  1. The Bolshoi have announced three cinema broadcasts for next season, all obviously recordings. 4 October + Romeo and Juliet 1 November + La Dame aux Camelias 20 December - The Nutcracker They are obviously hoping to be able to broadcast some live in 2021 as they haven't announced any thing further. Let's hope they can.
  2. I really don't think this is going to be much help at all, especially as there seems to be no sign of any financial help. https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/theatre/oliver-dowden-culture-roadmap-plan-a4480341.html
  3. The reason for only showing Act 3 of Coppeila is given as the following on the Lincoln Centre website A note on this performance of CoppéliaThe decision was made by New York City Ballet and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to stream the third act of Coppélia instead of the full-length production. The production from that time included, in the second act, the character of a Chinese doll wearing a mask and making movements that were ethnically and racially insensitive. In recent years, New York City Ballet has changed the costume, make-up design, and movements for this character to eliminate the Yellowface signifiers. The program that will stream on Monday better aligns with the values of NYCB and Lincoln Center. We commit to continued examination of this alignment moving forward.
  4. Just received an email to say the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff has cancelled all performances until 17th January 2021. Not many major dance companies go there (although BRB did perform there a few years ago) but all the big musicals go there, similar receiving house to the B'ham Hippodrome.
  5. it finishes at 19.00 Moscow time zone, which I think is 16.00 our time, so not long left to view it.
  6. I’ve just received an email from NYCB saying “New York City Ballet’s stream of Coppélia has been postponed until Saturday, June 6 at 8 PM (EDT).”
  7. Having just watched ENB’s Swan Lake I noticed on YouTube they will be showing Song of the Earth on 17th June.
  8. The performances of the triple bill at Sadler’s Wells and Don Quixote have all been cancelled. If you go to the What’s On section of their website it says cancelled against those performances but they haven’t put the information on their Covid 19 update page, which is where I would expect to find it. I haven’t received any communication from the company or the Hippodrome or Sadler’s Wells about the cancellations.
  9. I echo what jmhopton says but also in relation to BRB. I know there is not much commercially available but they must have a lot recorded for archive. They occasionally show snippets from works on Facebook (recently Checkmate and Pineapple Poll) which seem to have been recorded at dress rehearsals as you can hear the clicks from photographer’s cameras. They also had a video archivist on the staff at one time. It would be great if some of these could be made available the way NYCB are doing with their archive recordings.
  10. The magazine Dance Europe is suspending publication while the pandemic continues as most of their content is usually reviews of performances, which obviously there are none at the moment. However they have a produced a complementary digital only edition available here https://www.danceeurope.net/secure/articles/viewer/10/comp-dig-edition/index.html As well as articles to read there are also some videos to watch. The first of these, on the editorial page, consists of dancers from around the world talking about how they are coping with lockdown. This lasts for just over an hour and includes, among others, Valentino Zucchetti, Brandon Lawrence, Mara Galeazzi, Hannah Bateman and Xander Parish. Articles on the role of Siegfried in Swan Lake, backstage at the Maryinsky, Kosuke Yamamoto and others.
  11. Yes I saw this at the cinema in 2016. I think the schoolgirl was Xenia Pchelkina (Ksenia Pehelkina?) if the character’s name is Gala.
