  1. Yes she performed the role in the last Osipova cast and I thought she was perfectly menacing. She's one of the few that I've noticed wickedly smile as she leads the Wilis towards Hilarion before his death. Very chilling and I hope she does it again!
  2. This thread inspired a lot of our conversation in the first episode of Season 4 of Open Barre (launched today) so worth a listen! I've shared the link below but you can also find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other various podcast platforms. Thanks! https://www.spreaker.com/user/openbarre/open-barre-s4-01

  4. In the first episode of Season 4 of Open Barre (launched today), Brandon talks a lot about his recent shows of Romeo.

  5. But three new Albrechts! Very exciting. I wish Anna-Rose was making her Giselle debut though...
  6. Does anyone have any notable stories of seeing a dancer's debut in a role and then seeing them perform the same role as their final performance? And how did the interpretations change?
  7. I think final performances are just as special as debuts and would be gutted to miss out on any final performances ...whenever they should happen! This is quite possibly the start of a different thread...but does anyone have any notable stories of seeing a dancer's debut in a role and then seeing them perform the same role as their final performance? And how did the interpretations change?
  8. When I spoke with Mayara she told me how much she wanted to dance Juliet - a role that I look forward to seeing her perform one day...
  9. I agree that we haven't seen a 'star' for sometime, but that's what makes stars so special. They should be once in a generation. I think it will be a long time until we see a Johan/Alina partnership, or the stage presence of someone like Polunin. That's not to say unbelievable talent doesn't exist at The Royal Ballet - I think as a whole they are in the best shape they've been in for years and a lot of that has to do with the ranking system. It's rare now for dancers to be made Principals at 20, instead they seem to rise up through the ranks which I would argue has given them time to nurture their talent and gain more experience. I am over the moon for all those who received promotions this year. In particular, I'm very happy about Leticia Dias, who I think has all the makings of being a great MacMillan dancer one day...
  10. Happy International Dance Day 2021! I thought it might be nice to have a bit of fun with this and ask: -If you could have dinner with any dancer, dead or alive, to celebrate International Dance Day, who would it be? -Where would you be having dinner? (Let's pretend Covid rules don't apply) -What questions would you ask them? What would you want to know?
