  1. Just found the programme booklet for the 2013 run ... I hadn't remembered that I saw two more performances on that occasion ... So this makes it First run 19/20/21/22/23/24 Sep 2011 (all evening performances) plus a matinee performance on 24 Sep. Second run 16/17/18/20/21/22/23 Mar 2013 (all evening performances) plus a matinee performance on 23 Mar. There was also an Insight Event on 13 Mar 2013. Iirc this was filmed and extracts were put on YT at the time.
  2. It was performed on consecutive nights for about a week in Sep 2011. I saw it twice back then and again last night, and it made me realise just how much I miss seeing Edward Watson perform, anything really. It's his eyes, that look of yearning, seeking understanding, seeking belonging as well as his ability to adopt, with his hands and feet, the movements of a beetle. I fully agree, the choreography, music, set, costumes and the cast all came together to create something very special.
  3. Theatres, opera houses and most other cultural venues in the state of Baden Wuerttemberg (Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, ...) will remain closed to the public until at least 3rd May 2020. Opening up will start on Monday 20th April with libraries and archives; museums will be looked at next. There'll be talks with cultural venues as to the steps that could be taken towards gradual opening up of those venues. https://mwk.baden-wuerttemberg.de/de/service/presse/pressemitteilung/pid/zumeldung-lockerungen-in-der-rechtsverordnung-der-landesregierung/
  4. Stuttgart Ballet will make available as VOD Cranko's Romeo and Juliet this weekend https://www.stuttgart-ballet.de/home/news-long/ I've added this to the calendar of events, I hope the time zone in the calendar works as intended.
  5. That's correct. Any loosening of the current restrictions is done very slowly though so effects can be assessed. E.g., with the exception of book / cycle / car shops that can open again regardless of size, other shops that have been closed since mid March can only open if their retail space is below 800 square meters / 8600 square feet. This is less about safety in shops than about the number of people in the streets going shopping. Equally, schools will start with school-leaving classes only. Etc. I thus think it'll be some time before the opening of cultural venues wi
  6. My assumption is that the season is pretty much done.
  7. The 18 months were being discussed prior to todays news conference. Based on today's conference - theatres and opera houses (and other cultural venues) remain closed & there is no timeframe mentioned - no large events prior to 31 Aug. There's no definition as to what constitutes a 'large' event in the document that was the basis for the news conference but I've seen a couple of articles that state that this will be defined by the various states - the measures as to what will reopen / remain closed etc. will be reviewed every two weeks Added link to ar
  8. Stuttgart Ballett in Cranko's Romeo and Juliet, available until 12 May. I hope at least one of the two links isn't geo blocked. https://www1.wdr.de/mediathek/video/sendungen/wdr-klassik/video-romeo-und-julia-ballett-von-john-cranko-nach-william-shakespeare-100.html or https://www.ardmediathek.de/wdr/player/Y3JpZDovL3dkci5kZS9CZWl0cmFnLTc1YzM0N2M0LWM2NDQtNDZhYi1hMDRkLTY3MmQ0MWYyMTA0MQ

  10. Zurich Opera has also set up a schedule of VOD, covering both ballet and opera https://www.opernhaus.ch/en/spielplan/streaming/
  11. Paris Opera set up a digital platform called the 3rd scene a few years ago. It comprises short-ish videos relating to dance and other art forms. https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/3e-scene
  12. I think they've added some performances for their tour to Japan and over summer? Fingers crossed things will go ahead as planned. I'll keep to online viewing for the time being though ...
