  1. Not really Richard as dancers often learn choreography without music at first, using counts. Its often only once you've learnt the moves, that you then add the music and start to work on musicality in the movement.
  2. Selling x 2 tickets for Romeo and Juliet: Saturday 25 May 2019, 7pm (Hayward /Corrales) Amphithéâtre C35 and C36 There may be a delay in responding to any DMs as I infrequently check my phone when at work.
  3. Could listen to Benjamin Britten's Prince of the Pagodas forever, inspired by his trip to Bali and gamalan music. Also love Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and the Firebird.
  4. Betterankles out of curiosity what's the fitness programme, and why isn't it working to help prevent injury?
  5. I apologise in advance for feeding into more conjecture as we will never know but it is curious that Cuthbertson in St P, and Sambe and Naghdi in London, were all allowed to guest and Osipova was not, as these dancers all have performances this week at the RB, and clearly illness or injury can then impact scheduled performances. Wishing Cuthbertson well, and pleased Kaneko gets another shot at Kitri with a new partner. Will look forward to hearing reports of the performance.
  6. Hello I'd be interested in the ticket please if its still available? Thanks Claire
  7. Here's a heartfelt Instagram post by Marcelino Sambe about his and Anna Rose O Sullivan's debut. What a lovely and humble human! Its interesting to read his Point magazine feature this week and about how he works to be cast and be seen as right for Prince and romeo type roles, as well as the more typical bravura ones his physique and technique might naturally lead to. I'm away sadly for their next performance and will await reviews with baited breath.
  8. I'm with you Darlex. Would LOVE for Prince and the Pagodas to come back! One of my fave scores of all time. Apart from that, I'd love to see a MacMillan triple with Rite of Spring, Requiem and Concerto.
  9. Hi Aliceinwoolfland I'd be interested in the ticket if its still available please? I will PM you as well. Thanks Clara
  10. Hi haven I'm interested in the 10 May ticket please I'll send you a PM. Thanks Claire
  11. I don't recognise the clip, but could the male dancer be Harry Alexander who is part of the Michael Clark Co and won emerging dancer at the NDA 2017 ? He does a lot of freelance dance as well.
  12. Hi Annemarriott I would like to buy the ticket please? Thank you Claire
  13. Hello I'm looking for x 1 ticket to Don Q on weds 4 April. Pm if available, thank you
  14. Isn't it funny Max that one can have such utterly different impressions. I'm afraid I don't agree with you I thought that Kaneko really made something of it, playful, kittenish, joyous, hilariously outraged with her father and gamache. She had me smiling from ear to ear throughout, what confidence and panache in act 1 and 3 and with the technical ability to pull off the choreography! In act 2, she was pure élégant lyrical classical, gosh I'd love to see her in sleeping beauty or Swan Lake, such soft bourrées and yet also sailing through the diagonal of grand jetés, just glorious! She demonstrated to me that she could act and bring a character to life, as well as be both a technical fireworks and a stunningly lyrical classical type of dancer. As Annamk remarked above after last weekend's matinee, a performance worthy of an experienced principal, just dazzling! Camargo maybe took a little while longer to warm up, but there were some wonderful moments of flirting, teasing Kitri in the first half of act 1, and more tender teasing in the second half. He seemed less at ease with the naturalistic style than the rest of the RB dancers but given that he was parachuted in but a few weeks ago to replace injured Bracewell, I feel like he did a good job and he really came out of his shell by act 3. I on the other hand liked edmonds and mendizabal as espada and Mercedes, but didn't feel like they set the stage on fire quite like Hirano and Morera for example and I certainly didn't think they stole the show by any means. Lukas B-B and romany padjak on the other hand as the lead gypsies... Wow what stage presence. Padjak was utterly beguiling with those eyes and backbends, extraordinary! A final shout out to Anna Rose osullivan as Kitri's friend with her attack and verve, and to all the RB dancers on stellar form.
