  1. Did we know that tomorrow (Thursday 13th) at 7:30 pm there will be a Swan Lake rehearsal live stream? I didn't. Here is the link
  2. For the record, my best guess at casting. Debuts with asterisk. Missing dancers, or dancers I was expecting to appear but didn’t, are in brackets. Florestan is a mess. Not comprehensive. Did you see them all? I didn’t, lost 4 shows to the train strike. The one I did see was the most important one though. O’Sullivan’s debut will live long in the memory. Lilac (5) - Kaneko, Magri*, Calvert, Mendizabal, Storm-Jensen (Stix-Brunell, Heap) Carabosse (5) - McNally, Mendizabal*, Forskitt (guest), Arestis, McGorian (Cowley) Crystal Fountain (4) - Stix-Brunell, Turk, Pajdak, Choe (Cowley, Stock) Enchanted Garden (3) - Magri, Hinkis*, Stix-Brunell (Heap) Woodland Glades (4) - Calvert, Hang*, Kaneko, Hamilton Songbird (4) - O'Sullivan, Maeda*, Hinks, Gasparini (Stock) Golden Vine (4) - Choe, Dias*, Hamilton*, O'Sullivan Florestan (9,6,6) - Hay, Magri, O'Sullivan; Richardson*, Buvoli*, Pajdak*; Acri, Hinkis, Stix-Brunell; Ella/Donnelly*, Gasparini, Sasaki; Edmonds with Pajdak, Hamilton and Dias*, Calvert; also Dubreuil*; Zucchetti; Clarke White Cat (4) - Stock, Kay; Bradbury*, Emerton*; Ella, Allnatt*; Dean, Dixon* Bluebird (7+1) - Hayward, Sambe; O'Sullivan, Sissens*; Hamilton*, Corrales*; Hinkis, Hay; Choe, Acri; Naghdi, Ball; Mendizabal, Zucchetti; Magri (with Corrales, Ball, and Zucchetti) Red Riding Hood (4) - Pajdak, Edmonds; Dean*, Donnelly; Gasparini, Mock; Allnatt*, Emerton
  3. The Director clearly has confidence in Storm-Jensen, and I trust this is not misplaced. He has a decent track record in nurturing talent after all. This would not be the first time that a dancer has struggled with the move from rehearsal room to stage and, whilst there is a limit, I hope the Director keeps faith so that we get the chance to see what he sees. We should also bear in mind that, with Stix-Brunell off stage for the past two months, we have been down a lilac.
  4. Calvert performed the Lilac Fairy for the 2011 cinema screening (Cuthbertson/Polunin) whilst still a first artist, so there is precedent.
  5. Just stumbled across this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-scotland-17436349/airdrie-born-ballet-student-reece-clarke-scoops-dance-title
  6. Debut on opening night, with Osipova, replacing Muntagirov. No pressure Reece!
  7. In Raymonda last night, Tomas Mock replaced Reece Clarke in the Hungarian Dance. Does anyone know who replaced Mock in the Grand Pas? Presumably he can't have done both, but I didn't hear or see an announcement.
  8. Right! I thought the Rose Adage was incredible, but with that out of the way she seemed to loosen up and found another level. Just so good throughout
  9. Stalls Circle Standing D39 for 7th December 7:00pm evening performance of Sleeping Beauty. Face value £11 and it's an e-ticket. PM me and leave a message here if interested.
  10. Stalls Circle Standing D35 for 5th December 7:30pm evening performance of Sleeping Beauty. Face value £11 and it's an e-ticket. PM me and leave a message here if interested.
  11. I have returned student tickets to the box office in the past. Usual rules apply: you get a refund (less the administration charge) if the tickets resell.
