That's brilliant @Amelia, thank you My mother, who's a big fan of the cinecasts, was bemoaning having to miss it, as we were at ENB's Manon, so she'll be delighted to find she can see it after all.

Here is the cast for transmission on 20 January 2019:
Nikia - Olga Smirnova
Dugmanta, Rajah - Alexei Loparevich
Gamzatti - Olga Marchenkova
Solor - Artemy Belyakov

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?

Thanks, Amelia, I got the dates wrong when looking up the cast. When I see a member of corps de ballets being casted for a leading role I wonder if it's an outstanding talent like Osipova and Vasiliev or if they are short of principals due to illness and other obligations. I've seen in Amsterdam such a cast in Spartacus and wasn't too impressed. Never saw that dancer being casted in a leading role again.

Casting seems to follow what you are describing. I would like to see more variety. They have so many wonderfull dancers. I would like to see e.g. Maria Vinogradova and more of Ovcharenko.....

Those who didn't go to cinema this afternoon, can watch Bolshoi's La Bayadere here now:

http://media.bolshoi.ru/play/#/vod/play/435

 

As of Tuesday evening it is displaying a login page requiring email and password.

 

A shame as my local cinema had a problem with the RB cinema relay, so I got to listen to the first act music whilst I ate and then went home. I'd notice this in the schedule, but ended up not being able to go, though I wasn't sure I wanted to as I'd heard some awkward things about possible racism. Also I didn't know how it would be presented, I find I quite like the introduction and interviews you get with a RB cinema relay and I'm not familiar with La Bayadere, the RB relay was supposed to be my first time seeing it.

Absolutely spitting fury here as our extremely inadequate local cinema will not be showing Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake and I’ve wanted to see since 1995! How can they do this to our city? 😞

Do we know who is doing the presenting the live transmission of Don Quixote tomorrow evening and any idea of who might be interviewed? I imagine that Carlos Acosta may be featured. So enjoy these mini segments during the intervals.

Unfortunately I got to my local cinema this evening only to find that the Don Quixote screening had been cancelled at the last minute due to ‘technical issues’. Gutted to be missing Akane Takada and Alexander Campbell but hope everyone else is able to enjoy.

Oh that's disappointing Riva. Do you think they will have a repeat showing...may not be "live" but better than nothing!

The staff didn’t seem sure, I’ll try to keep an eye out. I’d be happy watching a repeat. I’ve got written in my diary that the encore screenings are this Sunday but I’ve already booked for the Ashton Foundation event so that will have to take precedence, however enticing Akane and Alexander are. I’d hoped that I wouldn’t have to make a choice but these things happen. Fire alarm during the general rehearsal and now this!! 

 

I’ll very much look forward to hearing everyone else’s thoughts on the screening tonight though.

My local cinema is doing its Don Q encore on Monday so perhaps you could find one near you that is also doing that day.

Yes, you might be in luck.  Check both the "Encore" and "Recorded" settings on the ROH cinema search page.  I happen to know there's one Tuesday afternoon in Stratford, but beyond that I think most of the London repeats seem to be on Sunday :(

Same here...what a shame, I was really looking forward to seeing them both ☹️ I can't make the encores so I can only hope for a DVD maybe!

So sorry to hear this - what a shame for those who missed it. It was such fun, and great to see all the detail in close-up. I do hope you can find encore screenings, Serenade and Riva. Picturehouse are doing one on Monday.

Not wanting to be a party-pooper either, but a couple of years ago I went to a live relay - and its Encore - and we had serious technical issues at both.  The management took everyone's contact details down, said they'd contact the ROH to see if some sort of repeat could be arranged - we never heard a thing :(  Hoping you both manage to get something sorted - *and* that it was the same cinema.  I'd hate to think of multiple failures.

I've received an email from the ROH today reminding me of the Encore showings for Don Quixote (largely this coming Sunday, although may vary according to venues).  It says, among others:

 

"Darcey Bussell is joined by broadcaster Ore Oduba to give audiences around the world a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes as they present the cinema relay."

 

Funny, it looked very much like Kristen McNally on Tuesday night!

Honestly - ??!! Do they just cut and paste the text from last time??

I've just spotted a cinema listing for tomorrow morning for Northern Ballet's The Elves and the Shoemaker, so on the assumption that it's not a one-off I thought I'd post a general reminder about it.

It's still available on Culturebox

I don't know for how long.

However it may be geoblocked, in which case you will need a VPN to view it.

"Acces réseau indisponible".  Not sure whether that means there's a network problem, or whether it's geoblocked.  I'd have expected something a bit more explicit if it was the latter, but who knows?

Oops, nearly missed it!  Bolshoi Sleeping Beauty on tomorrow (or technically today), although it's a repeat from 2017.  I don't remember it - I only remember the broadcast with Hallberg, which must have been a couple of years previously, I guess.

That was Smirnova/Chudin in 2017 wasn't it, Alison?

Yes it was, with Stepanova as Lilac.
