  1. Shame the telly cast was so dark but terrific shots of Wicky at the end.
  2. Whoops! Checkhov! Apparently he wrote that the Three Sisters was set in a town 'like Perm'. Not to self: don't try to show off!
  3. The ballet was staged in Perm by Stephan Wicks. He was particularly thrilled because there is a link between Perm and Tolstoy writing The Three Sisters.
  4. I really, really enjoyed this piece and am so pleased to have had the chance to see it. I had two regrets though. As I am unfamiliar with the company, my loss indeed, and was watching it on a pretty small screen, I was sorry that the two Principal ladies were not in more easily distinguishable colours. However, the second and far more significant regret is that we have so few chances to see Cranko's choreography and the Stuttgart company in general. I remember so clearly seeing Haydee and Cragun in Cranko's pas de deux Homage à Bolshoi, music by Glazanov. I would so love to see it again. It's very reminiscent of the first act mirror pas de deux in Onegin. They were something very special indeed.
  5. I remember a choreographic project when Stephen Wicks made a ballet to the St Paul's Suite. But then I would remember that wouldn't I.
  6. I agree too. I was staggered when I saw her in the street by the Hippodrome and she was absolutely tiny. Like Marion Tait she had a stage presence which belayed her small stature.
  7. May I say that my greatest regret from my years of ballet going was that I never saw him dance. I saw Maximova a few times but never Vasiliev. I know he is Sheila's favourite male dancer and she is someone whose opinion I hold in the highest respect. We are in total agreement in our adoration of Nicolas Le Riche so I am certain I would have cherished and opportunity I would have had to see and admire Vasiliev.
  8. This was covered by Lyndsey Winship in the Guardian. I didn't knew she knew BRB existed!
  9. She did. Remember that Macmillan's principal muse was Lynn Seymour but she seems to be getting increasingly airbrushed out of the story.
  10. I was there and find myself in bits EVERY time I see that clip. Utterly magical.
