  1. It was announced in the Winter Update a couple of months ago but I think she deserves her own thread, assuming this is her last day. Very best wishes to Alina Cojocaru for the future and whatever plans she has. Although not a regular at ROH I first saw her as Titania in The Dream when she was about 19, just before she was promoted to principal. She has been one of the very brightest stars in the British ballet firmament during her whole career. Don't forget that she is Manon in the ENB on demand recording available from today.
  2. English National Ballet to release Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon on Ballet on Demand English National Ballet presents Kenneth MacMillan’s romantic tragedy Manon to online audiences via the Company’s Ballet on Demand streaming service. A full-length recording of the ballet will be available to rent for £7.99 from 10am on Monday 01 March 2021. Known for its expressive choreography and dramatic storyline, Manon features some of the most demanding roles in ballet. The story follows the young and naïve Manon who is torn between two lives: privilege and o
  3. I think everyone has responded with things that I wish for. In terms of ballet, I want to see our companies performing without restriction with full audiences cheering them on. I really want to see Northern Ballet's Swan Lake and Geisha amongst others. I want to see BRB's Cinderella and for them finally to be able to perform Don Quixote. I want to see Scottish Ballet's The Scandal at Mayerling. I want to see ENB's Raymonda. I want to meet up with family and friends and eat out and drink out with them. I want to be able to wander and browse aro

  6. Hello Anca-Yvette and welcome to the Forum! I've moved your post over to the Doing Dance forum, where the doing of dance is discussed.
  7. Hi Jeanette, I opened the window when I saw your posting last night. I refreshed it this morning and it worked!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it. OK, some of the choreography may have seemed a little generic but I have seen several versions of Bolero and I think the music just demands certain movements. I enjoyed the way it was filmed too. Thanks!

  10. I'd love to see this as I have very fond memories of the choreographer Yoshi Arai as a dancer with Northern Ballet. In fact it was lovely to see him and have a chat at Northern Ballet's 50th Gala in January 2020 (when life was still normal!).
  11. Are you asking about Northern Ballet in Leeds?
