Ballet Association: News of Upcoming Talks and Events

Recommended Posts

It was confirmed at tonight's meeting (with Natalia Makarova) that next week's meeting is cancelled owing to a clash with the RB schedule.  Anyway, that would have made it 3 meetings in 3 weeks, which I think is unheard of :)

Place: Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Avenue

Just a reminder that Alastair Marriott and Jonathan Howells are talking to The Ballet Association this coming Wednesday (see above for venue and travel details).

 

Maybe the casting mysteries for The Unknown Soldier will be unravelled but, certainly, it will be interesting to hear about the creative process. And what exactly is involved for Jonathan in being Ballet Master for La Bayadere (while Alastair is one of the High Bramin)?
