We already have a separate thread for the (rather larger) offering from the Bolshoi here:

Just see that Australian Ballet are doing their Ronald Hynd's Merry Widow at cinemas on Sept. 20th. It's one of my favourite ballets but I've never been able to see it live as no UK or visiting Company seems to do it (though I have 2 recordings of it; one of them Australian Ballet) so it will be great to see it on the big screen. Next best thing to a live performance. I don't know how many cinemas are showing it but it seems to be at most of the Odeon cinemas.

Thank you, Amelia.  I didn't realise that Sands did film screenings.  (Their workshop is open for Open House weekend this coming weekend - it's worth a trip).

And, slightly sooner, the Australian Ballet's Merry Widow, tomorrow, it seems:

It does appear to be tomorrow only, as far as I can see:

I'm kicking myself for booking the first night of ENB's Lest We Forget bill!

Just thought I'd bump this.  Any other dates, anyone?

Just to warn anyone thinking of going to see Mayerling at Brighton Odeon on Monday, the cinema is closed until further notice due to fire alarm problems, I had booked by E-mail and luckily they have refunded me online. It will be shown at the Duke of York cinema instead of the usual Dukes at Kommedia.

Well, since my local (suburban London) is charging nearly £25 for the privilege, I shall be giving this one a miss - especially since I'm also having to cope with increased prices at the ROH.  It does however mean that I shan't get to see James Hay's Bratfisch, which is a real shame :(

Just a reminder that there's a repeat of the Bolshoi Don Quixote (new production) this Sunday (times may vary?), followed by a live Nutcracker from the Royal Opera House on Monday.

 

Given that the Bolshoi is a repeat, I wonder what the scheduling considerations were that had to put it a day or two in front of the Royal Ballet one (just like La Sylphide, but at least that one had the excuse of being live)?  I don't think it can help audiences for either broadcast to have them that close together.

But friends outside London are telling me that their cinemas are booked out for The Nutcracker.

Maybe, but are they the type of people who would go to see Don Q as well, I wonder, or do they just go for the Nutcracker because it's Christmassy?

Hm, casting for Sunday's Bolshoi La Bayadere a bit odd: is Nikita Elikarov so outstanding or are they running out of choices ?

I wonder who does the casting for the movie transmissions :blink:

Here is the cast for transmission on 20 January 2019:
Nikia - Olga Smirnova
Dugmanta, Rajah - Alexei Loparevich
Gamzatti - Olga Marchenkova
Solor - Artemy Belyakov
https://www.bolshoi.ru/en/performances/1/roles/#20190120180000

 

Nikita Elikarov will appear in the character role of Dugmanta, Rajah on 17 and 19 January.

Have you seen him, Farfallina? Why do you think that this casting is odd?

Yes, it is odd. Belyakov and Marchenkova have normally been cast with Stepanova, who also is the featured ballerina in the trailers.  All three are relatively tall while replacement Smirnova is on a smaller scale.  We'll see how it looks at the movies but I have my reservations. To your point, Bolshoi casting decision guidelines in general seem to be (1) director favorites (2) sponsor favorites (3) suitability for the role.  

 

Official Bolshoi theatre trailer wherein Smirnova narrates and (uncredited) Stepanova dances:

Thanks for the welcome, Janet.  I've been lurking quite some time now and thought it time now to jump in.
